An article by the New York Times, Everyone Should Have a Postpartum Doula, sums it up well… Bringing a new baby home is wonderful and often overwhelming. My goal is to ease your transition into your “Fourth Trimester” by offering guidance and support as you grow confident in your intuition and instincts as a new parent.
Families with newborns need nurturing and gentle
support. Focusing on your needs and helping both parents develop confidence in your parenting skills is my priority. I share techniques for newborn care, feeding, soothing and bathing. I also help ease your older child’s transition to their new role in your family.
There are many good ways to care for babies although it can be confusing when you have contrasting input from the internet, your parents, and friends. I will provide you the space and support in sorting through all that information so you can make the best decisions for your family. While I am always willing to share my experience on any question you might have, my goal is to be helpful in a quiet, pleasant, and unobtrusive way, and be respectful of the traditions, culture and values of your family.
Please contact me to set up a free consultation to discuss how I can meet your needs and support your family.
