I first learned about the role of a postpartum doula when my brother and his partner needed physical support after the birth of my nephew. I switched from a retail career to providing emotional and physical support for new families in the greater Seattle area. Since 1999, I have been helping new parents navigate the steep learning curve of life after baby arrives. Multiples, c-sections, lack of family support, lactation , sleep challenges for babies and parents,as well as Postpartum Mood Disorders can make the joy of a new life harder to access! I provide a resource for skill building, problem solving and a calm and patient presence to make the first months go more smoothly.
I am certified through the NW Association for Postpartum Support. I have had continuing education in Lactation Support and have focused on sleep issues for both babies and their parents for many years, studying under two national sleep experts- Kim West (The Sleep Lady) and Dana Obleman (The Sleep Sense Program). I offer both overnight doula services and sleep consulting to create healthy habits and to solve problems in older babies. My sleep consulting services are tailored to each families individual needs and use the most gentle techniques as well as education to help parents achieve the best rest for their baby.
