Preserve a permanent memory of your beautiful, pregnant form! I bring all the materials and help you (and your partner/children if desired) create a custom-molded plaster cast of your belly (and sometimes torso). Decorate it yourself or I can create a unique design for you. Basic Casting (no finishing): $100. Finishing Services: $75 - $200 depending on what is desired. Contact me to plan a time for your cast.
I work with the client to design a ceremony honoring them as a new (or new again) parent. This ceremony can stand alone or be part of a more traditional baby shower, and is sensitive to each family's personal, cultural, and religious traditions. It's also juicy - appealing to all the senses through food, scent, touch, music, and words. $250. Contact me to set a date.
In addition to my background as a doula, I am also a Unitarian Universalist religious educator. I offer individualized baby or child naming ceremonies or dedications. My focus is on the dedication of the child's family and friends to providing a community of spiritual support as they grow, and celebrating the special person this child is and will become. Each ritual incorporates the spiritual values of the family for a one-of-a-kind occasion. Basic fee is $175 for a planning meeting, phone/email/text preparation, and the ceremony itself. Contact me for more information!
I am available to give a presentation to your parenting, professional, religious, or other group on a variety of topics related to pregnancy, birth, and parenting. Generally, one hour or shorter presentations in the Philadelphia area are free! Longer presentations or workshops can be arranged for reasonable fees. Contact me for more information!
