The postpartum period is such a unique bubble in time and good support is essential. Everything is new and challenging and wonderfully exhausting. As a postpartum doula, I offer compassionate and patient breastfeeding support and strive to help families adjust to parenthood, whether it be your first baby or your twelfth. I provide evidence-based information on breastfeeding, pumping and formula feeding (or any combination thereof) to help you feel empowered to make feeding choices that are best for your family. I'm supportive of each family's decision about how/what they'd like to feed their baby and give parents sound advice on how to best go about it. We'll work on reading your baby's cues to make it easier for you to respond to your baby’s needs, which in turn will help build your confidence as a parent. I provide unconditional emotional support to families, offer strategies for good sleep routines, self-care and baby care. I love to cook! And can assist you by preparing nutritious meals, throwing a load of laundry in the machine, running to the grocery store to pick up the essentials, reorganizing your home to make it more baby-friendly, and provide resources for additional support services as needed. I look forward to providing you with top-notch care in your early postpartum period to help make your transition into parenthood a smooth and joyous experience.
I recommend booking a minimum of 12 hrs prenatally to ensure that I'll have availability in my schedule when you need support. New parents usually use those 12 hours for three 4-hour visits. The first visit can be as soon after your birth as you'd like. If you've already given birth and need help immediately, that's ok too! Just reach out and we'll set something up.
