My lactation support includes education, hands on care, and baby weight checks. I'm presently working with Babymoon of Pacific Grove as a lactation counselor, and educator. Each visit is in the privacy of your own home, and on your babies feeding cue. Breastfeeding protects babies, the early breast milk is called colostrum (coh-LOSS-trum), or liquid gold. It is thick, yellow, and sweet like honey. This is the first breast milk that you make during pregnancy and just after birth. Your breast milk changes as your baby grows. Colostrum changes into what is called mature milk. I can help you through all the stages of breastfeeding.
My postpartum care models the beautiful cultures where new mothers & newborns are honored and given special attention. The postpartum doula is trained in postpartum adjustment, newborn characteristics, care, feeding, development, and the promotion of parent-infant bonding. I have experience in supporting families through their postpartum period, whether you have twins or a singleton. Coming into the home following birth, my role as a doula is to provide education, nonjudgmental support, companionship, and to assist with newborn care and family adjustment.
*Family Support During Your 1st Year*
I provide doula care for families in Napa, Saint Helena, San Francisco Bay, Santa Rosa, Winters, and Davis.
I guide you through a healthy pregnancy, birth & postpartum stage.
I believe in supporting new parents so they can support a new life with love & nurturing.
Doula is a Greek word for “woman’s servant.” A birth doula is a supportive companion professionally trained to provide physical and emotional support during labor and birth. My doula package comes with 3 pre-natal visits that help us get to know eachother, and build trust. Then I go on call for your family day or night. This is for questions, emotional support, and labor for your family. After your beautiful birth we have 4 postpartum visits to help continue to establish attachment, bonding with family, and the breastfeeding relationship.
