A personalized strategic plan for a healthy mom and a healthy baby

When you're going through infertility, a high-risk pregnancy, a high-stress pregnancy or are parenting your miracle baby, doubt often arises.

Am I doing enough?
Is there more I could do?
How else can I do and be better?

You're tired of being told to "wait and see". 

You are over the helplessness and overwhelm as you navigate blogs, online forums and research studies trying to make sense of it all. 

You're sick of the circular talk and are looking for what to do - what actions to take to help you on this leg of your family-building journey. 

You know you can take care of it on your own if someone just told you what to do.

If that sounds like you, I invite you to book your strategic planning consultation with me so we can address your fertility, pregnancy, postpartum or parenting questions and concerns. 

Together, we'll review what you're already doing, who you have on your team and I will help you create a plan to fill in the gaps.

After the consultation, you will walk away with a personalized strategic map with details on where to get more support, who to add to your team, and how to make this part of your family-building journey easier.

Common reasons why women have booked with me:


  • Have a history of a high-risk pregnancy or preterm birth and want to know what they can do to improve their health and wellness for a future pregnancy

  • Have been trying to conceive for several months and are nervous about or not yet ready to reach out to a fertility specialist

  • They're pregnant after loss(es) and are anxious about getting pregnant again

  • Have read Pregnancy Brain and want personalized support to implement the tools from the book during their high-risk pregnancy

  • Are ready for NICU discharge and are unsure about what life will be like away from the hospital and round-the-clock care

  • Feel overwhelmed with coordinating care for their preemie and need a plan on how to organize it all and stay sane in the process

By the end of the call, you’ll have clarity about how to improve your health, wellness, healing and parenting skills, as well as a personalized strategic plan that you can implement immediately to help you along your family building journey.

This strategic plan will include:

>>> Tools to address common causes of physiological stress including:


  • anxiety

  • patient care concerns

  • marriage and partnership

  • social support

  • poor sleep

  • grief

>>> Recommendations for specialists to add to your (or your baby's) care team

>>> Questions to ask your care team for improved care and clarity about your (or your baby's) treatment plan so you don't miss important details

>>> Expert advice and guidance on your most pressing questions to reduce overwhelm

What moms are saying


Having an action plan right away was the biggest gift in the world. I had talked to all the doctors. I had researched everything. This is what I needed most. It is such a gift. - Angela


Parijat is good! She knew exactly how to articulate what I needed even better than I knew how to say it. She gave me so many resources and for my husband too. After talking with her, I had more hope about being able to get pregnant than I'd ever had before. - Hillary


When my baby was born prematurely, I didn't know where to turn for support and understanding. Parijat has been one of my biggest supporters since my 23 weeker came home from the NICU. I am grateful for her compassion, knowledge and understanding. - Andrea


I was anxious and lost on what questions to ask my doctor. Parijat offered clarity. I would definitely suggest someone with a high-risk pregnancy speak with her as sometimes the doctor just doesn't understand where you are coming from. - Nicole


Parijat was exactly who I needed to get through my pregnancy. She's an amazing listener and is so compassionate about what I'm going through I couldn't have done it without you! - Lauren


Parijat is an excellent resource. She really helped me through my last hospital stay. Thank you for always helping me sort out my thoughts. You've been an amazing help. - Heather



Here's how it works

  1. Clarity Questionnaire: When you register for your private consultation, you will receive an in-depth health and wellness questionnaire to help you become clear on your most important concerns and questions you want to address during your call. We cover topics such as health and patient care, anxiety, grief, sleep and your partnership, etc., all factors that activate your stress response.

  2. Research: After the questionnaire has been submitted, I will spend 7 business days doing research, digging into my personal network and finding the best resources I believe will help you achieve your wellness goals related to your fertility, pregnancy or postpartum healing. This is so you don't have to spend hours on google making your head spin and know you will have reliable sources of information, strategies and resources to help you on your family-building journey.

  3. Personalized strategic plan: Within 7 business days of our submitting your questionnaire, you will receive your detailed strategic plan with your next steps with an audio guide from me outlining my recommendations. 

  4. Email follow up: You will have an additional 7 business days of email support to ask questions and clarify anything on the strategic plan.

**Please note: this consultation does not include a phone call. Due to my busy schedule, at this time, phone and video consultations are reserved for private clients in the Path to Baby or Hold My Hand programs only.

No more "wait-and-see" or "hope for the best" while you sit on your hands waiting for the other shoe to drop. 

