Family-building

Family-building is a rich, complex process that looks differently for each of us. All of my family-building services are custom-tailored to support you in the envisioning, creation, nurturing, and thriving of your chosen family.

Conception Circle.

Conception Circle is a monthly in-person gathering at Twin Oaks in Louisville, KY. I invite you to join this group of people and partners, whether you’re just thinking of trying to conceive, are actively baby-making, or have been on your fertility journey for a long time. This workshop is inclusive of all genders and family structures; you are welcome to attend alone or partnered. Each workshop focuses on a different aspect of fertility and conception, and includes wisdom, activities, and resources for you to use during and after the class. All activities, snacks, and healing modalities are safe for pregnant and non-pregnant people alike, so come as you are and leave nourished and inspired for your conscious conception adventure. April 6th is all about NESTING and includes an acupuncture treatment from Becky Flynn of Five Elephants Acupuncture. On May 18th we’ll explore SENSUALITY and how pleasure, sex, and intimacy can support conscious conception. June 1st is an opportunity to shed some of your stress and fear around family-building, with a workshop on RELEASE.

Loss Medicine.

Loss Medicine is space held for you to process and integrate fertility and pregnancy losses through story sharing, plant medicine, movement, meditation, and ritual. If you’ve experienced a loss that needs tending to, whether it happened at 4 weeks or 40, whether no one or everyone knew, no matter how you feel, this workshop is for you. This gathering is inclusive of anyone who has experienced a pregnancy or fertility loss, including miscarriage, stillbirth, abortion, IVF embryo loss, being unable to or deciding not to have children. If you feel that you've experienced a loss, you have. Loss is loss and all experiences will be honored equally. This workshop takes place at Twin Oaks in Louisville, KY and is co-hosted by Josie Weber of Hearth + Moon. The next workshop takes place on March 29th from 6-8:30 PM.

One-on-one Coaching.

This is the quickest and easiest way to work with me. We can schedule a 30-minute session focused on any aspect of your family-building. First and foremost, I listen and help you get to the heart of what you want and need. From there, I offer resources, encouragement, wisdom, and support. We can create rituals and routines to support you through conception and pregnancy, talk through scripts to use with care providers, dig into sex, routines, trauma—anything that is coming up for you in regards to your family-building journey. I can teach you the basics of cycle charting and fertility awareness, read tarot for you and your growing family, and anything in between. You can book one or multiple coaching sessions, available online to folks around the world.

Story Sharing Medicine.

Our stories hold deep power and medicine. In an in-person story sharing medicine session, I will hold space for you to share about an experience, feeling, or part of yourself. Perhaps it’s childhood trauma, family wounds, a traumatic birth, or a difficult loss. This offering can be helpful as you try to conceive, during pregnancy, or after a new person/new people have joined your family. In addition to sharing, we’ll work together to integrate your story and begin to heal the affected parts of yourself. This offering includes movement and meditation to help your body/mind/spirit process the story you share, as well as your very own Wild Unknown Tarot deck to use in our session and beyond.

Fertility Friend.

Whether you’ve been exploring your fertility and trying to conceive for a week, a month, or years, as your Fertility Friend, I’m here to offer deep, heart-felt, personalized support that fills in the gaps and makes it possible for you to thrive throughout the complex journey of conception. This package includes 4 in-person meetings where we will craft experiences, rituals, routines, shifts, and networks to help you (and your partner(s), if you’ve got them) build a more fertile life. The Fertility Friend offering also includes text and email support and a sexy and sweet Conscious Conception gift basket, full of magic including herbal products, sex toys, lube, The Redefining Success Journal by Vyana-Novus Magee, the Wild Unknown Tarot deck, and acupuncture sessions at Five Elephants Acupuncture.

Early Bird Babe.

