Feel Empowered Throughout Your Parental Journey
Being a parent is one of the most rewarding and amazing experiences life has to offer. Beyond the love, excitement and anticipation it is completely normal to feel overwhelmed, nervous, and scared.

Your Postpartum Doula
I will see you for a prenatal session offering the opportunity to share your hopes, dreams, fears, or anxieties, whatever you are feeling at the time. Getting to know you allows me to know where to focus my energy for your immediate desires and needs. It also provides insight into details that may be overlooked during what can be an emotionally overwhelming time. You will also learn about my skills and the different ways those skills will be beneficial to you during this time.
Having this prenatal session also provides an opportunity for you to get to know me and feel excited and comfortable about having me support you and your partner. Closer to the expected arrival of the baby, I will check in more frequently and once your baby has come home I will begin supporting your family in the ways we had decided upon.
To make communication between us simple, I have a direct email and phone number for you to text or call. As your doula, you can call, text or email me at any time to ask questions, share news, or just chat.
Your Journey with Your Postpartum Doula Always Includes
Availability throughout pregnancy and beyond for evidence-based information and resources as well as emotional support for you and your partner. We provide resources and recommendations to all things birth-related including birth education, prenatal massage, parent groups, chiropractors etc., and offer a lending library of books.
A time for us to get to know one another but also to help you feel prepared. I tailor prenatal sessions to your specific needs and package selected, but always discuss and provide a variety of evidenced-based information regarding mom, baby, and all things postpartum. We will talk about what to expect when you arrive home, how to manage guests and rest, give tips on where your energy should be dedicated, and review various comfort measures and techniques for both mom and baby. We will also discuss on how you might mentally prepare and manage all the changes that occur during such a transitional time.
Adding to the family, whether this is your first child or fifth, creates changes to the family dynamic. I will help smooth this transition by incorporating each family member, highlighting each individuals vital role in the care and support of the new baby. Family walks together on this golden path.
After our in home support is wrapped up, do not worry I am still your doula! My support will continue for your family as long as you wish. As things change, you may have questions that arise, discover a new need, want to share milestones, or just chat for reassurance. Whatever it is, I am just a message or phone call away! Your parental journey is one I will excitedly continue to travel on with you!
