*Doula Services, Pre/Postnatal Yoga Class, and Reiki Available in a Virtual Setting.
- Holistic Fertility Doula– A holistic fertility doula (HFD) supports a woman during her preconception journey to help prepare her body for pregnancy. An HFD is trained to look at varying factors that may be prohibiting conception and make recommendations in specific areas to enhance fertility. An HFD can provide support to women using “alternative” therapies, assisted reproductive technology (ART), or to those just beginning the journey. Informational support, nutritional support, unlimited email and text support, and access to fertility resources are provided. An HFD empowers the woman to make decisions that are best for her in her exploration of fertility options.
There is a 3-month minimum with six 60-min sessions at WOWD or online, via Zoom. The Client is responsible to provide updates regarding progress. The HFD is not responsible for pregnancy outcomes. If Client becomes pregnant, the remainder of the balance can be applied to other prenatal classes and services.
- Reiki-promotes healing (mind, body, spirit) and can help to create calm and balance during the fertility, pregnancy, and/or postpartum journey. Thai foot massage releases stagnant energy and creates a deep sense of calm and relaxation (should not be practiced during pregnancy).
- Thai Foot Massage-can be used as stand-alone practice or as a complement to reiki as well as yoga. They help to strengthen, heal and empower Mamas at multiple levels and layers.
- Pre/Postnatal Yoga- Designed to support you in each trimester and prepare you for childbirth. We address some of the challenges you may face in body, mind and spirit, during this transformational time. Sequences are designed to empower you to embrace your present as you tap into your strengths and harness your power. Yoga also helps you to develop deep awareness about yourself–body, mind and spirit, which is necessary to promote maternal health. Postnatal yoga practiceis sequenced to honor and respect the postpartum body, mind and spirit. The practice allows space to gain new awareness of the transformed body after carrying life while (re)building tone and strength in various parts of the body.
The Bodywork Rx
Thai foot massage uses the ancient art of Thai reflexology to provide an enjoyable, relaxing, and rejuvenating experience. It is based on the belief that there are zones and reflex areas in the feet which correspond to the systems of the body. Thai foot massage techniques focus on the feet, lower legs and knees to release blocked energy, detoxify and purify the body.
Massage cream, lotion or oil is used. The thumbs, knuckles, palms or reflexology stick may be used to apply pressure. The massage may be performed on a massage table, Thai mat, yoga mat, or recliner like chairs.
Reported benefits of Thai foot massage include: improved circulation; improved lymphatic drainage; improved immune function; reduced stiffness; accelerated healing, stress relief; improved sleep; mood elevation; improved concentration and clarity of mind; feelings of tranquility, calmness, and well-being; and restoration of balance.
Reiki – The Energetic Rx
Reiki is a non-invasive Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation. The healing energy balances your energy, removes energetic blockages, cleanses the body of toxins, releases stress, and promotes your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Reiki goes wherever it is needed in the body, subtle body, emotions and spirit.
Some reported benefits/experiences include reduction in physical pain and discomfort, reduction in anxiety, increase in energy, personal growth and transformation, improved intuition, increased attention, clarity and confidence.
Energy healing is not a substitute for medical care, but can support wellness physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

The Pharmacist Rx
If you are on medication for diagnoses like diabetes, hypertension, and/or high cholesterol, we’ll be offering opportunities to consult with a pharmacist about your medications to help you better understand them and how they work. The pharmacist can even provide suggestions that you can share and discuss with your medical provider. We believe that some medicines are intended to be a temporary crutch while you make some adjustments in the way in which you care for yourself. Consider contacting us to discuss your medications with a registered pharmacist in a personal or virtual setting.
