Frequently Asked Questions

What is a postpartum doula?

A postpartum doula is a person who provides non-medical support to a family in their home after the arrival of a new baby or babies. In practice this can look like talking through the joys and challenges of parenthood, caring for baby/ies so parents can rest, household help like dishes and laundry, and helping siblings adjust to their growing family. During this wonderful and intense newborn stage, a postpartum doula supports the whole family with evidence-based information, kindness, and helping hands.

What precautions are you taking with COVID?

It is of utmost importance to me to keep your family and my family safe. I am fully vaccinated and boosted, and at this time I am only working with vaccinated families.

When I'm in your home I wear a mask, remove my shoes, and practice frequent hand washing. I take precautions when I am out in the community as well. Please reach out if you have any further questions.

Where did you receive your training?

I have trained with DONA and DTI (Doula Trainings International). I am actively working toward postpartum doula certification with DTI.

I also bring my own experiences as a parent to this role. Since becoming a parent I have learned so much about patience, the importance of self-care, and that it's okay to ask for help.

Why Grow Together?

We are all learning and growing. With your newborn, you will see them grow and change before your very eyes. As parents, your love and confidence with this baby will also bloom. Those early weeks can, at times, be an overwhelming and isolating experience. I want you to know that you are not alone. With kindness and without judgment, I will come alongside your family to guide and support you.

You can do this.

We can do this.

Let's grow together.
