I believe that nurturing mothers is the single most important work in our culture.
Through working with mothers, babies and their families, I have seen how pregnancy can be a time of amazing personal transformation, and I saw how much better women did when they had support. Bringing a new little person into the world is pretty amazing and sometimes overwhelming?
You can do it.
Here's how I can help:
provide continuous support throughout labor and birth,
encourage immediate mother and baby skin-to-skin contact,
support baby-led breastfeeding
nurture you after you bring your baby home
provide sleep support for mother and baby
prepare nutritious meals
perform Thai yoga bodywork
share resources, books, articles, videos, and websites,
discuss birth options,
offer childbirth education
Nancy is incredibly adaptable. From tea recommendations to suggestions for labor positions to the latest articles on group B strep to the amazing photos she took of both of our babies as they were born, our birth experiences were better for her being there. She brings the experience of a grandmother, comfort of a close friend, and knowledge of a medical professional to her work. We are so fortunate to have had her as our doula with both of our children and to know she is still there if we need her. ~L.M. and R.E.
