Do I need a 

POSTPARTUM DOULA?

A postpartum doula is a trained caregiver who supports a family as they adjust to life with a new baby. Whether it is your first baby or fifth baby or you’re bringing home twins or triplets or more, a growing family presents unique challenges each time.

 

Those early weeks are critical for recovery and bonding and every new family deserves to be supported during this precious time.

My role as your postpartum doula is to support and nurture each member of the family. I am also educated in the most recent evidence-based information surrounding postpartum recovery and newborn care. I am trained to anticipate your needs and meet them and will refer specialists as needed or requested.
