Love Offering
Sometimes families, loved ones or friends wish to ‘pay it forward’ to other families in need. In these cases, I accept gifts in honor or in memory of loved ones. These love offerings make it possible for me to continue to offer bereavement services at no cost to the families in need.
If you wish to contribute to this special service I am thankful to be able to offer and will be happy to pay it forward to the ones in need. Please contact me at SereneRelaxation1@gmail.com
All funds collected go straight to covering the costs of serving families going through a pregnancy loss.
Thank you in advance for your care for these deserving families.

Bereavement Doula Support

When should I contact a Birth and Bereavement Doula?
Ideally, as soon as a loss is identified, a Birth and Bereavement Doula should be contacted.  This allows for maximum support in decision-making. However, there is not really a time that is too late, even if you have already delivered your baby
 
Cost:
 I am here to serve your family at a discounted rate of $300 during these trying days. Please contact us any time, day or night, to access this doula service.
 
There are many times, pregnancy will progress normally and a healthy mother and baby will be a end result. There are some times, however, when a child is lost through miscarriage or born sleeping. There are also times during pregnancy when parents may learn their child has a condition that is incompatible with life, these parents don’t expect that their precious one will survive for long after being born.
When these difficult situations occur, the grieving parents require the most compassionate guidance available to walk them through, help guide them in a way that their loved one can be remembered a life time, and have a peaceful beginning and farewell. As a Bereavement Doula, I come to the hospital or home to support parents and their families and will continue to work with them for weeks and months with postpartum doula services following their loss.
