I’m committed to making this work for you! Please contact me to discuss a custom package that would best suit your needs, or to discuss payment plan options. This is your birth. You deserve to feel supported and prepared for one of the biggest transitions of your life.

The packages listed below are just a jumping off point. I’m happy to customize the services you need with specialized support such as:

  • Breastfeeding education, with what you need to know about breastfeeding before that hungry, growing baby is here. Perfect if you are feeling the need to build your support network as a new mom, or family or friends are far away.
  • Experienced in-person breastfeeding support in your own home once baby has arrived. Sensitive care to get you through the challenges, with information and resources to help you reach your personal breastfeeding goals.
  • Prenatal yoga in the privacy of your home, tailored to your stage of pregnancy, physical needs and personal interests. Will include poses you can use to alleviate pregnancy aches and pains, ease your labour and support your health in your postpartum period.A great way to involve your partner or family members!
  • Postpartum yoga in the privacy of your home, with or without your family. Using simple, gentle movements you can use throughout your day to aid your recovery from birth and regain core stability, while relaxing overworked “mommy muscles”.
