From my own experience of recovery and adjustment after childbirth, and the recognition of the huge transition that a woman and her family make, I realized how valuable extra support is during the postpartum time. During this tender, exciting and exhausting time I love to provide this much needed support. I am DONA trained in postpartum care and have been providing this service since 2003.

My services extend to all members of your family to help ease the transition.
My support includes:
Help with physical and emotional recovery from birth
Information on infant feeding including breastfeeding support
Assistance with newborn care and soothing techniques
Practical assistance such as preparing meals and running errands, nursery organization and performing light household duties
Teaching new parents coping skills and self-care
Making appropriate referrals when necessary
Moxibustion and Reiki are available.

I have extensive twins experience and work only day times during the week.
