Compassionate care for Palm Beach parents and babies
plus equipment rentals and auxiliary services for birthing families
Caring for families during the childbirth rite of passage is my passion and expertise.
Wherever and however you want to birth, it is my great joy to see you claim ownership over your journey. Honoring and supporting your needs, desires, values, and emotions, as well as the needs and desires of your baby, are my priority.
I’ve been through this journey a few times myself, and have been there for other mothers’ journeys since 2015.
Birth Pool & Birth Stool Rentals
Your medical team will have all the tools to safeguard your and your baby’s medical needs, and with the AquaDoula tub and BirthRite stool, you add in the tools for comfort and empowerment.
Hydrotherapy with the AquaDoula tub can make all the difference for enabling a drug-free labor for those who prefer natural birth. This pool distinguishes itself from the rest of the market by having a built in temperature maintenance system, sturdy non-inflatable walls, as well as a larger area for increased mobility or for your partner to join you.
Mothers offered upright positions for second stage of labor, as with the BirthRite birth seat, are shown in studies to have greater satisfaction with their birth. Included in the BirthRite bundle is a kneeling pad for more comfortable pushing from hands and knees, plus a specially designed mirror for helping parents view their progress during birth.
Perinatal, Postpartum, Breastfeeding & Adoption Support
Parents and babies need a continuum of support extending before and after the birth.
If you’re having a challenges or complications during pregnancy or in your the postpartum months, or just want to take precautions to prevent challenges and complications, don’t hesitate to reach out to trustworthy, neutral professionals who can offer the guidance, support, and resources that can help you both survive and thrive in this season of life.
Some auxilliary services I offer to families around the time of birth include Energy Kinesiology, baby wearing education, placenta encapsulation, and breastfeeding support for gestational as well as adoptive parents.
Thank you to my amazing doula Christine Frackelton
— Andralia F.
Christine is one of the most caring people I know. She goes above and beyond
— Rob F.
Christine was recommended to me by a friend of mine who has worked with her. She is very professional and extremely sweet. She will come to your house and encapsulate the placenta and she does it in two days. The reason why I chose Christine was because of how diligent and clean she is about the whole process. I highly reccomend her. Thank you!
