The first few days, weeks and months after your baby arrives can feel like a whirlwind of new parent learning curves, conflicting emotions, and exhaustion. During this vulnerable and emotional period, it’s important for your new family to feel supported so you can focus on rest and bonding as a family.
Our Doula service can provide this type of support.
Our Postpartum Doulas are Bronwyn Addico, Melissa Bowman, Kathy Finney, and Maggie Hilton.
Imagine after several sleepless nights, having your Doula arrive and send you to bed. She watches your new baby for you. When you wake up from a well-deserved nap you smell dinner cooking in the oven. The piles of laundry that’s been stressing you out have been folded and put away, and your baby is happy.
Imagine your Doula comes over in the late evening. She makes sure you have a bath with postpartum herbs to soothe your healing bottom. You are so relaxed you can breastfeed your baby easily – for the first time that day. Your Doula tucks you in and holds your baby for the next several hours so you and your partner can sleep. If the baby is hungry, she wakes you up to nurse and then takes your baby back so you can keep sleeping. You feel glorious when you wake up hours later with the first decent sleep you have had since your baby was born.
Imagine feeling nervous about giving your baby their first bath, or being concerned about a possible diaper rash, or feeling scared about each step of new parenting. Your postpartum Doula is only a phone, text, or email away. She can advise, reassure, and help you feel calm and empowered.
Don’t just imagine!
All of these scenarios are real-life examples of how we have helped former postpartum clients. Our postpartum Doula service can make all the difference in your healing, adjusting to becoming a parent, and your breastfeeding success!
Because every mother and family has different needs, our doula services are tailored to your circumstances and preferences.

“We are so grateful for Bronwyn and Maggie! Bronwyn was so helpful after I came home from the hospital. She gave me all the important information I needed for formula feeding and patiently answered all of my new mom questions. They both helped me with my housework and gave me the time I needed to take care of myself. They are wonderful women who made our experience a lot better. Honestly, I can’t even put into words how grateful we are for your help. Thank you for everything.” – Stephanie K.

“Thank you for everything. Your attention to my needs and our baby’s needs helped me to sleep well while you were here watching our little girl. Being able to get the reassurance we needed for all of our questions was invaluable. And having someone who I could talk to about the birth experience helped me immensely. I can’t thank you enough for your time and what a difference it made in the first two months after birth. I am so grateful for everything!” – E.C.
“Your support was everything I needed. During postpartum, I went through the stress of having a baby in the NICU and not getting the bonding experience I had envisioned. Having you to talk to was so helpful and I will never forget all the words of encouragement during such a difficult time. If you want to feel empowered and come out with a positive experience I would highly recommend a doula.” – Lynley O.
