Postpartum Services

Why Hire A Postpartum Doula:

Research has shown that parents who receive postpartum support have greater success with breastfeeding, lower incidence of postpartum depression, lower incidence of abuse, and feel more confident in their adjustment to new family dynamics.

My Philosophy:

My goal is to promote happy, healthy, well-bonded families. I believe that all families with a new baby deserve extra emotional and physical support during the “fourth trimester”. I help new parents learn to read their baby’s cues, teach newborn basics, help with breastfeeding, and provide night time care for the parents and baby so that the parents can sleep! I believe that parents being well rested, supported and cared for is essential to their emotional well-being, which is directly related to the well-being of the newborn and to the bonding process.
