Doula Services

Sometimes wonderful, sometimes wearisome, the postpartum period always brings significant change to a womanís life. Itís a time when we most need the support of other women. Women traditionally did not give birth and welcome their newborns into their families alone, but today women are often expected to mark this milestone in isolation. We are expected to meet the challenges of new motherhood with ease, grace, and perfection. But motherhood is not about perfection, itís about being there for your baby. You can do this by taking better care of yourself. A postpartum doula can help.

By providing a supportive, nurturing presence in your home, I can help you deal with the day-to-day concerns you face when your newest family member comes home. I can help with household tasks, assist with other children, provide an opportunity for you to rest, help address breastfeeding concerns, identify supportive resources in your community, or whatever you need most. Above all, I provide a sympathetic ear, and the understanding and support you need in this amazing time in your life. I also provide wellness coaching and life coaching for new moms.
