Herbal Wellness Consultations and Referrals. Please inquire for individual consultations or to ask about a sliding scale herbal CSA from my garden. For years I've been deeply rooted in gardening, farming, soil chemistry(formal studies), an indigenous community permaculture, and plants and have always offered my herbs, teas, ointments, salves, tinctures, and plant medicines as gifts as part of my practice and healing my family loved ones and clients but am evolving and may offer more in bulk or individual sale for those interested and not a current Alexandria Midwife client.

Free Birth Circle, open to all! Or contact me for further interest Click to see Facebook info for next birth circle

"Birth Circle is a community of folks sharing stories, comparing notes, exchanging ideas, weighing options, getting together.  Getting together.  That is the foundation supporting all the others.

When they come together, they share stories.  The sorts of stories you’re not likely to hear anywhere else.    Birth stories.

And no story is the same. They share tales of natural birth, medicated birth, homebirth, hospital birth, and Cesarean birth.  Some stories make you smile, warm your heart.  Others make you cry, gripping you." We make sure it is a safe space. 

Monthly Workshops, similarly laid back as The Alexandria Birth Circle, the workshops are hosted by The District Doulas and are free to Alexandria Midwife's clients or $75 as a drop-in fee offer previous clients birth stories and wisdom and rotate topics.

Comprehensive childbirth education classes having been an ALACE and CAPPA certified childbirth educator. We have many amazing resources (and more specifically classes with other expecting parents to connect with) but I still receive inquiries about one-on-one childbirth education for new parents and refresher courses for expecting parents who have already participated in childbirth classes in the past. Just ask. I recommend a Hypnobirthing Class: dcyhpnobirthing.com or see resource list for more instructors.
