Postpartum Doula Services
Support for Mom
As your postpartum doula I will be with you at home to help with your emotional recovery from birth.
Continued holistic support is the first line of defense against postpartum depression and I will provide that support for you.
Your body needs time to heal - whether your birth was vaginal or c-section, your body has been through a traumatic event and simply needs time to heal.
The time, after a new birth, requires support for you and your family which I can provide.

I will be there to give emotional care and help nurture you while you nurture your new baby and your transition as a new mom.
You deserve to have the support you need to enjoy the weeks after birth and the transition into parenthood.
