Supporting Families After Birth

           

The focus of the Postpartum Doula is to  support and guide you through your Matrescence and the family's transition with a newborn.

 

When your new baby enters this world, I'm here to support you in many ways. We will make space to honor your incredible pregnancy, birth story, and beyond.  Because every family's challenges can be so different, I am here for your individualized needs without judgement.
