Are you looking for a doula?
Obviously, I believe in the help of doulas from my years of witnessing births and helping families postpartum. Not everyone wants one, but if you do, here are some doulas I have worked with personally and professionally.
Birthing Beyond (she also trains doulas...so yeah, she's awesome)
Searching for a prenatal provider or birth location?
Every family has their own preference for how to bring their children into the world. Here is a list of providers that I feel honor whatever birth experience you desire.
Looking for a way to stay in shape pre- or post-baby?
Birth and motherhood are about getting into your body and experiencing it from the inside out. Celebrate your changing and new body with some of these amazing instructors and studios that I have practiced with.
Looking for healing hands?
Chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, and physical therapists can be your best friends during pregnancy and beyond. Most of these great practitioners have worked on me personally.
Have some emotional shit to work through?
Not just any old counselor will do when it comes to the childbearing year. These are therapists that have been trained specifically to help women and men in the perinatal period, or those that I believe are very effective in their methods.
Breastfeeding can be hard, did you know that finding support doesn't have to be?
Breastfeeding in our modern world can be a lot more difficult than most realize. You'll always hear me say that if you build your support network before baby arrives, you'll have much more information if things get tough.
How do I find support and friendship in my new role as a parent?
There are a lot of formal and informal groups that will help you feel welcome and supported. Sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right one, but when you do, you can make friends for life (for you and your children).
