Your Postpartum Doula
Your postpartum doula will see you for a prenatal session before your baby comes. Having this prenatal session provides an opportunity for us to get to know one another and allow excitement and comfort around our support. This time provides an opportunity for you to share your hopes, dreams, fears or anxieties. We learn where to better focus our energy, giving insight into areas that might be overlooked during an often emotionally overwhelming time.
In this prenatal you will also learn about our support and the different ways we will be beneficial to you during this time. Closer to the expected arrival of your baby your doula will check in more frequently. Once your baby has come home, doula support begins.
☀️ You will have a direct email and phone number to your doula so you are able to call, text or email to ask questions, share news, or just chat. ☀️
