Congratulations on your journey towards parenthood (or parenthood once again!)
As a Postpartum Doula, my goal is to provide you with compassionate
and knowledgeable guidance throughout this transformative time in your life.
A Postpartum Doula
is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and practical support to new mothers and their families.
How does a Postpartum Doula support you?
A Doula is a continuous comforting presence: offering encouragement, showing a caring and empathetic attitude, and helping you and your family work through fears and self-doubt about parenting and life after your baby arrives.
A Doula can help keep you and your family informed through your recovery and each milestone of your newborn's development. They can also help you find evidence-based information about different options and strategies as you navigate new parenthood. A Doula is an unbiased resource, never a source.
A Doula can help ease your transition home by helping with light housework, grocery shopping and meal preparation. A doula can also help with newborn care while parents rest, sibling support and can be act as a buffer for family members, friends and visitors.
