The Village You Need

Key Words: babies, prenatal, postpartum, home visits, breastfeeding

Mothers need to create their own village, to find their tribe.  You do not have to "do it all," nor should you. I want you to feel empowered as a mother. It takes time to get to know your baby and find your rhythm.  There is so much conflicting information, it is a huge benefit to have someone guiding you, seperating fact from opinion, and finding what makes sense for you. As a Postpartum Doula, I assist new moms and their families by providing support, care and evidence based information to help you feel confident as a parent. My goal is to empower you to make decisions that are right for you and your family. As a Lactation Counselor, I provide the support needed in the crucial first few weeks of breastfeeding to get you off on the right foot and set you up for success. This support can come in person, by phone, or by email. I can help you troubleshoot any issues you are having and provide tips and tricks to help you feel confident and comfortable.
