Holistic Postpartum Support

 

 

 
 
 
Whether you are bringing home your first baby, multiples, or expanding your family, the arrival of a newborn can bring its share of chaos, into our lives. Postpartum Doula care, can provide you with the help and peace of mind you need,  to focus on bonding with your baby.
 
While the needs of each family are unique, my role as a Certified Postpartum Doula, is to support you in finding the confidence, to trust your own instincts. I'll also encourage you as you develop the parenting style and practices that work best for your family, and will help you address your own self care needs and well-being.
