postpartum doula services
Often there is so much preparation and excitement leading up to the birth of the baby, that we often forget that it really does take a villiage once the baby is home. Postpartum doulas are a great non-judgemental support and resource during the early weeks to hold the space for you to bond with your baby, learn to breastfeed, navigate becoming a parent and connecting with each other as a growing family.
"I loved Courtney’s presence so much as my birth doula, that I asked her to stay on as a postpartum doula. Her calm nature, pure intention and abundance of knowledge has impressed me and soothed me to a level I had not anticipated. I know my son will miss his naps in her arms."

"Having Courtney here was like having a friend (but with more knowledge) or a mother (but much younger and with fewer opinions) staying over to help care for our son. I could sleep between breastfeeding sessions knowing he was in the best and safest hands. Our son was always easily soothed and clearly comfortable with Courtney."
