Postpartum Doula

No matter if this is your sixth child or your first, it’s almost a guarantee that the time immediately following bringing home a new baby is intense. Amazing intense, hard intense, sleep deprived intense, magical intense. Anything that makes this intense time a wee bit easier, is a good idea. That’s what a Postpartum Doula is all about!

 

As Postpartum Doulas, we aim to help your family ease into life with your newborn a little more smoothly. With experience and knowledge, we are able to help with a little bit of everything. This level of support means you can spend more time enjoying your new baby without sacrificing the rest and care you yourself need. You can’t pour from an empty cup – so let us fill it!
