A doula is someone who is trained to support a birthing family or person, in labor, and during the postpartum period. A doula supports the birthing family emotionally, physically, spiritually, and informationally, with focus on the birthing person. A doula is the member of your birth team that provides continuous care from the time that they are called to you in when you are in labor until after you give birth. Mama Nurture Wellness is dedicated to serving families of all shapes, sizes, LGBTQ, cultures, religious backgrounds.
Natural infant feeding can be tough in the beginning! You are not alone: 92% of new parents report lactation issues in the first week of their baby's life! In the early days, learning how to work with your infant's behavior to achieve a comfortable latch can be challenging, but not impossible. Let's work together to problem solve why there is discomfort. Mama Nurture Wellness provides numerous lactation services including: lactation consultation, lactation support group, and prenatal lactation education.
Massage Therapy has many benefits. It is beneficial in reducing such issues as anxiety, headaches, insomnia, aches and pains of pregnancy, pelvic floor imbalance, back pain, and the list continues. Mama Nurture Wellness provides office based and in home massage services. Massage types offered: Prenatal, Postpartum, and Therapeutic Massage. Prenatal and Postpartum massage may be performed face down or side-lying. We have special cushion systems to make either incredibly comfortable.
Doula, Lactation Consultant, Massage Therapist, Childbirth Educator, and Human and Microbial Biologist
I am a Birth Doula and specialize in supporting mothers in their choices in birth: I attend all types of childbirth: Vaginal Births, VBACs, and Family Centered Cesareans. I will be at your birth whether you choose to birth in a Birth Center, in your Home, or at the Hospital. I will support you whether you want a natural and unmedicated birth, want an epidural, or you need to schedule a cesarean section. I also provide Lactation Consultation Services and believe in your ability to feed your baby! I am a Nationally Board Certified Massage Therapist and specialize in Prenatal, Postpartum, and Labor Support massage, as well as, Body Balance Restoration and Pain Reduction. I have a bachelor's degree in Human and Microbial Biology with a minor in Human Nutrition and Dietetics.
I believe in an anthropological approach to child rearing and incorporating that into our modern lives. What does this mean? I believe that our society has taken us away from what is natural and away from what is instinctual. When mothers and families are allowed and encouraged to trust their instincts and do what feels right, we have happier healthier and calmer children. Basically, I'm an attachment parenting advocate. I also maintain a blog about evidence-based concepts around child birth, lactation, parenting, and education. I'm glad that you've found me and I look forward to meeting you!
Evidence Based Holistic Services! Happy and Connected Families!
Megan Dempsey is amazing. She gave us great support during our pregnancy and made our birth very special. She has a wide knowledge base and is really interested in helping her clients to have the best labor/delivery possible. Having a doula was the best decision we could have made. Prenatal massage was also really helpful and we’ve continued to have support as we breastfeed.
