Postpartum Doula

A Postpartum Doula doesn’t take over the work of a mother, like a babysitter does. I help to empower the mother, support her, and guide her through the amazing transition of motherhood. Keeping the “mother in mind”, my duties allow the mother to mentally and physically recover from childbirth while creating an everlasting bond with her new child.

I absolutely support the family’s parenting style but may also open doors to a whole new world that the parents didn’t even know existed, such as breastfeeding beyond a year old or co-sleeping. A custom package can be created to meet your needs.
