Postpartum Support - Mothering the Mother

I structure my postpartum support from the books The Fourth Trimester and The First Forty Days: Nourishing the New Mother. I believe in planning for your postpartum period, setting realistic goals, and being gentle and kind to yourself as you heal and transition into motherhood. I believe this time can be both beautiful and challenging for you and your family.

As your postpartum doula, I'm honored to take care of the things important to you so you can focus on rest, recovery and caring for your newborn. My priority is on mothering the mother -- whether that's feeding you a nutritious meal in bed, helping you process your birth experience, or letting you slip into an herbal bath while your household is taken care of. Let me help make your transition into motherhood an empowering one!
