I'm here to help

In order to better serve my clients and community during the COVID-19 pandemic, I am pleased to announce that I am now offering group online childbirth education classes live! I continue to offer private online classes as well.

It is a strange time that we are currently living in with many unknowns…

~Can my support person stay with me?

~Can my baby stay with me?

~Can I breastfeed?

~Do I have to be tested for COVID-19? Does my support person? My baby?

~What if I’m positive?

You should be informed of your rights, and how you can best be supported during your labor and delivery.

Testimonials

The Mather's

Renee was kind, knowledgeable and supportive; we highly recommend her as a labor support doula.

The Sweet's

Not only will she be with us for any deliveries in the future she is now considered our friend. Hiring her was the best thing we ever did during our pregnancy.

The Schmelzenbach's

My birth went almost exactly as I wanted it to. A huge part of that is because I was able to feel at ease with the team around me and Renee was a huge part of making that happen.
