Parent-baby centered care to help your family integrate more softly into your 4th trimester. Postpartum doulas are your after-birth fairy godmothers. They are a source of non-biased support for you and your whole family as you transition into parenthood-- especially during the first days of baby's life. They are your well-rested extra set of hands when there might be a lot to juggle. Food for the family, feeding the baby, healing from birth, newborn care, home integration and organization and emotional support are just a few of the wonderful gifts they offer. Whether you prefer just a few hours of support or a package of many visits over time, these wonderful doulas are here to help.
Anna is happy to offer continued support to her birth doula clients and to new families who’d only prefer postpartum support, or have another doula for their birth. She will work with you from infancy through the 4th trimester, until new families feel good to be on their own and have found their groove. These visits focus on integrating everyone into this new lifestyle of being parents and caring for a newborn, and from the baby’s end, being a newborn! We will work out the best possible feeding routine for you and baby, eat nourishing food and unpack any feelings you might be experiencing. Anna can be with babe(s) while you take some “you” time to bathe, nap or get fresh air. All important things for new parents!
Her knowledge of the newborn time is based upon personal experience with her own child and witnessing the realities of the 200+ families she has worked with during this precious and transformational time. She realizes that each experience is truly unique, as each family operates differently. Anna hopes to offer you guidance, solutions, resources and bring a sense of normalcy to such a new time in one’s life.
