BELLY CASTING

Pregnancy is a special time and it will all too soon be a memory. Belly casting is a unique way to preserve your memory of your journey with this baby. Local artists can be commissioned to further decorate/detail your cast!

PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION

Some mothers choose to encapsulate their placenta after delivery to help ease the transition from pregnancy to postpartum. Benefits of this practice include balancing of hormones, decreased postpartum depression rates, decreased post natal bleeding, increased milk production, increased iron levels, increased energy levels, assisting the uterus in returning to it's pre-pregnancy state, and improving mother/infant bond. 

Our placenta encapsulation service includes supplies, instructions, pickup and delivery, all which are guaranteed 24-36 hours after pickup.

POSTPARTUM DOULA SERVICES

You’ve had your baby, now let us help you transition during this time with the help of our postpartum doula services. Our postpartum doula comes into your home and does everything she can to help you by easing other responsibilities so you can rest, heal, and bond with your baby. She can do light housework, care for siblings, prepare meals, help with breast-feeding, or even take care of baby while you have some self-care time. It really does take a village and we hope you will allow us to be yours!