This highly specialized, personal consultation is designed to help you get back in control of your situation, reclaim power and receive actionable advice that is designed to help you in exactly the way that you need.

This consultation and strategic plan is NOT right for everyone.

It is not right for you if:


  • You want to talk through your experiences and are not looking for actionable advice. Yes, we will talk during our Strategy call but it is to create a plan to help you take action. If you just want to talk and process what you've been through, I recommend reaching out to a licensed therapist or psychologist who has experience working with clients in your situation.

  • You prefer a "top-down" approach to stress management that focus on thoughts, behaviors with cognitive tools. If this resonates with you, I recommend reaching out to a licensed psychotherapist or psychologist who has experience working with clients in your situation.

  • You're hoping for a quick fix to make everything better. I truly wish there were bandaids for the challenges that come with infertility, a high-risk pregnancy, the NICU, birth trauma and parenting a medically complex child. But this consultation is not a bandaid. The strategies I will teach you will take conscious effort from you to implement and see results from.

  • You're not interested or ready to make lifestyle or health changes to improve your reproductive, pregnancy and/or postpartum health.

  • You are unable or unwilling to invest in your health and wellness.

  • You're looking for immediate assistance. My calendar is booking out weeks in advance so this is not for urgent matters. In the case of an emergency, please call call 911 or visit your nearest emergency room.

This consultation is PERFECT for you if:

  • You're sick of just talking in circles about how hard this is and are ready to DO something about it. 

  • You're craving an action plan, someone to tell you what to do so you can improve your health and wellness and parent advocacy skills.

  • You want research-backed strategies to help improve your health and wellness without having to dive into a literature search yourself.

  • You want professional advice from someone whose priority is YOU and not insurance companies or red tape.

  • You know that your body's stress response is activated by any number of factors (including anxiety, grief, guilt, lack of sleep, social isolation, etc) and you're looking for body-based tools and strategies to deactivate your physiological stress response.

  • You feel confident in your medical team but are ready to know what more you can do on your own to improve your fertility, pregnancy or postpartum health and wellness OR care for a medically complex child in the real world.

  • You want expert guidance from someone who's personally been there.


The investment for the private consultation and personalized strategic plan is $215.



Is this consultation covered by insurance?

No, this consultation does not provide a diagnosis or treatment for a diagnosis therefore it will not be covered by insurance plans. You may discuss with your insurance company if they will allow you to pay with your FSA/HSA account by asking if mind-body wellness consultation is covered.

Why would I need this if I already have a doctor I trust?
Having a doctor and medical team you trust is critical! So great that you have that already. However, traditionally trained physicians are often not aware of the mind-body and lifestyle strategies that exist that have been shown to improve fertility, pregnancy, postpartum health, nor are they necessarily prepared to answer real-life questions about what it's like to parent a NICU baby. This consultation will give you additional tools and strategies (on top of your medical treatment plans) so you havea full arsenal of resources to help you when you're faced with a new roadbump or challenge.

So this is not a therapy session?
No. I am not assessing, diagnosing or treating you for any medical or mental health condition. This is a collaborative effort to help you break out of the cycle of overwhelm and helplessness, so you can have clarity and personalized tools to help you on your journey, whatever my lie ahead. As soon as I begin reviewing your questionnaire, I'm reaching out to my networks and contacts to find you the best referrals, searching for literature to support the next steps we recommend and I put together a customized plan with personalized strategies and action items. It's a powerful program to help you regain control, confidence and hope.

What are these body-based techniques you talk about?
My approach is what's called a "bottom-up" approach, which means we nourish and support the body to deactivate the stress response, with the understanding that the mind/thoughts/emotions will follow. This is different than the traditional approach, which is a "top-down" approach, where the focus is on shifting and reframing thoughts and behaviors, with the assumption that the body will follow. Body-based tools, including any journal prompts I may share, focus on releasing the stress from your body and not focused on your thoughts. If the top-down approach resonates more with you, I would recommend reaching out to a licensed psychotherapist or psychologist who specializes with working with clients in your situation.

What if I want to join your private programs and become a client? Do I still need to schedule a strategic plan consultation?
Not necessarily. If you are 100% sure I'm the right person to help you and you know the programs I offer are exactly what you're looking for, you are welcome to apply directly to the program. We will hop on a quick call to answer any last minute questions and get you registered in the program right away. If you are not 100% sure, then the Strategic Plan Consultation is a great first step to see if my approach and recommendations resonate with you.
