Postpartum Doula Services

I provide sensitive and comprehensive help throughout the early weeks with a newborn. My goal is to make this postpartum time easier, with tailored support for the unique needs of your family, so you can get off to a great start with your new baby.

My doula support can include any of the following, and I focus on what will be the most help for you to feel more comfortable, confident, and capable... and on your way to no longer needing me!
