Birth Essence is a place where women and their partners can feel supported, empowered, and better informed to make the best decisions for achieving the type of birth that they want. Whether you need a birth doula, help with breastfeeding, or a baby wearing demonstration, I am here to help!
My job as a doula is to help you and your partner work together as a team to have the most satisfying birth experience possible. I answer questions about pregnancy, labor, birth, and the fourth trimester. I am here to offer encouraging words and positive vibes to make birth less frightening. You are the most powerful being on earth as your body was meant to give life. Embrace that power!!!
“Breastfeeding is an instinctual and natural act, but it is also an art that is learned day by day.” ~Le Leche League It’s true that breastfeeding is a natural process, but it is also a learned process. Sometimes both the mother and baby need help figuring it out. The help from an experience woman can make all the difference in a mother/child breastfeeding journey.
Postpartum doula provides evidenced based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother-baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care. A postpartum doula is there to help the family adjust to life with a newborn whether it’s just for a few days or a few weeks.
Our Breastfeeding Support Group meets on the 2nd Saturday of each Month @ 1pm at the Riverton Public Library.
