Traditional Birth Keeper
What is a traditional birth keeper?
A traditional birth keeper is a birth witness who honours the natural physiological experience of birth, undisturbed and completely guided by the sovereign mother.
A Birth Keeper is often times described as a Traditional Midwife, but should not be confused with a licensed, regulated medwife. I am working towards traditional birth keeping midwifery but do not currently offer traditional midwifery services.

Birthing Education includes information on everything from Wild Pregnancy through to Wild Mothering.
I have three package options:
Basic Wild Support
I am available throughout your pregnancy and birthing journey, into early postpartum for any questions or recommendations for plant medicines or homeopathies. This is a phone and email connection, and has no in person contact beyond the consultation.
Wild Birth Support
I provide everything from Basic Wild Support plus I provide 2 specific prenatal meetings, covering the basic birth education necessary for birthing at home or with a midwife. I am on on-call for your birth the month surrounding your anticipated due date. I attend the birth from whenever you feel you need me and stay until you feel confident in my departure. I offer 2 postpartum follow ups.
Full Wild Village
I provide everything from Wild Birth Support AND monthly meetings for support and discussion surrounding pregnancy. This is a full spectrum package. This package is best suited for mothers who are facing birth alone, or are wanting to know ALL THE THINGS. I offer a more in depth postpartum service, specific to breastfeeding. This package is best booked as soon as you believe you are pregnant.
I accept Interac e-Transfer, or Cash.
I offer payment plans to suit your needs.
