Babies are a blessing and childbirth is a miracle!  I’ve been blessed myself with four beautiful children and five beautiful GRANDchildren. With my love of babies and the incredible miracle of the birth experience I found the desire to become a Postpartum Doula. Bringing a new baby home is a life-changing event and integrating that new little bundle into the family can be overwhelming.  As your Doula, I will make this transition easier for the entire family.  My role as your Doula will also be to provide education, non-judgmental support and companionship.  I will offer my expertise in newborn care, breast-feeding support, light meal preparation and light household tasks.  I will also offer evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, infant soothing and coping skills. I will also make appropriate referrals when necessary. I am a certified Doula through DONA International.  The training I received through DONA has increased my knowledge and ambition to offer the nurturing care new Mom’s, infants and families so deserve!  My hours for my services will be flexible to meet the needs of you and your family including overnights and travel. I am current in both adult, infant CPR and First Aid Safety certifications through the Red Cross.  Also, I am current on all vaccinations and I’m happy to provide references at your request.  I look forward to being your “extra pair of loving hands” and my goal is to simplify your life as new parents.
