Navigate newborn parenting with grace and confidence.
Yes. You CAN take a shower, or a nap, or get a full night's rest. It is possible.
When you have me as your postpartum doula, we will work together to figure out what you need the most and then make it happen.
For some families, newborn support looks like me spending time with the baby so you can shower, or rest, or meal prep, or tidy up your living space.
For some families it's just the opposite, there are so many demands on your time, you may want me to prep the meal and tidy so you can spend precious time with your baby.
It may be different each time and that's okay. It may not even be in your home! You may need help going to the grocery store for the first time with a baby. You may want to get out of the house, take a walk, talk to an adult person.
I offer newborn support during the day, or overnight, or both.
