What we do


PRENATAL AND EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT
There's a lot of great information out there through books, the internet, and childbirth education classes that can leave you wondering what you actually do during labor. We can help you navigate that information and help you prepare a plan with your desired methods and general preferences. Processing everything beforehand with someone dedicated to supporting you is incredibly valuable.  

PHYSICAL SUPPORT
We have been trained in a myriad of comfort measures to ease the challenges of childbirth. Whether it's a massage to relax you or distract you, getting you into a better laboring position, or applying counter-pressure and hip squeezes, we will work tirelessly to meet your physical needs during labor.

EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL SUPPORT
We will be by your side encouraging you and caring for you every step of the way. Labor can become quickly overwhelming even for the most prepared couple. We can re-center you and refocus you when needed, reminding you of your goals, and help process what is happening with you.
