Postpartum Doula Services
If your heart's desire is to cherish the first days & weeks - easing your transition into parenthood.... while receiving nurturing care combined with postpartum wisdom.... I invite you to explore wise woman postpartum doula care with me.
"After our baby was born, it was exceptionally helpful to have Debra's knowledge and experience available. She provided so much guidance - everything from proper breastfeeding to baby's sleeping, and just giving us the much needed break, by taking care of the baby - she definitely made our lives easier during those early days. I highly recommend Debra's services!"
The first weeks following birth are a time for recovery & bonding. Babies go through enormous changes adapting to life outside the womb and need plenty of holding & love. For both first time and experienced mothers, being taken care of while caring for their newborn is essential!

"Debra provided great postpartum support when we came home from the hospital. I was struggling with getting established with breastfeeding and she was able to reassure me and help me get on track almost immediately. Debra clearly is a wealth of knowledge and was able to provide sound insight to my many questions. Thank you!" Katie
