Amber’s approach to postpartum care is heart-centered, stemming from the life altering experience of her own birth as a mother. She knows that the birth of a parent can be just as intense as childbirth, whether it’s the first baby or the third, and understands that it is essential to continue feeling safe, supported, and encouraged during this extension of labor. Stress and overwhelm are not conducive to bonding, learning, healing, and hormonal balance - all key elements for becoming the best parents we can be. Amber’s experiences as a mother and a doula have taught her that when birthing people are fully supported, they open the window to an incredible opportunity to thrive, to transform, and fully tap into their own innate wisdom. Amber gently creates a necessary container for deep renewal and peace, where a new parents’ unexpected emotions are normalized, change is welcomed, challenges are overcome, and transitions are eased. Amber is a seasoned Postpartum Doula, trained through Birth Arts International, a Certified Breastfeeding Counselor, Newborn Mothers Postpartum Professional, Newborn Care Specialist, and Reiki II Practitioner. She is trained in Bengkung Belly Binding, is currently a student of traditional herbalism, and utilizes her background in dance and the arts to help her clients reconnect to their bodies and spirits after birth. Using evidence-based information, world healing traditions, and radical compassion as the foundations for her calm and grounded caregiving, Amber acts as both a collaborator and guide. She focuses on helping her clients to discover the unique path that will bring them the most confidence and joy in parenting, and beyond. Adding photography to her offering in such a safe and intimate space ensures that the vital moments of this transformational period will be captured without intrusion or stress, in the most authentic way possible.

Reiki Individual Session

1 hour session of Reiki at the comfort of your home The word Reiki comes from the Japanese words (Rei) which means “universal life”, and (Ki) which means “energy”. Reiki is a Japanese system of healing in which the practitioner will place her hands on or just off the body (clients are fully clothed) with the intent to clear stagnant energy, ultimately resulting in free flowing Ki. When a person’s Ki is free flowing and strong, their body and mind are in a positive state of health. When the energy becomes weak or blocked it often leads to symptoms of physical and emotional imbalance. When your body is balanced, your own self-healing mechanisms function at their very best. Reiki is a very simple process, but usually produces quite profound results. The beauty of Reiki is that it is non invasive and is administered in a very gentle manner. There are no known contra-indications for Reiki, and it compliments other medical treatments. Reiki is safe and extremely beneficial for all stages of pregnancy and postpartum, and for people of all ages, including infants. Some benefits of Reiki which are essential for the new mother and baby dyad are improved sleep, deep relaxation, pain relief, and a deep sense of peace, clarity, and joy.

In my session with Amber, she guided me to a place where I was able to find some stillness within myself. With the constant commotion that comes with being a new Dad, this served as a much needed recalibration of my nervous system.
