Congratulations on your new addition to the family! Ensuring you and your loved ones feel well cared for and at ease is my top priority. As your dedicated postpartum doula, I am here to provide nurturing support, valuable education on postpartum recovery, age-appropriate baby behavior, and emotional/mental health adjustments. Let me be your personal "what to expect and what is actually considered normal" guide, so you can relax (as best you can!) and fully embrace your postpartum bonding time.
For Your Baby: Sometimes, it's the seemingly simple things that can make a significant difference for your little one. From explaining that those adorable hiccups after every feed are common (because I've observed a few feedings and all seems to be going well) to discovering your baby's cuddle preferences or what their cry might mean, I'm here to share valuable insights that will help you confidently care for your baby.
For You, the Parent(s): As we embark on this incredible journey together, our conversations will cover a range of topics. Whether it's finding the perfect balance between rest and feeding (breast or bottle or both) or navigating the adjustments to this new chapter in your life, I'm here to offer support and understanding. I can assist in managing the offers of help from friends and family, or creating a calm and peaceful environment for some cherished quiet time with your little one all while keeping an eye out for anything outside of common postpartum experiences.
Each Family Is Unique: I cherish the diversity of families and the beautiful ways in which they come together. My approach to postpartum doula care embraces this individuality. By actively listening, asking the right questions, and observing, together, we will shape our time together to suit your family's specific needs and preferences.
My Ultimate Goal: As your postpartum doula, my ultimate goal is to help your family adjust smoothly to life with your new baby(ies). The journey looks different for everyone, and that's what makes my role so fulfilling! Witnessing the profound love and devotion parents have for their babies is a privilege, and I am committed to providing unwavering support throughout.
I'm genuinely excited to hear your story and explore how we can work together to ensure you have the best postpartum recovery time possible. Let's embark on this journey together and create a nurturing environment where you and your family can thrive.
Please reach out to me, and let's begin this beautiful adventure.
Each family support experience is unique so when we chat we can talk specifics for your situation. Overall though, I work in 4 hours appointments in the daytime and as scheduling allows, the evening hours.
