Work With Me

What I offer:

I live in and serve the Oregon City, OR and Canby, OR area as a doula and with group classes, workshops and individual sessions focused on gaining strength and function for the prenatal and postpartum body! I also offer Skype sessions for those unable to travel or who don’t live in the area.

I'm also deeply passionate about supporting birth workers through practical and specific movement protocols through courses and workshops.

I create programs to make movement accessible to all my clients using restorative exercise. I teach postpartum exercise (6 weeks – 50+ years postpartum) classes and workshops, as well as functional movement exercise classes. My goal is for people to leave feeling AMAZING, the deep contented sigh at the end of class is music to my ears.

  

Birth Doula Services:

What is a doula?

A birth doula is a companion who supports a birthing person during labor and birth. Birth doulas are trained to provide continuous, one-on-one care, as well as information, physical support, and emotional support to birthing persons and their partners, they are not health care professionals or replace your health care providers in any way, rather we are an integral part of your team.


Why use a doula?

Research has shown that people who have continuous support during childbirth experience a:

  • 25% decrease in the risk of Cesarean; the largest effect was seen with a doula (39% decrease)
  • 8% increase in the likelihood of a spontaneous vaginal birth; the largest effect was seen with a doula (15% increase)
  • 10% decrease in the use of any medications for pain relief
  • Shorter labors by 41 minutes on average
  • 38% decrease in the baby’s risk of a low five minute Apgar score
  • 31% decrease in the risk of being dissatisfied with the birth experience

Can I use a doula if I’m birthing in a hospital/c-section/epidural, etc?

Absolutely! As your doula, my goal is to support you, your vision and goals, no matter how that looks!

My doula services:

Labor has a unique rhythm. There are fast paced moments where I will be very hands on. There are slower moments where I will take a step back. I will never take the place of any other member of your support team. And I will fully support any decision you make.

As your doula I will provide:

Position ideas and resources

Support you and your plan and goals

Continually insure that you feel safe, heard, and respected

Encourage your partner to eat, drink, and rest at appropriate times, so you don’t have to

Be a constant support

After the newest addition to your family makes their appearance, I will assist you in cleaning up, getting comfortable, and nourishing yourself after birth.
