Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. - Lao Tzu
personalized and compassionate prenatal, labor, and postpartum home birth support
Early Prenatal Care
Beginning prenatal care as soon as you find out you are pregnant allows for support with any pregnancy discomforts and early pregnancy concerns. I offer short term care for those who can't get into to an obstetrician right away and are planning to give birth in the hospital. Your care can be transferred to a hospital based provider as soon as space is available or when you are ready.
Having a miscarriage is difficult both physically and emotionally. This is made even more difficult when left to experience the process alone without much knowledge of what to expect. Those experiencing a pregnancy loss deserve heartfelt, gentle, respectful support during this difficult time. I provide compassionate care and support by phone or in your home, explaining options, tests, or procedures as well as helping determine whether additional care may be needed.

There are several class options to help prepare families for birth with information, support, and tools that increase your confidence. From a full Lamaze course to quick refresher for experienced parents, we've got you covered! Current class offerings and dates can be found at The Oasis Reno's website.
The intensity that accompanies giving birth can leave many people with a complex mix of emotions. Even a birth that ends in a healthy baby and an overall positive birth experience may have some pieces that, by themselves, could benefit from processing.
