Why Hire a Postpartum Doula?
Having a baby can be exhilarating, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming. Birthing my son 20 years ago was the most empowering experience of my life. Soon after our birth I felt isolated, overwhelmed and exhausted. I know now these feelings can be quite common.
Getting proper support navigating your way into parenthood (or managing your expanding family), will help ensure a smooth transition.
Doulas are non-medical specialized companion care providers who N.E.S.T new moms; Nurture, Empower, Support and Teach.
My aim is to empower new parents in finding their way through this challenging time.
Who Is Doula TA?
I am an all-in parenting advocate and coach delivering specialized expert care and training. I’ve had a fulfilling 25+ year career as a professional educator focused on family wellness.
Years ago, I had the privilege of going to Peru and speaking with dozens of new moms on the benefit of pre and post-natal nutrition and breastfeeding. This experience deepened my commitment to support & empower new moms in their pursuit to raise healthy children.
I believe nurturing strong moms, healthy families and caring communities brings us all into a more life-affirming world.
Being an intimate, caring, aid to you in your fourth trimester (the 12 weeks following the birth), is an honor and privilege I take to heart.
How Does a Postpartum Doula Benefit YOU?
Support can look different to each new mom. Some ways I can support you include:
TIPS for New Moms
Sleep when Baby Sleeps
Despite hearing this from everyone, you may be tempted to catch up on laundry, food prep, or picking up around the house while baby naps. But your sleep is critical – especially in the first several weeks while recovering from birth. Let ME do those tasks for you while you get that much-needed R&R.
Keep the Water Flowing
(but not overflowing!)
Hydration is critical when nursing. Keep a Camelback or other pouch type water container in your bed so you will always have access to water, and no worries about spilling!
Most clients find a 8-12 week support package ideal.
I am also available as a parent consultant by the hour virtually.
Let’s arrange time to explore your needs to discuss what support ideally looks like for you.
