Holistic Nursing Consultation
A well-supported and planned for postpartum period can be delightful and allow you to cherish this special time with your new baby.
Pregnancy and early parenting are life changing experiences. They can be exciting, joyful, overwhelming and scary all at the same time! Often families are overwhelmed and wishing that their baby came with a user’s manual. I help women and families discover they do have a user’s manual and its often referred as intuition, gut feeling, or inner knowledge. It’s the part of you that needs to be nurtured and supported during this time so you can grow into a confident and empowered parent. Holistic nursing consultations support you during this complex and often stressful transition to parenting. Holistic nursing consultations can help you plan for and enjoy your postpartum period. Holistic care recognizes that we are more than a sum of all of our parts. I care for the whole person. Providing holistic nursing care means that I use all of my expertise to support the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual parts of you. I also consider your family values and your environment in our care plan. These consultations are prefect for families that don’t quite need a postpartum package but would still like some support.
This is for you if
You want a combination of the holistic services I offer - nursing, postpartum doula, healing touch and lactation support.
You have things balanced for the most part but need a little help to meet your needs and you want the option of adding more help if you need more.
You want only one visit or a few visits
You want personalized care that looks at you as a whole person
You want support that is tailored to your family's individual needs
You want someone to meet with at any point in time (before, during and/or after your baby is born)
You want support in addition to your doctor, midwife, and/or birth doula
You want to be empowered as you transition to parenthood
What are my areas of expertise?
I am a registered nurse, a certified postpartum doula and healing touch apprentice. I bring a wealth of knowledge from each of these areas to my practice of holistic support. I invite you to learn more about me and my qualifications on my ABOUT page.
How is this different than the other services I provide?
When you meet with me for a holistic nursing consultation you are getting a combination of all of the services I have to offer. You will receive customized support and care that utilizes my expertise as a registered nurse, a postpartum doula, and a Healing Touch student. Postpartum support often only covers the first 6 weeks after birth and consists of scheduled visits each week. I want to offer a service that supports and cares for women and their families at any point during the childbearing year. These consultations are also for the families that want support but don’t desire the level of support my postpartum packages provide. I created these consultations to meet your unique needs.
What can I do for you?
My passion is educating soon-to-be and new parents. I can help you plan for the common challenges of the childbearing year. This may include: nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep, self-care, emotional support, early parenting, newborn care and safety, bonding with newborn, breastfeeding, sibling support and more. My goal is to support and help you and your partner plan for the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual challenges of postpartum and early parenting.
