Postpartum Doula


The day your baby arrives is one of the most exhilarating and joyous occasions of your family’s lives. It can also be one of the most exhausting, stressful, and emotional times as well. You may not feel confident or know where to turn when you have questions.  This is where I come in.  I can help ease some of the adjustment that is needed when a new baby comes into your home.  Helping families in those first few precious weeks is my specialty.


Here are just a handful of ways that I can help:

  • Newborn care
  • Breastfeeding support, if applicable
  • Provide emotional support
  • Provide referrals to lactation consultants and medical professionals

As a postpartum doula, I am not able to perform medical interventions, rather I will be there to help you adjust to being a parent and feel confident in doing so.  And unlike a baby nurse who only cares for the newborn,  I am there to care for the whole family.
