Birth and Postpartum Planning

Email me at modernvillageformoms@gmail.com to schedule a planning session. I look forward to hearing from you!

Hospital Birth 101: $225

  • 2.5 hour private session for new and new-again couples planning a hospital birth.

  • Facilitated by a local L&D nurse with over a decade of experience working with moms and babies in the childbearing year.

  • The most powerful indicator of a good birth experience is not whether or not things go "according to plan", but rather that the birthing parent feels autonomy over their body. It is not how a labor "goes", but rather how a we are treated in birth that the birthing parent remembers for the rest of their life. 

  • This session will help you establish what you truly care about, what you kind of care about, and what doesn't matter so much to you. For example - Maybe you REALLY want to make sure to have delayed cord clamping for 5 whole minutes. The hospital policy is to let the cord pulse for 1 minute. I'll teach you how to find out what the normal protocol is, and how to advocate for longer if that's something you feel strongly about. I'll also give you a heads up on why your provider might clamp sooner and how to mitigate that. I'll help you figure things out like - your partner really DOESN'T want to cut the cord. Great. It's good to know! We will talk about all things from food in labor to hospital protocols, and more. I want you to not feel blindsided by things you didn't realize would happen when you show up in labor. 

  • Planning a natural birth? Epidural? Nitrous? I want to support and educate you to have the birth experience that is right for you and your baby - I have zero agenda around how you birth your baby. I have supported hundreds of mothers over the years to have beautiful births in so many different ways. 

  • Option to add on additional email or text support or a follow up call if, for example, your provider schedules an induction (Inductions are a whole other ball game and deserve a prep class of their own).

  • Following the session I will send you a few fun birth plan templates you can choose from that your birth team will enjoy. 

  • Access to my birth and postpartum book library.
