Loving Care for New Parents

Your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum needs are unique. They should be attended to with mindfulness, flexibility, wisdom, and respect.

I have provided nurturing physical, social, and emotional support to families for the last three decades. My thirty year's education and experience in the fields of perinatal care & education, midwifery, anthropology and philosophy make me uniquely qualified to attend to your postpartum needs.

I can help you cope with the changes and challenges that pregnancy brings, prepare for parenthood, and explore the kind of birth you want. After your baby is born, I can take care of you while you learn to take care of your baby.



“Esther’s care was a godsend, from the prenatal visits right through the postpartum period. It did more than just nurture me as a new mother — I think it set the tone for us as a  reconfigured family. Our baby daughter’s had  a great beginning, and so have we.”

– Julie, new mother


“Esther kept me and my husband focused and sane from start to finish. She knew when to sit back and let us do our thing, and when we needed guidance or hands-on help. She taught me how to breastfeed and care for my baby. She took care of everything when we got home, so we could rest and get to know our new daughter. Even my mom kept saying how lucky we were to have her.”

– Doris, new mother


"When Esther didn’t hesitate to wipe my wife’s butt, I thought to myself, this is worth every penny."

- Mike, second-time dad
