The Women's Hut
I am not here to empower you-- I am here to help you see the path to your own empowerment, and to share with you the tools that you may need. But You must take the first step. I cannot carry the pack up the mountain, I cannot take the journey for you. I will guard the Gate for you, but you must cross the threshold on your own.
I am not here to advocate for you during your hospital birth-- that is not my place (ethically or legally), that is however in your power and is the role of your partner (if you have one). I am here to show you that you have options, and that you can advocate for yourself and your baby. You have rights, you have options, you have Informed Consent, and you can say yes or no to anything.
I am not here to make your birth turn out any which way-- it is not my duty to determine the destiny of another human being. It is my duty to be Present, to Witness, and to Support you in any choices you may (or may not) make regardless of my own beliefs or standings regarding them. Every woman/mother's journey is different, and each transformation looks different for every woman/mother. It is not my place to say how that will look, it is up to You to determine your own fate.

Herbal Yoni Sauna
We Now offer yoni sauna sessions at your location in addition to selling Yoni Sauna Self-Care Kits for doing vaginal steams in the comfort of your own home.
Pamper your yoni + womb with nourishing herbs and warm moisture while receiving Kundalini Reiki during your treatment session.
do you suffer from irregular cycles, painful menstruation, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, infertility, or painful intercourse? when you bleed, is it often dark, brownish, or clotty? or are you a postpartum mother who needs some help in healing vaginal tissues after the rigors of births?
then a yoni sauna (herbal vaginal steam) may help you.
Enjoy a relaxing Yoni Sauna session in the comfort of your home. An herbal blend is custom made based on your personal needs, whether you are seeking General Womb Wellness or support for a particular condition. The herbs are steeped in boiling water, and then the pot of steaming herbs is placed underneath a seat which you will sit upon, exposing your yoni to the nourishing herbal essence. You are encouraged to wear warm socks and shoes during your session, and will be wrapped in blankets to contain both the steam and the heat which promotes womb wellness. A session lasts about 30-60 minutes and includes a Tea Ceremony (60-min session), Kundalini Reiki, and a Guided Meditation.
Do you suffer from irregular menstrual cycles, extremely short or long cycles, PCOS, Endometriosis, Dysmennhorea (Painful Menstruation), PMS, Fibroids, Hormone Imbalances, Vaginal Flora Imbalances, muliple miscarriages, or other womb-related ailments?
Have you been struggling with fertility, are considering Alternative Fertility Interventions such as IVF, or are you just considering trying to conceive and want to be as prepared and healthy in mind-body-spirit as possible?
Are you pregnant and wanting to have a healthy pregnancy to prepare for as easy a birth as possible and healthy baby, or are you perhaps already struggling with some prenatal issues and want to approach them holistically? Are you wanting a speedy postpartum recovery, help getting back to a pre-baby body, or maintaining great-quality breastmilk?
holistic women's wellness coaching
We offer Holistic, Tailored, One-on-One Support Coaching for obtaining menstrual and reproductive health. Coaching support can be for one month, three months, or 6 months and can be combined with other services for Platinum Packages.
After contacting me with a description of what you're seeking and any concerns you may have presently, I will send you a Health Intake to fill out and return via E-mail. Once I review it we will then schedule a consultation via Skype or Phone, unless you are local and then we can arrange to meet in-person. This Breakthrough Session lasts anywhere from 30-60 minutes generally and we will talk in more depth about your personal experiences and needs, go over your health intake, as well as my initial thoughts regarding your needs.
After the consult, you are free to decide whether or not you would like to move forward with one-on-one coaching, and if so, how you want to structure the coaching (only one month or month-to-month, or in 3-6 month increments). I will provide suggestions specific to your personal needs which may include regular Yoni Saunas (vaginal herbal steams), herbal and homeopathic remedies, dietary and lifestyle changes, trauma resolution work, bodywork and energywork, and others.
Coaching Packages Include: Breakthrough Session, tailored health regiment and adjustments if needed, one-on-one coaching sessions, accountability check-ins, E-mail and phone support, and may include in-person healing services. This is about addressing your needs and meeting you where you're at, seeking a holistic route to gain the goals you're seeking, and you will be 100% involved in your own care and health! **Please Note: My Wellness Coaching Services are provided through a Private Members Association. Work together requires a small fee to join the PMA which is included in the cost of the Service.

