My services are offered on a sliding scale so that I can support all women. Some ways to self-identify yourself are listed below, please pay as you see fit.

Hear What Mothers Say
You might have some questions about birthkeeping...
Doulas are certified individuals who provide emotional and physical support for women in labor and birth. Doulas often attend medicalized births with Obstetricians or Licensed Midwives. Doulas help educate mothers and partners about the various types of monitoring, testing, and procedures a regulated care provider may request to perform. They then help the mother make informed decisions, as well as advocate for the mother.
Birthkeepers are educated women in all things physiological birth. Birthkeepers value and trust the mother’s intuition and sovereignty, over anything else. Birthkeepers often hold space for women in unassisted births, or “freebirths”. They too provide emotional and physical support for women in labor and birth. Birthkeepers respect a mother’s autonomy over her own body, baby, and birth process.
In the rare case in which a true emergency occurs, you will of course get the necessary help you feel you need. In our Prenatal Tea Date, we will have discussed how you would like to address potential complications should they occur – this might look like wanting to attempt a change in laboring positions, using homeopathy or herbal tinctures, and then if all else fails, you making the decision that you would like to either transfer or just have the EMT’s come assess the situation. I believe that when a true emergency is taking place, a mother will instinctively know something is wrong. I always listen to the mother and go with what she feels she wants or needs in any given moment. I do not argue against the mother’s wishes. I do not make decisions for the mother, and I do not perform any medical or life-saving procedures for her nor the baby/babies.
Each birthkeeper is different. As a birthkeeper, I attend births for no extra fee within 100 miles of my location. Please contact me if this would best suit you.
