Postpartum Support

It's a common myth that once a person has given birth their need for support dramatically decreases. People are realizing that this is just not the case. Doctors are great for developing babies, but parents need community. Whether this is your first baby or not, every transition is different and you don't have to navigate it alone. You deserve all the support you need.  

To the newly postpartum parent day to day tasks can become a struggle and might find the transition more challenging than expected. Some days you might find yourself picking and choosing what battles to take on. On others, maybe you're wishing you had someone who understands your needs and can be that resource to work towards them. With a postpartum doula, all of your needs can be addressed and be met. Your doula can fill in any gaps to help create the space and time you need to bond with your baby. Your doula is committed to making your transition into parenthood as seamless as possible.
