Postpartum Doula Services

 In-home postpartum doula services to provide the physical, emotional and educational support to the mother and her partner before, during and just after birth. Childbirth preparation classes prepare you for the birth experience, but often there is not enough preparation for the new role as parents and how your life will change once the baby is brought home from the hospital. Extra support and hands-on experience can ease feelings of apprehension and uncertainty. I can provide support and education in newborn care and solutions to common breastfeeding questions as well as provide resources and referrals to providers in the community to help you transition to parenthood.
