Services: Postpartum Doula

Navigating Postpartum is all about ensuring that mom and family have the information, preparation and resources they need during postpartum to feel supported and equipped through the transition into parenthood. I believe that this period is crucial for all members of the family unit, and so try to focus on healing foods, emotional and physical well-being, and areas specific to the family's needs.
