Whether you are expecting, or have already arrived at the postpartum period, transitioning into parenthood with reliable information and the right support can make all the difference!
For pregnant folks: I provide continuous support through pregnancy, unmedicated and medicated birthing, cesarean section (planned and emergency) and homebirth.
For new parents: I provide support, at any point, from immediate to extended postpartum, through nourishment, sleep support, in-home visits, herbal healing and holistic newborn/infant care.
“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.”
Working with Valencia during my pregnancy, birth and postpartum time was essential to our positive, birthing experience. Prior to delivery she guided us, reassured us and provided my partner and I with a sense of compassion and stability." (Menly and Patrick, Brooklyn, NY)
