Fall updates

I am still welcoming birth doula clients with estimated due dates before September 30th, 2014. I am not accepting clients with October or November due dates, but can offer some services on a case by case basis in December 2014 and January 2015.  Please contact me if you are a repeat client either way! If I can't serve you during your estimated date range then I'll do my best to help you find the right match. 

I will still be offering placenta encapsulation full-time and hope to offer midwifery services after a bit of a hiatus from being on-call by 2015.

In the meantime I may see you at The NOVA Natural Birth Center, or view the list of out of hospital midwives that serve the Northern Virginia and DC area here.

If you're looking for a doula I'll most likely send you to the District Doulas, a group I created along with Candice Jones and Ryann Morales in 2012. We worked on refining the group  for one year before I began to focus more one the last phase of my midwifery studies in the winter of 2014. They work on a shared-call schedule and are excellent. If you're looking for a solo doula provider I often formerly backup Cara Crowe (caracrowebirthworker.com) as well. We have an excellent community here but the experienced doulas are often booked pretty early on!

First days of Spring, 2014

In time for the Vernal Equinox, warming temperatures, and increasing daylight.. as of March 2014 I am accepting my own clients into my private doula practice again! This means I alone would be doing all of the prenatal, labor, delivery, and postpartum support. 

Because I take on such a small client load the necessity for a backup is quite small, but I do have backup arrangements.

I also have limited availability in the 2nd and 3rd weeks of August.