Full Spectrum Reproductive Support
Alternative Birth Control & Family Planning
Many don't realize that there are in fact natural, or otherwise 'alternative', options to what we think of as "birth control".
These include: Conscious Contraception, Lunaception, Fertility Awareness Method (FAM), and Herbal Contraceptives (and combinations of them, along with the use of things such as fertility microscopes and the Pull-Out Method-- which when done properly, can be as effective as the Pill!).
Do you struggle with conventional, hormone-based birth control (or even conventional non-hormone methods such as the copper IUD), or are you just wanting to move towards natural ways of preventing pregnancy while becoming more in-tune and in-touch with your body, cycles, and reproductive wellbeing?
I currently offer mentoring in regards to coming off of hormonal birth control, alternative birth control, and tuning into your body-awareness and cycles. I also have an Alternative Birth Control online class and one-day workshop on the books to be offered in early 2017.
You can purchase my Lunaception E-Course, which comes with a month of one-on-one support; Contact me about Alternative Birth Control Mentoring; or Sign Up for my newsletter to be alerted when the online class and/or workshop will be available below.
Autonomous Conception, Pregnancy & Birth Support
It is my Soul's Purpose to help others to rediscover and reclaim Conscious, Undisturbed, Self-Directed, Autonomous Childbearing for themselves, their babies, and their families no matter where they plan to give birth or with who, if anyone, in attendance.
In my years of studying natural childbearing, midwifery, and alternative women's wellness I have experienced and midwifed myself and others mind-body-spirit through multiple life events/initiations-- infant loss, miscarriage, hospital births, conscious pregnancy releases at home, and my autonomous pregnancy and freebirth of my daughter.
Do you wish to consciously, healthily conceive a child? do you long for a birth experience that is self-directed, autonomous, and undisturbed? Are you birthing in a hospital and want to learn how to take control of your experience and have the support of a woman who knows childbirth? are you birthing at home with a midwife and want to make sure your birth stays undisturbed? Or are you even curious about or considering a freebirth or unassisted birth and are seeking mentoring?
In coming full-circle in my own work and watching the direction that modern midwifery and doula support is taking (not for the better), I decided to begin offering this more ancient, primal, and women-focused mentorship and sisterly support to my fellow womb-carriers and mothers. Whether you seek a guide to conscious conception, a support companion/doula for a loss, a hospital or home birth, or a mentor for preparing for a self-directed pregnancy and birth / Freebirth, I stand before you with open hands, a mind full of knowledge to share, and myself as Servant, Guide, and Witness for your Transformation-- however that looks for you. However, I am not here to ensure any given outcome-- no one, whether doctor or midwife, can guarantee that, no matter what they may claim.
I am here to walk alongside you as you carry the pack up the mountain, to offer encouragement and advice, but ultimately you must make the journey yourself to reclaim your sovereignty and bring your child earthside from across the veil, to claim the mantle of Mother for yourself. I am simply the Gatekeeper, the Witness, the Wise Woman, the Sister-Mother there to wipe your brow and feed you nourishing broths and whisper charms of strength in your ear.
**Please Note: My Conscious Conception + Autonomous Pregnancy & Birth Support / Childbirth Consulting / Freebirth Mentoring services are provided through a Private Members Association. Work together requires a small fee to join the PMA which is included in the cost of the Service.

"Mother Roasting" is the term that refers to an array of traditional and modern practices that focus on nurturing and nourishing
the mother and mother-baby diad in the postpartum period (the "fourth trimester").
the postpartum is one of the most neglected times in regards to supporting women and mothers through the childbearing years. we are of the belief that when mothers are unsupported and mal-nourished (however she is best nourished) in the weeks immediately following birth, that this is where a multitude of postpartum maladies arise from-- including postpartum depression and failed breastfeeding among others.
Postpartum Support & Mother Roasting Services
Pregnancy Release Companion Services
I acknowledge that pregnancy does not always result in a full-term or live birth, whether intended or unintended. I honor the various pregnancy outcomes that we find ourselves-- as womb-carriers, as mothers-- experiencing in our lives. Whether you currently are, or have experienced, a miscarriage or late-term loss, or have found yourself pregnant and do not wish to be, I am here to support you as a Pregnancy Release Companion.
Pregnancy Release is a term I coined in 2014 to be an inclusive term without stigma, shame, or judgement referencing alternative pregnancy outcomes such as terminations (mainstream and alternative) and unintended losses. I have created the title Pregnancy Release Companion to represent my between-the-worlds role as combination of doula, monitrice, and care provider for those experiencing Pregnancy Releases.
If you are experiencing, or have experienced, an unintended loss, I can support you through holistic mental/emotional/spiritual/physical healing and recovery, home funeral planning (where applicable), and trauma resolution. I also provide trauma resolution for those who have experienced traumatic or otherwise unfulfilling termination experiences in the past.
If you are pregnant and do not wish to be, or are uncertain, I am available to consult with you from a place of non-bias and non-judgement on what all of your options are, from government support for single moms to adoption to clinical and home-termination methods (including local availability or other means of access, benefits and risks of each method, etc.).
I am also available as a support companion during your pregnancy release. This could be long-distance support before, during, and after (for 6 weeks postpartum) or in-person support if you are in Coastal/Eastern North Carolina also before, during, and after. In-person support may include driving you to and from a clinic with postpartum observation at your home, or an at-home procedure attendance and includes doula-like support as well as monitrice-like support such as taking vitals and assessing blood loss.
I feel that post-release/Postpartum care is vital and a need that is not being met. I will be in contact with you either by phone or in-person, depending, 3-4 times in the first week, and 2-3 times each week thereafter for a full 6 week postpartum period. During this time your wellbeing will be monitored/checked in on, holistic suggestions/services for healing and recovery will be offered, space for emotional and spiritual processing will be provided (ceremony can be facilitated if desired), and family planning options can be discussed if you wish. **Please Note: My Pregnancy Release Companion Services are provided through a Private Members Association. Work together requires a small fee to join the PMA which is included in the cost of the Service.
If you are in need financially, please reach out to discuss your situation. Please contact me using the Options Counseling button below to learn more about your pregnancy options and/or request Pregnancy Release Companion services.
If you are interested in one-on-one training or upcoming workshops to become a Pregnancy Release Companion, please e-mail me for more information using the training button.
