Pregnancy, childbirth, and the newborn stage are hugely emotional work. Of course, there are many professionals available to take care of your medical needs, but a doula can be a source of continuity, comfort, and empowerment, as well as providing valuable evidence-based information as you move through the different stages of becoming a mother.
As your doula, we can conduct virtual Prenatal Visits, doctor's appointment debriefings, and regularly scheduled emotional check-ins before and after you have your baby. Maybe you just need to talk it all through. It is my job and my joy to listen, to help you process your emotions, to manage information overload, and to help you find your footing in motherhood, wherever you are!
Virtual Postpartum Support
Four weeks of one-on-one postpartum support, with regular video chats and anytime messaging and email, tailor-made for you and your little one!
Ready for Baby!
A 4-week online course to prepare you for your physical and emotional recovery from childbirth, and help you feel calm, capable, and confident as you settle in with your newborn, all without the information overwhelm!
In-Home Doula Services
Growing, birthing, and nurturing a baby with your body is really hard work! It's hard on your body, it's an emotional and hormonal rollercoaster, and everyone in your house will need to time to adjust and get comfortable with a new set of routines and all the baby gear you've accumulated. Maybe you are determined to bounce back quickly and return to work or maybe you are looking forward to a long, comfortable, and contemplative recovery.
I can help you get the most out of your postpartum period with the services listed here. Or pick and choose for a package perfectly suited to you, and we'll try to make it happen. Your needs are my priority!
In-Home Postpartum Doula services are available anywhere on the Kitsap Peninsula.
We can meet to work through any of these topics, or more! Childbirth or birth plan preparation, breastfeeding 101, emotional self-care and postpartum recovery, cloth diapering and baby carriers, or nesting and meal prep help. Whatever it takes to get you feeling ready and relaxed.
