Birth Doula - Lactation Counselor - Craniosacral Therapist

I am a DONA trained birth doula with over 4 years of experience serving over 200 families during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum time. I am also a Certified Lactation Educator Counselor through UC San Diego and a Craniosacral Therapist trained by Dr. Carol Phillips of Dynamic Body Balancing. 

 

I am continually inspired by birth and truly believe in the transformative process that happens when a child is welcomed Earthside.

 

I provide warm, non-judgemental and personalized support to families in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin.  

My Story

Birth is so incredibly empowering, moving and rewarding. It brings us to our inner animal self, to our knees and to tears but it also teaches us how incredible and miraculous our human bodies are. I believe every single birthing person has the right to feel that power through knowing that they made well educated decisions about their own birth.

 

That is why I became a doula. I believe in inner strength and I believe motherhood/parenthood.

I am here to be an emotional and physical support for any family that wishes or needs that. ​

I live in St. Paul, occupied Dakota territories, with my endlessly entertaining 4 year old and my amazing partner of 13 years. We have 2 dogs and a bunny. Most days, if not with clients, getting into many adventures around town with my family and friends. I fully appreciate a meaningful conversation, the company of authentic people and a good cup of coffee.

Birth Services

Prenatal Visits 

During prenatal visits we will discuss your birth preferences, options and any childbirth related questions you may have. I will also go over birthing time comfort measures with you.

I will visit you at least once in the postpartum period to answer any questions you may have about your birth and help you with any postpartum issues that may come up.

Additional Services

Breastfeeding Class - $120

I offer a comprehensive Breastfeeding Class taught in your home that covers everything needed to prepare you for your lactating journey.

 

Lactation Support - $60 - $90

Breastfeeding/feeding challenges may come up. I provide in home/birthing place lactation/feeding support within the scope of a Lactation Counselor. 

Craniosacral Therapy - $75 - $100

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.

Using a soft touch practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is beneficial during pregnancy and birth to help balance the body and for infants to aid with optimal breastfeeding and development. 

I offer in home and in office CST appointments for adults, infants and children. 

Combined Lactation/Craniosacral Therapy - $105 - $150

"Landon was an indispensable part of our first baby's birth and the days before and after it. She had all of the qualities we were looking for in a doula: calm, caring, resourceful and an expert in her field. She instilled confidence in us as first-time parents and did a terrific job of walking the fine line between being *there* and present for us during the birth without being overbearing. I would unequivocally recommend Landon to friends, family & anyone else interested in a doula, particularly (but not limited to) new parents hoping to have a natural birth. We plan on being repeat customers."
