Welcome to Expecting New Life!
My doula work is thriving in Tennessee and I am thrilled to be serving women in Nashville, Clarksville and beyond. My location offers me the unique opportunity to work in two metropolitan areas and serve a large population of women.
learned that although Nashville has a large selection of birth doulas,
there have been only a few serving Clarksville and Fort Campbell until
recently, so please know that I am now available to work with you,
whether you are giving birth at home, in a local hospital or even
traveling to Nashville (as many of my Clarksville clients frequently
do). Go to the Contact Me page to send me a message or learn other ways to reach me.
REGISTER HERE for the Epidural Labor Positions class
SATURDAY, APRIL 4, 2015
Bump and Rump baby store, 2089 Wilma Rudolph Blvd, Clarksville, TN
$20/person in advance, $25 at the door
Planning to get an epidural? That doesn't mean you have to lay on your back for the rest of your labor. Come learn positions for both labor and pushing that are safe and productive when you are stuck in the bed. (And they work if you're not numb, too!)
PRENATAL BELLY HENNA: A unique way to celebrate the beauty of the pregnant form is through the art of temporary henna tattoos. Henna is a natural plant-based pigment that is made into a paste and applied to the skin, which then leaves a temporary stain on the skin after it dries. The designs can be simple or symbolic - the choice is yours. Beautiful to have done prior to a maternity photo session, this would be a fun addition to a baby shower or Mother Blessing / Blessingway Ceremony, too.
CLARKSVILLE BIRTH COMMUNITY: Have you joined the Clarksville Birth Community yet? Over 1,000 women have become members since December 2011! There is always a lively discussion going on. It's a private group where you can ask questions and get answers from professionals and fellow moms alike, share your experiences, learn something new, and be treated with respect. Join our group on Facebook to stay current and participate in ongoing conversations.
ESSENTIAL OILS: What's the big deal about essential oils? Wouldn't you rather use natural products to care for your family that support wellness instead of products that come with a long list of scary side effects? If you would like to host an event in your home, let me know! You can purchase Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils via my website. Contact me to learn about special offers and discounts. Go to this page to read more about essential oils and also join my group on Facebook.
