Supporting Women and Families
through Pregnancy & Postpartum
I see pregnancy, birth, and the growth of a family as one of the most beautiful things about humanity. As a Doula, I am privileged to help women and their partners make these experiences as positive and healthy as possible.
After beginning our relationship with a meet and greet, as your doula I am committed to your health and the wellbeing of your growing family, available whenever needed throughout your entire pregnancy as well as after giving birth. As a D.O.N.A. trained doula, I will be there to provide you with continuous emotional and physical support, and answer any and all questions you may have.
Babies who are breastfed exclusively for the first 6 months, without any formula, have fewer ear infections, respiratory illnesses, or bouts of diarrhea. I am a CAPPA trained Lactation Educator and work with families from preconception through the stage of weaning offering education, encouragement, counseling, an experienced point of view, and fostering confidence, and a commitment to breastfeeding.
Also known as The Fourth Trimester, the post partum period is as critical as the previous nine months.The first three months of a baby’s life in an outside-the-uterus world is full of intense development, a biological bridge from fetal life to preparation for the real world. During this time not only is baby getting adjusted but so is the ENTIRE family! Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a CAPPA Postpartum Doula with you to help you adjust, learn your baby and reinforce the ancestral / instinctual knowledge we all have in us when it comes to providing for our young?
