We spend so much energy preparing our external world for a baby. We need to spend equal energy preparing our mind, body, and spirit.

  • 2 Prenatal Preparation Sessions - It is important for us to get to know your family. To discuss any fears, hopes, and desires surrounding your birth. To determine the level of involvement your partner wants to have. To discuss your likes and dislikes, food preferences, and what brings you comfort. Getting to know you is what allows us to best assist you on the big day. In these sessions, we will create a birth plan, explore pain coping strategies and map your baby.

Birth Doula Services: About


Suffering from round ligament pain? Nausea and vomiting? Urinary leakage? Back pain? Sciatica? Constipation? Acid reflux? Lightning vagina? Sacroiliac or pubic bone pain? 

We're here for you, mama. 

Treatment can include a variety of therapeutic techniques to address things like pelvic alignment, soft tissue mobilization for muscle relaxation, pelvic floor education and exercise, breathing techniques, etc. Each treatment session will be catered to your body and your needs and will help in getting you in the best shape for delivery and for keeping you comfortable and relaxed while we wait for the arrival of your baby. Sessions are available in your home or in our Naperville office.


Suffering from urine leakage? Diastasis recti/Abdominal wall separation? Pain with sex? Constipation? Hemorrhoids? Low back, hip, or pelvic pain? Scar tissue issues? Heaviness in the pelvic area?

We're here for you, mama.

Addressing what our bodies have gone through during pregnancy and labor and delivery is so important in the postpartum period. In postpartum treatment sessions, we will evaluate and treat your body as a whole. Treatments may incorporate things like, manual therapy to scar tissue adhesions from perineal tears or c-section sites, releases to fascial restrictions around the organ systems involved in labor and delivery, and a comprehensive assessment of pelvic floor muscle function to prevent pelvic pain, bowel/bladder dysfunction, and pelvic organ prolapse. Every treatment session will be catered to your body and your needs and will help in getting your body back into homeostasis following delivery. Sessions are available in your home (because let's be honest, it's hard to leave the house with a newborn) or in our Naperville office.
