Virtual Birth and Wellness Services
During this time, ALL services are offered virtually. Please contact the owner, Maura Jo, for details.
As a wellness educator and perinatal professional, I will walk by your side as you prepare for and enter life transitions (pregnancy and birth, parenthood, college, change of career, becoming a doula, and so forth). I will be present with a spirit of caring and compassion. Whether you are interested in a birth class, doula services, wellness classes, fitness consultations, or mentoring/coaching for new birth professionals, I’ll provide support, education, and help you grow your self-advocacy skills as you prepare for and work through the next chapter of your journey. My goal is to support you and your family in achieving and maintaining health and wellness goals, through the childbearing year, and throughout all the phases of your life. Together, we'll access the information and resources you need to make informed decisions. To learn more about me and the services that I offer, please explore the website and get in touch today.

Professional Virtual Doula Services
I specialize in Homebirth and also love supporting LGBTQ+ families. I hold multiple certifications and extensive training to best support your family before,
during and after your birth.
Extra support after baby arrives can make for a smoother transition. Virtual services include Postpartum Planning for the birthing parent and care planning for your new little love.
Some lives are long, others are short. I'm here to support your birth, regardless.
Virtual bereavement doula support includes calls and support before, during and after.

Virtual Prenatal Visits For
During this stressful time, I’m available to you throughout your pregnancy to guide and support you with various packages of virtual visits. Practice sessions with relaxation, exercise and hypnosis will allow your pregnancy experience to be as calm and positive as possible.
This is a great "maintenance program" for those enrolled in my birth classes, as well as those who have already completed a class with another instructor and are looking to continue practicing and maybe pick up additional skills and techniques.
Doula and Birth Educator
This isn't for everyone!
What I started as the Connecticut Doula Tutoring Project, to support aspiring and practicing doulas as they complete certification, has grown into an 8 Week Application-Only Program. Offering support, networking opportunities and accountability, we build community as we achieve goals, increase professionalism, and raise awareness of birth/perinatal professionals in our state.

Virtual Reiki Sessions
And Reiki Workshops
The word REIKI (pronounced RAY-KEY) is two Japanese words. There are several translations, due to the nature of the Japanese language, but one would be REI meaning "Universal Source," KI meaning "Life Force Energy ." As a hands-on (or distance), spiritual healing method, it is a complement to medical care and a great way to increase our relaxation response.
Get in touch and set up a complementary phone consultation for Doula or Wellness Services, ask questions about our Workshops or just say, "Hi!" If you are inquiring about pregnancy, birth or postpartum services, be sure to include your Estimated Due Date. Thank you!
