Adoption, Conception & Birth Consultation
 

You're adopting a baby, trying to get pregnant or you're pregnant and have a lot questions coming up. Your brain is filled with: What options are available to me? Do I inseminate at home with a midwife or at a clinic? What kind of birth do I want? Which care provider is best? What pediatrician should I choose? What do I need to bring baby home? Who takes my insurance? 

As a doula and childbirth education who has attended over 100 births in NYC, I am qualified to help you with your questions around conception, pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period. I intimately know resources in the area, including local hospitals, birth centers, midwives doctors, and holistic medicine specialists. 

Contact me to schedule a 1-2 hour consultation, in person or via phone, to help you decide the best options for the birth you want.

Topics that are most commonly discussed:

  • Where should I give birth?

  • Which midwife or doctor is right for me?

  • What's the difference between birthing in a birth center or the hospital?

  • I'm looking for complementary care providers (acupuncturists, massage therapists, chiropractors, therapists) who work specifically with pregnancy. Who do you recommend and why are these types of care beneficial?

  • I am thinking about switching care providers for the birth. Should I?

  • I need help with my birth Birth wishes/plan

  • What is a Doula and how can they help me?

  • Should I take a Childbirth Class? Which type is right for me? What will I learn?

  • What do I need to do to have the most support during the postpartum period?

  • What pediatrician is right for us and how do I choose them?

  • How should I set up my home to welcome our baby?