The early days of pregnancy can be intense, overwhelming, joyous, scary, weird, you-fill-in-the-blank, and first trimester support is often lacking. If you want continuous, customized support from the day you suspect you’re pregnant, the Early Bird Babe is for you. Let me be your Google; this package includes 2 in-person meetings, online content, text and email support, and an Early Bird Babe gift basket with goodies like The Redefining Success Journal by Vyana-Novus Magee, the Wild Unknown Tarot deck, herbal products, a vibrator, lube, snacks, and an acupuncture session at Five Elephants Acupuncture. If you want to continue working with me after week 12 of pregnancy, you can transition into the Pregnancy + Postpartum Pal or Birth Bestie packages with a 10% discount.

Pregnancy + Postpartum Pal.

As your Pregnancy + Postpartum Pal, I’m here to offer you love, support, knowledge, and connection that nourishes you in creating a pregnancy, birth, and postpartum experience that feels like YOU, as you are and as you are becoming. I’m not a tick-the-boxes doula, and I’m not an inside-the-box kinda person. As your pregnancy and postpartum doula, I offer dynamic, tailored-to-you support as I journey alongside you with fierceness, softness, and openness. In addition to helping you navigate the massive physical and emotional shifts of pregnancy and postpartum, I’m here to support you in building a life, home, family, and village that holds and elevates you and your babe(s). This package includes 4 in-person meetings, online content, text and email support, and a Pregnancy + Postpartum Pal gift basket with goodies like The Redefining Success Journal by Vyana-Novus Magee, Nurture by Erica Chidi Cohen (or an equally awesome book that suits your needs and identities), the Wild Unknown Tarot deck, herbal products, a vibrator + lube (because connection, intimacy, and sexuality CAN thrive during pregnancy and postpartum), acupuncture sessions at Five Elephants Acupuncture, food and meal prep, and welcome-earthside gifts for your babe(s). This package does not include in-person birth support, but does encompass loads of personal exploration that will ready you for birth and postpartum, birth planning, and all of the love sent your way during birth and labor.

Birth Bestie.

Engaging me as your Birth Bestie is perfect if you’re all in. If you want comprehensive, dynamic, love-packed in-person support throughout your pregnancy, birth and postpartum, this offering was made just for you. I bring the same fierceness, softness, and openness to you as your pregnancy, birth and postpartum doula. The Birth Bestie offering includes everything that the Pregnancy + Postpartum Pal package does, as well as in-person birth support, whether you’re laboring and giving birth at home, in the hospital, or in a birth center. I can help you craft a breathtaking birth plan, am knowledgable about the anatomy, physiology, hormones, and experience of birth, and give a mean hip squeeze. But the most essential value that I bring to your birth comes in the form of my awareness and my love. As your Birth Bestie, I will hold space for you to breakdown and breakthrough so that you can feel exactly how you want to feel, no matter what gets thrown your way. This package includes in-person birth support, 4 in-person meetings, online content, text and email support, and a Pregnancy + Postpartum Pal gift basket with goodies like The Redefining Success Journal by Vyana-Novus Magee, Nurture by Erica Chidi Cohen (or an equally awesome book that suits your needs and identities), the Wild Unknown Tarot deck, herbal products, a vibrator + lube (because connection, intimacy, and sexuality CAN thrive during pregnancy and postpartum), acupuncture sessions at Five Elephants Acupuncture, food and meal prep (let’s make your first meal post-birth one of the best of your LIFE), and welcome-earthside gifts for your babe(s).

And Then There Were More.

With so much focus on pregnancy and birth, what happens next? As your postpartum doula, I focus on helping you thrive after birth as you navigate identity losses, shifts, and rebirths and connect with a new member (or members!) of your family. In this package I support each member of your family in healing, growing, and connection from inside out, with the help of nourishing food and drink, essential heart-to-heart conversations, rest, fun, play, and embodied experiences. This package includes 4 in-person meetings, online content, text and email support, and a Pregnancy + Postpartum Pal gift basket with goodies like The Redefining Success Journal by Vyana-Novus Magee, the Wild Unknown Tarot deck, herbal products, a vibrator + lube (because connection, intimacy, and sexuality CAN thrive postpartum), acupuncture sessions at Five Elephants Acupuncture, food and meal prep, and welcome-earthside gifts for your babe(s).
