Spinning Babies® November 17th 9am - 1pm

Spinning Babies is an approach to optimize the physical relationship between the bodies of the mother and baby for the easing of childbirth. Spinning Babies is a NEW PARADIGM that takes clues from baby’s position and station for natural, physiological solutions. We believe that fetal positions are not random, that babies fit the space available. There is more available room when the muscles and other soft tissues are balanced.

VBAC Class November 24th 9 am - 1 pm

Placenta Encapsulation

What if women could have additional support during their post-baby time? 

Using the Traditional Chinese Medicine Method (TCM) of encapsulation, and trained through Placenta Benefits® I transform a woman's placenta into capsules. Over 80% of my clients feel they received some benefit, primarily reporting more even moods, improved energy, & decreased anxiety.

"Thanks Heather, we had our nugget June 1. Your class was amazing and your tips worked! I had prodromal labor which was uncomfortable but not painful and then my labor was only 2hrs and 42 minutes!!!! Only 10 minutes of pushing! Also water birth and took away at least 15% of my pain- wouldn't do it any other way for my next kids. Thanks again for being such a great resource! "

"Heather was on call for the birth of my daughter & really helped me get through it. There was a few scary minutes when my daughter was a little stuck & Heather knew exactly what to do. I give all the credit to her for making me change positions, telling me where to put my hands, my foot & just taking over. My daughter was born 3 pushes later. If I didn't have Heather, I think it could have been a totally different outcome. Having the extra support through out my pregnancy & the delivery was priceless. I learned a lot this time! They gave me many tips on supplements, things to eat, drink & how to make sure I had the best pregnancy ever. Do yourself a favor & hire these amazing women. You will not regret it. 100 stars! "

"I could not be happier with my experience and I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!!! The majority of my experience was working with Heather. Heather completely changed everything I thought I knew about childbirth. She educated me on exactly what the body goes through and helped us understand that I had choices and the right to stand up for the type of medical care we recieved. Heather provided education, support, and guidance throughout the entire process and I am forever grateful for her. I especially love the support they offered my fiance. He was able to hold me and help me through the birth because of the guidance and support from Heather. She always allowed him and I to work together and sort of "coached" him at times. This made an incredibly painful experience much more special and and brought my fiance and I much closer together. He was just as much a part of the birth as I was and I couldn't be happier. On October 22 I naturally gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby girl and I know I couldn't have done it without Heather. No way. Not a chance. Heather was there every step of the way providing reassurance and a comfort and her visitis after the birth were also great because it gave me time to ask all of my millions of questions and have reassurance that I was doing things right. 312Doulas are absolutely amazing and I will definitely be using them again if I have another baby!
