There’s two ways to have your placenta encapsulated. If you want to experience the raw consumption, but don’t think you can handle the texture, you can have them put in capsules. The other way is to have the placenta steamed before being encapsulated.

Tamara was a wonderful doula! We had the pleasure of having her support us throughout the pregnancy, labor & delivery, and postpartum. During the pregnancy, she helped us build our birthing plan, research treatments for my diagnosis of gestational diabetes, and prepare and transition into a family of 5.

Birth Doula. Birth Companion. Birth Coach.  All are various descriptions that are commonly used to describe a doula.   The word doula is a Greek word meaning “woman's servant.” Women have been serving others in childbirth for centuries and have proven that support from women has a positive impact on labor.  Find out how doula can help you achieve a natural childbirth.

Tamara is the absolute best Doula to hire! We were referred to her by a friend who had delivered with her, but I had no idea the extent of love she would graciously share with us on our birth day.

Our little one decided to arrive 4 weeks early. Tamara stayed with us every step of the way. Communicating during early labor and joining us at the hospital in the middle of the night when active labor started.

I've been asked by many families if you only have a doula for the first birth. The answer is No. There are so many reasons you can have a birth doula regardless of which pregnancy this might be for you.

The day is finally here that you have waited nine months for; you think it is time to for baby to arrive.  So when is the best time to call your doula? Every doula is different on their guidelines on when the best time is. My philosophy - when YOU want me. What does that look like you ask?

When my first client approached me about wanting a water birth I was a little weirded out to be honest. I never wanted to do it myself with any of my births. I always thought, why would you want to sit in "your stuff?" And "what if you poop?"  These are just some of the random thoughts I had over the years as I delivered our seven children.   But I never expressed these thoughts to my client. I was very encouraging to her because this was her birth, her story, her body.
