Since I have been supporting families as a birth and postpartum doula for about four years now, I have met some great professionals in the field that I would like to recommend. I am a strong believer in taking advantage of all the wonderful care the community of holistic practitioners here in Philadelphia has to offer you through pregnancy and postpartum.

“There is a phase in labor, appropriately called transition, where a woman will meet her breaking point. She’ll feel as though she just can’t go on, and she is right. The maiden in her is not strong enough for the task at hand. It’s during this Time the maiden dies so that the woman can be reborn as a mother, with her child. A new, more capable version of herself with far more strength than she has ever known. From maiden to mother.”
– Carley Mendes
