We’ve prepared capsules for over 500 happy clients. They commonly report increased energy, balanced hormones, and a happier mood. Easy to arrange; easy to take!
We surpass food-safety and OSHA requirements for safe handling of placenta. If you have any concerns about rumors or negative media reports, check out this this article or contact us. Please read on for more about these capsules that help you thrive in the postpartum.
This hands-on information is not covered in any other local prenatal classes! Tips, tales and practical stuff to help you feel more prepared for labour.
“This was by far the most useful class we took! It helped us so much in labour with the actual hands-on practise and learning what some of our options are!” (C & S, 2017).

Your dedication, love and passion shines through you as a person and as a doula. Your professionalism, dedication, knowledge and wisdom while providing support (physical and emotional) was and is paramount for our family. You were such a positive and wonderful part of the love and strength of our daughter’s birth. You changed our views of what a birth could and can be for the better; you strengthened our bond at home and in the delivery room. As I sit here and admire my daughter and think of her birth I think of you. As a women and as a mother I commend you. I am grateful to the doula community and to you.
After the hospital tour and both of your classes (prenatal-in-a-day and the couples’ class), we feel totally at ease and prepared now to handle a natural birth. Actually looking quite forward to it!
