had the pleasure to have Megan Davis as my postpartum doula for two weeks. After an emergency c-section giving birth to my late-term preemie, I was exhausted but I didn't realize how overwhelmed I would be with taking care of a newborn. I had taken a series of classes prior to my daughter's birth, but none of them completely prepare you for what it will be like once your baby arrives. The sleep deprivation and baby blues were challenging for me and when my husband returned to work Megan was a huge part of my success to transitioning to taking care of my daughter on my own. Megan is a great listener and non-judgemental. She both helped me to feel more confident in taking care of my daughter and was emotionally supportive to make me feel less anxious. She is a wealth of knowledge and provided many insightful tips and resources for me. As a mom of two children she can empathize with the challenges of being a new mother. Without asking she would make sure I was doing things to take care of myself, making me lunch, refilling my water bottle and accompanying myself and my daughter on short walks in the neighborhood. I highly recommend Megan to anyone in search of a postpartum doula. She is fabulous.
Having Megan's support during the weeks after our daughter's birth was wonderful. I had an unplanned C-section and several other obstacles that made the postpartum period more challenging than we'd anticipated, including difficulties with latching and nursing. Megan was calm, positive, and nurturing throughout, always offering gentle, helpful guidance. She was on-time, reliable, positive, and a joy to have around. I'll miss her support, but I'm very grateful that she has helped our family as we take these first tentative steps together. I'd highly recommend Megan to anyone expecting a new baby.

About me

I am a trained professional who has assisted hundreds of Seattle area families during the critical period after the birth of their baby, offering educational, emotional and practical support. I received my education through the DONA International approved Postpartum Doula course at Bastyr University's Simkin Center in 2007 and am certified through the Northwest Association of Postpartum Support (NAPS).

My goal is to help families have a smoother transition to parenthood by being a calm, knowledgable, and non-judgmental presence and by encouraging new parents to listen to their inner wisdom. I also connect parents to community resources that will help them gain the support that they need for a richer experience.

Being invited into your home to help care for your family during this special time is an honor to me. Caring for and nurturing newborns is one of the best benefits of my job, but even more than that I enjoy watching new parents learn to care for their newborns and become self-assured in their new roles.

In addition to being a doula, I have worked as a Newborn Group Facilitator for PEPS/Program for Early Parent Support since 2009. I also served at the PEPS GLBTQ Supplemental Group Leader for a year.

My own journey to parenthood began when my son was born in 2007. In 2010, my daughter came into our family. As a mother, I understand personally how challenging it can be to adjust to a new baby and the life changes that they bring to parents, whether they are your first or subsequent child.
