Welcome to Cherished and Birth
How I Assist
I take on a limited number of clients at any one time to make sure I can give you the full care and attention you deserve. By offering Prenatal Consultations, my goal is to reduce any stress, allowing you to pay attention to your body and your baby. I will offer you tools such as: comfort touch techniques, various laboring positions, education, resources, and the use and rental option of a TENS labor unit. During this time, I will be able to learn more about you and how any partners, family members, and myself can work together to offer you the best support possible.
Pregnancy and Birthing Support
With my Pregnancy and Birthing Support, I offer unwavering support to you and your family before, during and after birth. I will stay in close contact during pregnancy in order to routinely check how you’re doing and to fully address any questions that may arise before labor. Once labor has started, I will be by you and your partner's side for continuous support. I will start hands on physical comfort techniques as soon as I arrive to you. I will be there to offer education, remind you of your options and priorities, and to help with communication. I will watch and listen to your physical and verbal ques to indicate what positions may be the most beneficial for you and baby. I will always enter your space with an open mind, open heart, and open arms.
My support doesn't stop once the baby is born. I will stay with you for up to two hours after birth to answer any questions, get you hydrated and fed, and help with breastfeeding if needed. Once you get home and settled for a few weeks I will then stop by, in the comfort of your own home, to see how you are adjusting and offer any additional resources.
