Tammi loves serving birthing women! She also attends births as a doula, a professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth; or who provides emotional and practical support during the postpartum period. My doula packages start at $1000.
Your Personal Midwife
Tammi offers her skills and years of training and practice as a personal midwife for those mommas not wanting to birth at home. This allows her to provide doula support and include her medical expertise in serving you and your baby for the length of your pregnancy, birth, and post partum. This one-on-one relationship with a midwife during your pregnancy allows you to have all the information you could possibly want in making your pregnancy its healthiest. When your OB visits feel too short or you need someone knowledgeable to guide you during your pregnancy, your personal midwife is there by your side. You get that extra TLC with information that only a midwife can provide.
I have the unique ability to be able to incorporate all of my years of training and practice in offering such personal care at home before going to the hospital or birth center. Such monitoring can include vital signs, cervical checks, and fetal heart monitoring, which are especially reassuring to VBAC mommas and mommas looking to avoid going to the hospital too soon. As all of my homebirth moms breastfeed, I also offer that expertise in the care of you and your baby. Not every woman wants to birth at home and this allows you to have access to that skilled care before, during and after the birth. Packages start at $1500.
My doula training is as a HypnoBirthing Professional Labor CompanionSM. An HBPLC provides continuous support to families prenatally, throughout labor and postpartum. This unique training includes traditional doula training and also provides the Labor Companion with the skills necessary to serve the needs of HypnoBirthing families and any momma using hypnosis for childbirth. It is truly empowering support, whether or not you use HypnoBirthing or other hypnosis for childbirth.
