Nutrition: The most important thing you do.

I have listed some of my favorite resources for building a healthy pregnancy through optimal nutrition. I don't expect you to convert to veganism or vegetarianism, but rather use these resources to build a solid foundation for your nutrition.

Complementary Providers: Community

It's not just about midwifery care, but about finding a community of providers that will see you through pregnancy,birth and beyond. 

Doulas

We strive to provide the best resources in doula care. It is our policy to only recommend doulas with whom we have worked with personally. Doulas are a valuable part of the birth team and we feel these women will serve you beautifully!

Hypnobirthing

HypnoBirthing®, The Mongan Method is as much a philosophy of birth as it is a technique for achieving a satisfying, relaxing, and stress-free method of birthing. HypnoBirthing… This amazing program teaches you, along with your birthing companion, the art and joy of experiencing birth in a more comfortable manner. Using self-hypnosis techniques allows women to access their natural instincts to bring about a safer, easier, more comfortable birthing. Emphasis is placed on pregnancy and childbirth, as well as on pre-birth parenting and the consciousness of the pre-born baby. As a birthing method, HypnoBirthing® is as new as tomorrow and as old as ancient times. It is presented in a series of five, 2 1/2-hour classes. Register Here!

This series will encourage continued healing after birth and set up a solid foundation for getting back into your workout routine. The best part is, you’ll be with other moms who are going through the same thing as you.  Non-mobile babies are welcome to join. Cost for the series is $175, unless otherwise noted.
