As a postpartum doula I provide a comforting, non-judgmental presence, and an experienced pair of hands that support you and your little one in practical ways.
I would love to:
Care for your baby so you can get the essential rest you need
Help with any practical tasks/concerns you have such as guidance on newborn care and breast or bottle-feeding support
Be an impartial soundboard
Support you holistically (mind, body and soul)
Provide information, referrals and guidance
Reassure you to trust in your ability
Take good care of you so you can be more confident as a parent
You are already doing an incredible job. Let me provide the physical, emotional and mental respite you need to be stronger, healthier and even more present for your newborn.
Do I need a Postpartum Doula?
I am glad you asked. Becoming a parent is a remarkable accomplishment, though the days following childbirth can be deeply intense. The scope of experience and support I offer promotes a smoother, more natural adjustment to your newest family member. You may be welcoming your firstborn or your last; you may only want light assistance or something more involved. You may even have close family members who mean well but aren’t always helpful. I listen, understand and do. From the first day you bring your baby home, I attend to your particular needs and work dedicatedly to see you and your little one thrive.
Not all parents have heard of a postpartum doula. You may have just discovered me and your newborn may already be a few weeks old. That’s perfectly fine. I work with parents throughout the fourth trimester. If you would like:
A little current wisdom on how to care for your baby
Time to sleep or look after yourself
Trusted answers to questions such as how do I know if they are getting enough to eat? What is that rash or what does that sound they make mean? Why can’t they sleep?
Reassurance that the ups and downs of your day are normal, and so on
Then email me for a free 30-minute consult to meet and find out more.

I am your gentle anchor, level rock, extra pair of hands, cheerleader, soundboard, encourager and advocate.
I am not a night nurse, babysitter, personal coach, in-house counsellor, psychologist or house help.
You’re amazing. Big or small, your needs matter.
