Postpartum is Better with Sleep, Showers & Support!
You just had a baby and your life has changed in an instant! Sleepless nights, recovery after birth, learning how to care for your baby all while trying to figure out how to be a mom yourself. And did we mention the constant feedings, diapering and feeling of tired and overwhelm?!
We know how difficult these first days, weeks, and months can be. But we believe that with support, education and a third pair of helping hands, this transition to parenting can be a more positive experience for everyone!
That's where a Postpartum Doula comes in!
The feeling of overwhelm is too much.
You feel you just can't even.
You just need some time for yourself and practice self care.
Everyone is obsessed with the baby and YOU need someone to see and listen to YOU.
You need someone to guide you or tell you that you are doing just fine.
Or when you just need some sleep.
We are here to support YOU in your postpartum journey.

"After a month of high anxiety, no sleep and pretty bad postpartum blues, we decided that we needed help. Enter our postpartum doula! She was receptive to our needs, what our routine was, what kind of extra help we needed. I called her my "safety net" and am so very thankful for her help transitioning us into our new way of life!”The Wiggins Family
