The word doula originates from Greece and translates into the meaning: a woman who serves.
As a postpartum doula my time is spent differently than a nanny or baby nurse. I am not a specialist, I am a generalist providing informed support, hands on care, and community resources for my clientele. More specifically, I am focused on the needs for mother and baby to thrive harmoniously in the family circle. Which includes my attention toward physical and mental adjustments occurring in all members of the postpartum family. I thoroughly enjoy cooking and can prepare nutritious meals to be eaten fresh or to be frozen for later.
I also offer therapeutic bodyworkand specialize inpregnancy massage.
Mothering the mother is a term used to describe the work I do. Every family operates differently and experience's different area's in need of extra attention. I am able to assist family structure whilst sharing problem solving information. My hopes are for women and families to make confident decisions that best support their art of parenting.
