Makawee is Sioux for mothering, generous, and earth-maiden. Mother, grandma, older sis, and dear friend these are the inspirations and care I want to bring and share with you on your birth journey.
For the past 10 years, this has been my goal helping mothers expand their birthing heaven. Helping you enjoy the pleasures of motherhood is my sincere wish. There is so much to learn, to experience, and to enjoy from conception and birthing to baby-caring and baby-wearing. In all these magical times, your enjoyment is my priority.
As a Makawee, I will help you with birth coaching, from conception to postpartum and breastfeeding. You will learn good nutrition, and well find a care provider or midwife that works with your desires, philosophy, and finances. You will learn all the ways your baby will depend on you for their needs and how it will affect their health for the rest of their lives.
When you call, we can begin to discuss this wonderful time for you and how we can best work together. Of course, after a free meeting or two, when we begin truly planning the details and sign an agreement, I have some basic fees.
Normally, you may want one or two pre-birth sessions in your home, and this is included in the fee for attending your birth for $450. This prenatal and postpartum support normally lasts a few hours. If you need more time, there is a $15/hour fee.
Postpartum work is available at a day rate as well if you need ongoing care and support after your baby arrives. I will work with your familys needs to ensure you are well taken care of.
When you choose me as your doula, youll have free phone consultations, and of course, there will be a backup doula in case of emergency.
