• From Tracy: A wonderful collection of birth stories from California midwife Peggy Vincent.  Sometimes we just need to read about the potential of the power and beauty of birth to appreciate all that it entails.

    Due to requests for the course and the fact that I didn't have it scheduled until summer 2020, I have decided to do a limited spaces run in March for those families interested.  I am limiting spaces because I need to focus on developing the next course.  I hope this fills the gap that is there right now and I look forward to meeting the families that join this month :) This 4-week email course is for those who are currently struggling with sleep or who may just want to jump the gun and understand more about the sleep process, the expectations we can have, how to navigate being responsive with self-care, and how to make gentle changes when necessary.  The course includes the emails, some optional homework, and a virtual 30-minute "office hour"  via Zoom or email.  See below for more details on the four units. Please ensure the email you provide during checkout is the one you want to use for the course.

    Consultations can be made on a wide array of issues.  I have worked with families on sleep, discipline, school/daycare, social and emotional development, welcoming siblings, divorce, and more.  I take a very individualized approach which allows me to take your situation into account with any recommendations I may have. One-time consultations can be done via Skype, phone, or email and cover a broad range of issues and are perfect for most topics.  The consultation includes:
    • the 75-minute session via Skype or phone (or in-depth emails to gather the same information)
    • a summary of the plan discussed, and
    • 2 weeks of email follow-up  (you can select to purchase a longer follow-up time of an additional 2 weeks)
    If you are looking for a sleep package, I offer that as well to allow for more follow-up which is often necessary when making changes with sleep.  In this package (which you can select as an add-on when purchasing), you receive:
    • the initial 75 min consultation
    • a written sleep plan after the call
    • two 30-minute follow-up calls (to be done within 6 weeks of the initial consultation), and
    • WhatsApp or email follow-up for up to two weeks after the final call
    Once you purchase individual help, a link for the scheduler will be displayed in the purchase note.  Please use that link to book your initial appointment. Note that if you are a repeat client, please do not book here, but email me for your direct link.

    Most parents are not prepared for raising a high-needs or orchid child and even less prepared for how harsh our culture can be for these sensitive children.  Contrary to modern advice to toughen up our kids to face the harsh world, these children require a much more gentle and supportive hand if they are to thrive, just as the orchid requires extensive care to grow into the beautiful flower it is.  Although orchid children are at higher risk for some negative outcomes, this is tempered by the fact that when they are given the right environment and the right support, they actually do better than those children who are more resilient at the start.  The goal for this 4-week course is to help you create that environment and provide that support in a culture that is working against you.  As always, the course comes with office hours to help individualize the information to your child and situation.  For more details, you can read the longer description below.
