Meet Your Needs!

As a Postpartum Doula I am trained to support you and your newest family member.  I am here to help with whatever you may need at the moment. Fmailies benefit from help with meal preparation, newborn care, feeding, and development, and the promotion of parent-infant bonding. I can come into your home during your fourth trimester to provide education, non-judgemental support and companionship; and to assist with newborn care and family adjustment, meal preparation and light household tasks. I can offer evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from childbirth, infant soothing and coping skills for "new" parents. My role is of non-medical support. I offer a variety of flexible scheduling options including full days, 3-4 hour shifts and weekends.

*My signature shift is from 5-9am. Mom (and Dad) can get a few hours sleep and start your day off right with a shower and hot breakfast!*
