Postpartum Support In Your Home
**NOTE: In light of current local policies and recommendations regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), virtual doula support is now available! Consultations, prenatal & postpartum visits, labor support, babywearing consultations and the Evidence Based Birth® Childbirth Class are also available virtually.**
The first few weeks with your new baby are filled with incredible joy and wonder as you welcome a new member into your family. This is also a time of great change and transition, coupled with recovery from pregnancy and childbirth. The role of a postpartum doula is to help you navigate this transition smoothly, feeling supported rather than overwhelmed by the change.
