As a CAPPA Certified Postpartum Doula, I support families during the first few months with their new baby, aka the “4th trimester”. My services include education about newborn care, physical recovery support, infant feeding and much more. I can be an extra set of hands while “mothering the new mother” and a safe space to process the birth and discuss their excitement and fears around becoming a new parent. I can connect families to local resources and suggest ways to get to know other parents. My interactions with a family evolve as the needs of the family change. Building confidence and a sense of empowerment in the parents is my ultimate goal.
I have worked with dozens of local families as a postpartum doula and a facilitator of a New Moms’ group. I also work educate the community about the resources available to families in the perinatal year through NAMMA Families and my role on the First Connections Advisory Board. My husband and I are raising our two children, Anna and Lucas, in Maynard, MA.
