Infant and Pregnancy Loss Support

~ Infant Loss ~ Miscarriage ~ Stillbirth ~

I am sending love and gentle hugs to you. If you had a miscarriage, stillbirth, experienced infant death (sids) or suffered an unfavorable outcome with an ultrasound, I am here for you. If you are pregnant and found out that your little light has died and you need extra support, I am here for you. The skills a doula has in providing emotional and physical support, facilitating informed choice conversations, and often offering an alternative perspective to common medically-managed options are exactly the same whether they are being used for a birth, a miscarriage or loss, planned abortion or in fertility.

Miscarriage Doula

Miscarriage, is a transition that deserves thoughtful support. As a miscarriage doula, I am trained to provide emotional, mental, physical, and informational support during and after miscarriage (including those that require medical care like surgery or medication). Miscarriage doula support is ideal for people who are looking for dedicated support during a challenging time of life. There are no right or wrong feelings about having a miscarriage, but people may want to have a supportive, knowledgeable, and non-judgmental person to talk through things with,  before, during and after the experience—someone who is solely there to hear, see, and hold space, with no other agenda. Miscarriage doula services are highly individualized to the person having the experience, but can look like:

  • Information about medical miscarriage management, interventions, and choices
  • Help with planning and education resources
  • Support as you advocate for your needs and wishes
  • Help communicating with medical providers, family, friends, and other support people
  • Comfort measures and pain management techniques
  • Suggestions and guidance for emotional self-care
  • Suggestions and guidance for physical self-care, including herbal support
  • Listening and processing
  • Compassionate witnessing
  • Support and education post-miscarriage
  • Legacy Creations
  • Funeral plans

We will decide, together, what our relationship looks like, but it will always include emotional support and space-holding for you during this transition. In general, we work together for a period of weeks (2-6) and have 1-3 phone calls or video (Zoom) sessions, plus lots of text and email.

Abortion Doula

Abortion is a transition of the body, mind, and spirit, one that deserves thoughtful support. As a virtual abortion doula, I am trained to provide emotional, mental, physical, and informational support during and after a surgical or medication abortion. Abortion doula support is ideal for people who are looking for dedicated support during the mental, physical and emotional transition of abortion. There are no right or wrong feelings about having an abortion, but people may want to have a supportive, knowledgeable, and non-judgmental person to talk through things with, before, during and after the experience—someone who is solely there to hear, see, and hold space, with no other agenda. Abortion doula services are highly individualized to the person having the experience, but can also look like:

  • Information about medical abortion management, interventions, and choices
  • Help with planning and education resources
  • Support as you advocate for your needs and wishes
  • Help communicating with medical providers, family, friends, and other support people
  • Comfort measures and pain management techniques
  • Suggestions and guidance for emotional self-care
  • Suggestions and guidance for physical self-care, including herbal support
  • Listening and processing
  • Compassionate witnessing
  • Support and education post-abortion

My Philosophy:

As a death doula, I do not judge your choices, your actions, your desires, or your experience.  I am here to support you in figuring out what makes sense for you; that may include decision making, healing, processing, and more.
