What's New? Kansas City Family Birth Spring/Summer Recap 2016


This year has brought about many changes for our team! As we look forward towards the end of 2016, we thought we'd recap all the new things that have happened. Don't worry, we're not done yet.

Abi Wagner and Shannon Giles

In the spring we added Abi and Shannon who both come to us as birth doulas. Abi is also a trained Bereavement Doula, Postpartum Doula, and Antepartum Doula. Shannon is a Licensed Massage Therapist, and treats many of our clients to wonderful prenatal and postpartum massages.

Jackie Wallace and Chelsea Craig

In the summer, we added Jackie and Chelsea to our team. Jackie comes to us as a Birth Doula with her Postpartum Training rapidly approaching. Chelsea comes to us as a Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula, and BirthF!t instructor.

In-Home Prenatal and Postpartum Massage

With the addition of Shannon we also got the addition of in-home prenatal and postpartum massage. Many of our clients have been able to experience the magic of Shannon's work. With a passion and drive for babies and newly postpartum mothers, she comes to the homes of our clients, and helps them to relax, promote healing, and take care of themselves. There isn't a better in-home massage therapist in the Kansas City, Overland Park, or Johnson County area.

Placenta Encapsulation

We were also excited to add Placenta Encapsulation to our amazing offerings. Sunny is our professional postpartum placenta specialist. Using the highest standards possible, she provides in-home encapsulation to ensure that your placenta and it's microbiome are never tainted with foreign bacteria. Your placenta never leaves your sight and you are able to see the placenta encapsulation procedure if you so choose. Sunny, as a professionally trained postpartum doula, can also come in and offer support for any number of issues that might arise. The benefit of in-home encapsulation is the personal, one on one touch that you will receive and the unparalleled safety.

Big things are still ahead for Kansas City Family Birth as we are always looking to serve our area families better and foster connection in the birthing community. We're so excited to share with you! Thanks for all your continued support and love, you're the reason we strive for excellence.

Stay tuned to see what we have got in our doula bags.
