ROCK YOUR MIDWIFERY OR DOULA PRACTICE!

This program is for you, if you are a doula, or midwife eager to start your own homebirth practice. It is also for you if you have an existing practice, but you feel unorganized, and confused on the business management, and how to grow further.

Or maybe you’ve had a practice in the hospital or birth center but want to go out on your own and have no idea how to get the business started because you’ve always worked for someone else. This program is perfect for you and will shave YEARS off of your learning curve.

This is especially supportive if you want to start a home birth midwifery practice. Not only will I teach you the ins and outs of the practice, how to deal with insurance, how to get the paperwork organized, but also I'll teach you how to grow your practice (I had a full practice within a year and often a wait list of clients). I'll give you my social media secrets, and you will learn how to stand out from the others. I'll share with you what prospective clients look for in seeking support, and will give you tools to lead talks and do outreach.

One of the most important things I will mentor you on is how to create personal balance, establish boundaries, prevent burn-out, reduce stress, stay healthy and live in joy. In our work together you will set up practices for yourself. My desire is to help you become the go-to midwife or doula that everyone wants to work with in your area. I know what it takes - I've done it for myself!

This Program Includes:

- 10 hourly private consultations with me - these usually involve questions and answers about the documents and customizing it for your practice. We can also cover marketing strategies and social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and how to do outreach for business referrals.

- Weekly emails for quick questions that come up in between our calls.

- My Ultimate Birth Resource Rolodex (favorite books, movies and supplies for you to give clients to help them ROCK their birth, what ever setting they are in)

- Lifetime access to my online holistic Love Your Birth course so you can help mommas as I have done in my practice for over 20 years. The course takes mommas from pregnancy through birth and postpartum, with the goal to achieve optimal health of mind/body/heart and spirit,  and also LOVE their experience, no matter how it unfolds. You will learn ways to empower your clients and help them find their joy, get excited, and look forward to giving birth, and be in ecstasy with their experience, rather than simply surviving it.

“You are one of the most amazing women I know on top of being excellent at what you do. On a professional level, you are very knowledgeable on women’s health topics and childbirth and you go above and beyond with your clients. As a professional, you have inspired me to pour out everything for my patients and that being a midwife is not only being knowledgeable in your area of expertise, but having the compassion to listen and respect what my patients’ wants and needs. You strive for excellence in all areas of your life and openly practice what you preach for health promotion and wellness. You are easy to talk to and have an open ear. I hope to be half the nurse you are!!”
