What is a Birth Doula?

A birth doula provides emotional and physical support before, during and after labor. I help guide your labor by offering suggestions for comfort measures, positioning and pain relief techniques. You may qualify for insurance covered doula services through Tricare or  Kansas/Missouri Medicaid.

The ability to pay should never keep someone from getting the support they need. If you are truly unable to afford services, you might be eligible for reduced-fee services. Book a free doula consult to learn more and mention the pay-what-you-can plan. You can find more information about this plan in the FAQs. Check for other resources for your pregnancy, birth and parenting here.

What is Lactation Support?

Lactation consults can cover simple or complex lactation issues including latch and positioning, pumping and bottle feeding or supply concerns. All consults include a customizable, unique care plan to help you manage any recommendations given. I will do my best to help you solve your issues in as few visits as possible but lactation issues are complicated and may require more than one visit. 
You may qualify for insurance-covered lactation support!

Pumping Consult

While nursing your baby can be a challenge, learning to use your pump correctly is a different issue. This session will cover flange fitting, pump settings, pumping schedules and other things you need to know about pumping. This is perfect for someone who is planning to, or already is exclusively pumping, and folks who are getting ready to go to work away from their baby.
