Birth Recovery Care services are invaluable at ALL times, and equally (if not more so) during stressful and disrupted times like the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of the Birth Recovery support that I offer is available remotely when safety or logistics prohibit in-person care or remote services are otherwise desired.

Services provided to the Birth Giver will include*:

Belly Binding / Castor Oil Pack Special
Belly bindings and castor oil packs provide great physical and emotional comfort and support in the early days, weeks + postpartum.
