Everything You Need for the Childbearing year
My birth doula care begins in pregnancy, with two comprehensive home visits helping you and your birth partner(s) to feel prepared for birth. My role includes continuous emotional support for you and your partner, physical comfort measures, information support, and helping you advocate for yourself every step of the way.
As a postpartum doula, I am all about mothering you as a new mother and nurturing your family. Ideally I would be at your home once you get home from your birthplace. My role is to help your new family sleep, rest, relax, enjoy, feed and bond with your baby. I will help with food, breastfeeding, household tasks, baby care instruction, and emotional support.
As a lactation counselor, I help you get a solid healthy start to breastfeeding your baby. I encourage you to begin with my prenatal breastfeeding class while you are pregnant, building a foundation for your first weeks with baby. After birth, I can come to your home to help with any breastfeeding issues that may occur.
