How does COVID impact the support I offer?

  • Most, if not all, of our prenatal time together will be virtual. As we explore this time together, I am open to meeting with my families in person under mutually safe conditions and with  reasonable precautions taken.
  • I still attend labors + births physically. I wear a mask the entire time that I am with parents in their birth spaces. I also change into my birth gear when I arrive on-site. And I always have hand sanitizer on hand to use as needed.
  • I am not accepting postpartum clients at this time. In order to limit the potential exposure, I am opting to focus solely on birth support at this time. If you are seeking postpartum support, feel free to reach out for referrals!

You get a shirt.

Someone else gets birth support.

Community support helps make it possible for me to provide my services to families who cannot currently afford to invest in them. And it spreads the word on why birth support is valuable. Be a part of the work!
