Your birth has taken place and now, you’re a new parent - a new family! You’re off to a running start with a newborn all the while - an identity shift and routine of being a parent overcomes your world.

In the midst of learning so many new ways of living and of being with your infant, you somehow need to find the time to just be y-o-u. In between feedings with your babe, answering and learning to read their cues, helping to comfort them, loving them to sleep, bathing them + more - your time is fully invested in their being and of their becoming.

A postpartum doula comes into your experience as an extra set of compassionate hands to hold you, your babe, your household. Assisting you in this transition as you live a life with another being in your family. Nurturing your family as you learn to thrive together. Restoring your sense of normality as you investigate what that feels like for you. We mold the nest into independence so that when we leave you, you’re fulfilled in your role as a parent. Our goal is for you to gaze back on those initial moments with a new little bee so the buzzing that once felt overwhelming now exists as what is you and your lovely family.

Stephanie was empathetic, wonderful, and helpful. She was confident when she explained information to me, and explained things in a professional and friendly way. I felt like my voice and opinion was heard. I liked how I got more skills to stay relaxed during challenging times with my kids.

We had a wonderful experience with Brea. She was such a life saver when it came to taking care of our new baby overnight. We trusted her 100% to look after our little one and she did not disappoint. She was always on time and provided us with in depth reports the following morning so we knew exactly what went on while she was at our home. . I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone else. If we could afford it we would totally hire her to move in and help take care of our baby 24/7 she’s that good!
