By definition, a full spectrum doula is a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and informational support to women throughout the full spectrum of reproductive healthcare. YES. Finally. A term for the all-encompassing work that I do, that resonates with me. As I address the reproductive process, function and system throughout all stages of life. Pulling in all of the magic, knowledge, and tools I possess as a pelvic floor physical therapist and visceral manipulation practitioner.

___

I will doula you through conception and fertility. Increasing blood flow, opening up the pathways, and priming the system to welcome new life. I will hug and congratulate you when good news is received and boost you up and tend to your tissues when your mind needs reassurance. 

___

I will doula you prenatally. Navigating morning sickness, nutrition, exercise. Treating your aches and pains in order to get your body in the best possible state for your upcoming birth. Becoming your very own birth preparation course, catered and delivered to you, through me. 

___

I will doula you through your birth. Adjusting your pelvis, calming your nervous system, optimizing positioning, holding space. Mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Until we welcome your baby earth-side.

___

I will doula you from your first seconds postpartum. Bonding, breast feeding, nurturing. Tending to you. Tending to your new baby. I will continue to doula you throughout the fourth trimester and beyond, as postpartum is forever. Returning functionality to your core and pelvic floor, closing your diastasis, combating urinary leakage, keeping your organs where they belong. Making you feel really freaking good in your new, stronger than ever, body. 

___

I will doula you as you transition into menopause. Balancing your endocrine system. Addressing vaginal dryness, hot flashes, emotional ties. Navigating sexuality. Easing your body into its new hormonal state from a place of love, acceptance, and gratitude.

That is who I am. That is what I do. And that is what it means to be a full spectrum doula

 

DO YOU WANT TO FEEL...

LISTENED TO?

EMPOWERED?

TAKEN CARE OF?

 

TESTIMONIALS

“Stefanie’s techniques helped me quickly progress during labor when we had been at a point where my cervix seemed to stop dilating. Her verbal cues helped me to put aside the pain and focus on relaxing and allowing my body to take over. I honestly do not think I would have been able to have an unmedicated birth without Stefanie’s expertise and coaching.”

C.P.

 

“Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life.”
