Postpartum Support

*****Not Currently taking on postpartum clients at this time*****

Each postpartum shift is tailored to the immediate needs of you and your family.  Support includes care for the birther, care for the newborn, and care for the new family. Postpartum doulas are up to date with the latest research and information regarding postpartum recovery and newborn care.
