As your home birth midwives, we work in partnership to provide complete prenatal, birth and postpartum care. On call 24/7, we are available to answer questions, safely guide you through the intimate journey of pregnancy and birth, and celebrate with you as you welcome your child into the world. We bring a deep trust in birth and in the strength of each birthing family.
We charge a flat fee for complete prenatal, birth, and postpartum care. Insurance will often reimburse at least some of this fee, depending on your plan. We work with a biller to recover as much of your costs as we can.
We hold closely the values of feminism, anti-racism and anti-homophobia and am committed to serving all types of families regardless of race, religion, sexuality, gender, age, or ability. We believe that health care is a human right. If you are a low-income family, please inquire about our sliding scale.

As a member of the poly community and a parent of two now-adult children, I understand how hard it is to find professionals to help with your children’s needs, and what kind of awkward questions you’ll get, when you’re poly. You won’t have to worry about those awkward questions with me!
I’m an academic life coach, working with high school and college students, to help them develop the skills they need to be successful in school. I also identify and work through various non-academic issues that require life coaching with my clients. If your teenager or young adult child is struggling with school, I can help them overcome their struggles and succeed!
One-on-one coaching, including: personalized issue identification and goal-setting; study, habit, and accountability systems and strategies; individualized action plans; written summaries of each session; video recordings of some sessions; and guaranteed recurring time slots each week.
Outside of coaching, students will also receive email and text message access and reminders, access to weekly online office hours, and access to courses in the Anti-Boring Approach to Powerful Studying program. Coaching also provides accountability for the student, which can be critical.
If the child is underage, parents may be included in some sessions; if the child is an adult, I provide a waiver form that allows me to discuss certain issues with the parents if necessary.
Sessions are held using Zoom video chat, so distance is not a limitation on service.

I’m a certified birth and postpartum doula that works in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area. I’ve always been passionate about women being able to choose what works best for themselves and their families, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to assist families as they evolve and grow. The doula’s role of support, facilitating informed consent and fostering independence and confidence of the parents is what I want my life’s work to be. I base my actions as a doula on the philosophy that women can and should be trusted to make choices about their bodies and pregnancy, and will find what works best for their family. I work as both a birth and a postpartum doula to be able to provide the best continuity of care I am capable of.
As a birth doula, I assist women with non-medical physical support and emotional support through their active labour and delivery, and can provide some basic breastfeeding assistance. I can assist labour partners in learning comfort measures and will assist families in getting settled with their new member.
As a postpartum doula, I offer practical support, emotional support, non-judgmental listening, and good old fashioned mothering of the brand new mother. The extra hands to soothe mother and baby also help the family foster a sense of independence and self-confidence that lasts long after the doula’s stay with the family is over. I am certified in Adult, Child and Infant CPR and First Aid.

231 FLEMINGTON RD, CHAPEL HILL, NC, 27517, US
I’m a friendly, responsible, and college-educated childcare professional. I speak English, American Sign Language, and German and I have enough experience with Cued Speech to get by. I’ve been working with children from newborn to teens for over ten years. I believe that love makes a family, and I enjoy working with families of all sorts. I am also open to working with special needs children. I maintain my First Aid and Adult, Infant, and Child certifications and I believe in participating in a variety of different professional development classes to keep current on best practices and get new suggestions and ideas on how best to work with children.
As a professional, I believe it’s important for me to stay engaged with the children I work with. I like to do a lot of hands on activities and spend active time outdoors instead of simply plopping a child in front of a tv screen or a video game. I also think it’s important to provide children with healthy meals and snacks and help them learn how to make good choices so that they can grow up to become healthy, happy adults. When I become a part of a child’s life, I feel that requires a commitment on my part to be there for that child for many years in the future, whether or not I continue to work with that child professionally. I think it is important for children to know that they are cared for and loved beyond any fees that their parents may pay me for working with them. I want them to have as much stability as possible and be able to trust that I won’t just disappear one day out of the blue, never to be seen again.
