The placenta is considered a powerful and sacred medicine – a ‘full of life force’ organ that should be consumed to support healing after birth. Our preparation used, is Inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine and follows the preparation of lightly steaming the placenta before dehydration. Organic ingredients are steamed together with the placenta to help aid in digestion, and promote warming for the mother/birth parent.

What clients are saying:
Savannah was EXCELLENT as my doula. She really made sure all of needs were met! I felt much more comfortable that I knew she was there. She even rubbed my feet and because they sprung on me that I was getting induced that day, I hadn’t had a chance to get a pedicure 😳😳. And when that first contraction hit, I damn near took her hand clear off and she didn’t even flinch. I musta ran her to get me water and ice chips over a thousand times. Thank you for everything.
I was browsing for a Doula to support me while pregnant with my first child. I came across Savannah and did a virtual consolation with her. During our first meet and greet she made me feel comfortable.
Savannah was able to answer all my questions being a first time mom and not knowing what to expect.
I immediately made a decision to hire her. She came to my home a few times prior to me giving birth to explain the process and to show me birthing techniques. She also provided me with virtual birthing classes that were helpful during the pandemic.
On the day I went into labor, I contacted Savannah in the morning to inform her that I went into labor. She immediately met me at the hospital and was by my side for a long lengthy labor and delivery. Savannah made me feel comfortable and helped my ease my anxiety. She never left my side and was an amazing support person. I highly recommend her services she is well worth it! I would definitely hire her again for my next pregnancy!
Before I was ever pregnant I knew that I wanted a Doula. Savannah has over exceeded what I thought that would be for me during my pregnancy. She was very knowledgeable on every stage of pregnancy and labor and she made sure to prepare me prior. I could always tell that I was a priority because any time I reached out, she was there to answer my questions even if I asked the same few over and over. When it came to labor she was very attentive and never left my side. She made sure I was comfortable and gave massages and held my hand through all my contractions as much as I needed. While I did have the support of my boyfriend, it was great that she knew different techniques to help me as well. We even used a peanut ball which resulted in a faster natural dilation. At some point I wondered how she worked a full-time job, sat on the uncomfortable chair that the hospital provided, never got tired, or complained to be hungry. She stayed with me almost 24 hours waiting on the arrival of my son. In my opinion, a doula is completely necessary for every pregnancy. My pregnancy and labor went smooth and she made sure that I was mentally prepared for sure which is how I got through it. I am forever grateful for this experience with my Doula. I’ll see her again for my next pregnancy!
