About Sam

My Journey and Mission

Hey there! I’m Sam – I’m so happy and honored you have found your way to my offerings. Over the last decade, I have found myself drawn to the work of serving children, their families and the individuals that make up the whole. My passion for working with children and families, has blossomed beautifully into taking my offerings to another level – supporting the Mother’s journey into Motherhood and caring for the family in the early days of their big transition.

It is my mission to be a loving and unwavering support, as the Mother opens herself up for growing and birthing new life into this world. I also believe the healing and closing after birth is Sacred and Mothers deserve the support and attention needed to feel seen and held as they heal and settle into Motherhood.

With my experience in child care, yoga and meditation, and birth education, I am here to support any and all Mother’s and their unique needs during such a profound moment in their life. I believe all Mothers deserve to feel loved, heard, seen and celebrated in honor and reverence as they embark on this journey. While supporting the Mother fully, I am here to enhance the experience of the entire family unit – here to be support for Mothers, Fathers and Siblings.

I am deeply honored to hold the hands and space for mothers in our community, who may be transitioning from Maiden to Mother or who may be adding another babe to the pack. This is a sacred moment in time and I vow to honor the Mother, as she walks her Beauty Way.

I service the greater Eastern Kansas community – Manhattan, Topeka, Lawrence and surrounding rural towns and areas.

I am honored to offer these services and look forward to holding space for you!

A little bit about me…

* I am a mama to a beautiful six year old little lady and two year old little man, who are the center of my world. I enjoy planning activities and adventures with them; we homeschool our children and are so thrilled to live in a community that supports a more simple approach to learning and living for our little ones.

* When I find time for myself I like to enjoy it outside, either exploring natural spaces or in my garden space! My garden is where I feel most at home; I enjoy sowing seeds, tending to the plants and harvesting the fruits of our labor.

* I am a mover and a shaker! I love movement of all kinds; I enjoy a nice sweaty exercise, dancing on the dance floor or being inside my circle (hula hoop) finding my flow. Movement has always been a major part of my Earthly experience, and I continue to find ways to keep myself active and explore the abilities of this body!

* Things I like to do – Enjoy live music & move my body, fishing and camping, paddle boarding, gardening and tending to my indoor plants, spending time at the shooting range, diving deeper into learning about my passions and topics that spark my interest, spontaneous road trips, playing drums, hula hooping and there’s just something sweet I love about mowing my yard!
