Nurtured Beginnings Professional Birth Services
Professional Birth Services
The time of birth and the immediate postpartum is a beautiful, transformative time when the new family is forming and bonding. It has been my immense pleasure and honor to serve families in the Midlands area of South Carolina during this remarkable time in various capacities for more than 14 years.
Since my first birth doula training in 2005, I have been committed to continued education and exceptional care. I've served as a birth doula, a breastfeeding counselor, and a childbirth educator; I'm currently offering services as a homebirth midwife's assistant, a Bengkung-style Belly Binding specialist, and a certified placenta encapsulation specialist.
I never stop learning and improving, and hope to continue to expand my offerings to better serve the Greater Midlands area. Contact me today to learn how Nurtured Beginnings Birth Services can serve your family!
I am certified through Brilliant Birth Academy as a Placenta Encapsulation Specialist. I am also certified in South Carolina as a food handler and have completed certification in Blood Borne Pathogens and Infection Control for Placenta Encapsulators.
All services are rendered in my workspace following strict OSHA guidelines.
Service includes pick up and delivery within 30 miles of my home (message for details); steaming, dehydration, and processing of the placenta into capsules; and an optional umbilical cord keepsake. Additional services available at additional cost include color placenta print, placenta salve, and placenta tincture.
Bengkung-style Belly Binding
This service is coming soon! I am currently in the process of becoming a certified practitioner of the traditional Malaysian style of postpartum belly binding known as Bengkung. Check back soon to see updates on this service!
What My Clients Are Saying...
As a second time mother and first time placenta capsule consumer, I can say I definitely noticed a HUGE difference in my recovery from each of my pregnancies and both were uncomplicated home births. This time around, I had so much more energy in the weeks following the birth of my son and my milk production is so much better! My body returned to a much more “normal” feeling state much quicker with consuming the capsules. I will definitely be encapsulating any future placentas and will be more than happy to work with Darci again. She is so sweet and had a very quick turn around on my capsules. She also made us two beautiful placenta prints and a very neat umbilical cord keepsake. I wish I would have known Darci when I had my first child!
I wish I had known about placenta encapsulation when I was pregnant with my other children. It has been such a neat experience, and I’m so glad I decided to give it a try. I’ve always struggled in the postpartum period, but this time recovery has been much smoother. I have more energy and feel more mentally grounded, which is needed when you have four kiddos! Darci was so great and accommodating throughout the whole process. In addition to the placental pills, I also received some beautiful placenta prints, an umbilical keepsake, and a really awesome salve. If I were going to have any more children, I would definitely have Darci encapsulate my placenta again.
