What is a Postpartum Doula?

A Postpartum Doula is a trained professional whose primary purpose is to help mom and her whole family make a smooth adjustment during the postpartum period. Postpartum Doulas are prepared to provide non-judgmental physical, emotional, spiritual, informational, and practical support to the mother as well as her family. My main goal as a Postpartum Doula is not to take over complete care of the newborn, but instead is to support and educate the new parents on how to care for themselves and their newborn confidently as they take time to adjust and settle in to their new roles.

The needs of each family are unique and the support desired will vary. In order to best serve each family, I offer customized support. I am available to offer suggestions if you need help deciding on the amount of support needed and what that may look like for you. 

I serve the Santa Clarita Valley, San Fernando Valley, Simi Valley, Antelope Valley, Ventura, and surrounding areas.
