Holistic Postpartum Doula

Holistic (ho-lis-tic): characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.

 

Being a new parent is challenging emotionally and physically. I will provide the support you need to adjust to this new life. Research shows the transition of bringing home a new baby is much easier on mom and partner when a good support team is in place. I offer individualized, evidence-based services that can help with this process, including breastfeeding support, help with emotional and physical recovery, sibling care, baby soothing techniques, and newborn care assistance. I am a part of your team and will do all I can to provide you with the support you want and need.

I am up to date on varying parenting philosophies, infant care, feeding and safe sleep options. You can rest assured you will be fully supported and cared for during the "4th Trimester".

I am a firm believer in this concept of the "4th Trimester" and will do all I can to make sure you feel comfortable and confident. I also offer extended care for up to one year postpartum.

I take a holistic approach with my clients. I want to make sure you have everything you need; from nutrition & movement to spiritual & emotional. I also want to pamper you and give you time for self-care like taking a nice long hot bath! This goes for your partner as well. This support is optional and is customized to meet your individual needs. When you hire me you are hiring someone that cares about you as a whole.

To start we will have an initial phone conversation which will lead to an in person consultation. During the consultation your postpartum care plan will be developed. Days or nights you can rest assured I will do all I can to help you feel calm, connected and ready to take on your new role.
