One step at a time...

Tackling it one day at a time. Minute by minute. Hour by hour. One feeding at a time. Advice for new parents. It is overwhelming bringing a new baby home after experiencing childbirth and postpartum recovery. During my most recent daytime shift with a family, I left behind a little outline of notes for them. It was a short visit but within those three hours I helped cover a feeding, supported the parents as they slept and showered, organized baby items in the nursery, and g

Prepping Bottle Supplies

Figuring out what kind of bottles your baby will take to is a bit of trial and error. There are many brands and styles to choose from. I have only used @drbrowns with my babies. I am learning about other bottle brands as I work with clients.

Birth Doula Support

Overnight coverage is my favorite option because it gives both parents the opportunity to get much needed sleep. Whether your baby is breastfed or bottle fed, having a doula assist at night will give new parents the restorative sleep they need to

Why I Became a Doula

I was inspired to become a doula after helping a young mother who needed advice with breastfeeding. I am a mother of three and with my first baby I was given exceptional support in learning how to breastfeed. Learning technique and gaining confidence in the skill was crucial to my success but it was the emotional support that carried me through. Knowing that I had the support of a lactation consultant available to me whenever I needed her made me feel safe and taken care of.

Client Testimonial: Kendall

I am so grateful for the families that welcome me into their lives and personal space to help them through the postpartum process.
