As your Postpartum Doula, I am here to not only provide you with evidence based information, but also help nourish you in mind and body. The word "Doula" originates from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves." It is now used to refer to as someone who provides physical, emotional and evidence based informational support to a birthing person and their family during the labor, birth and postpartum period.
I am here to provide a safe space for you to properly heal and bond with your baby. I will nourish you with nutrient dense foods, help guide you with safe newborn care practices, breastfeeding support and much more.
