It’s never too late for a postpartum doula. Evidence reveals that to fully integrate the physical and emotional changes of having a baby can take 2-3 years!

How it works
I work on an hourly basis. Currently I offer I sliding scale between $25 and $35 per hour. However, this is a heart-centered expression of my love for new families and I will work with you in any way possible. Click the Contact tab to get started.

Every family is unique. Ideally, we meet before the baby is born, so I can offer help as quickly as possible once you are home. In any case, I will arrive at your home ready to assist you with your needs on that day. Your needs, your moods, your baby, your home, and the seasons are all shifting with time; each new day we can discuss what would be most helpful.
