“After birth there’s a sacred window of time. A time for complete rejuvenation of a woman’s physical, mental, and spiritual health. A time for deep, extended bonding with her newborn. The first 42 days after birth set the stage for her next 42 years.”
— Ysha Oakes
Congratulations, you’re becoming a mama!
Whether you’re getting ready to welcome your first child or your fifth, this is a sacred time in life, unlike any other.
I believe that when a baby is born, so is a mother. Both are delicate and strong, new and ancient, vulnerable and wise. They need support, and they need space. Quiet and comfort — the right kind of care.
Hi, I’m Jennifer, and I would love to be your postpartum doula!
The word “doula” comes from the Greek word doulē, which translates to female helper or maidservant. But to me, it is so much more.
A doula is someone who is there to witness you, offer emotional support, and put you at ease. She knows you and your family, and is a trusted source of help. She takes direction and intuits what is needed. She is nonjudgmental and compassionate. She is a partner as you go through this rite of passage.
Pregnancy can be all-consuming. And then, in a flash, it’s over! And you feel unprepared.
The early days of motherhood can be overwhelming. Emotional. Exhausting. Hard.
But they can also be magical!
A postpartum doula can help ease the transition. We were never meant to do this alone.
Early motherhood is a time of forgetfulness.
The infamous “mom brain” is actually nature’s perfect design for helping you learn and bond with your baby. This period of intense focus is an excellent time for OUTSOURCING!
You are doing the most important work — the work that only YOU can do!
Healing from birth, bonding with your baby, feeding your baby and yourself, and resting.
Imagine a time that is unhurried. Spontaneous. Timeless.
Doing what feels good in the moment and nothing more.
Traditional cultures around the world understand how to care for new mothers. But families in the U.S. are woefully unsupported.
There is a movement afoot. We are reclaiming motherhood.
I am currently offering complimentary, in-person prenatal consults for a limited time.
