Postpartum Package


This is a package with 10 hours postpartum support plus a free hour for the first meeting.

I actively recommend postpartum doulas to all of my clients who may have less support at home (single parent, partner away, etc…).
Two major contributors to postpartum depression are fatigue and lack of support.
Having a doula around you while you bond with your baby can be critical to maternal-infant attachment, mental health, and future parenting.

A 2009 study in the Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic & Neonatal Nursing found that postpartum doulas effectively promote maternal responsiveness and competence in new moms.

Gift Certificates

Looking for something special for the person you love?

Gift Certificates for birth and postpartum doula services, and any of my classes are an excellent gift for any expectant family!

A gift certificate is perfect for:
– extra care during pregnancy and/or after the baby is born (baby is premature, there are no close relatives, …)
– baby shower or welcoming baby home gift from a group of friends
– when planned help has not yet arrived
– when a new mom needs brief “crisis intervention” support to help her through a challenging time
– massage
– birth preparation classes

Gift certificates can be purchased before or after the birth of a new baby by an individual or a group of family members, friends or work colleagues. The gift certificate can be used for a full package, toward a package or added onto an existing package.

Belly Balm&Bengkung. Belly binding service


Any woman who has given birth can tell you that the feeling of a squishy belly after several months of a taught firm belly feels a little weird. All of those months of your baby and uterus growing, your skin stretching, and your hips widening takes a toll on your body. Those first few days postpartum are something to get used to. We don’t have the same balance, as now we don’t have the extra weight pulling us forward. We don’t sleep in the same positions because now that baby isn’t in the way but we can’t go back to our pre-pregnancy positions either because the uterus still needs to shrink down. Something we don’t often think about though is the baby, uterus, skin, and hips aren’t the only parts undergoing a transformation. The muscles are also equally affected. The great news is, belly binding can help!
