Bringing a new life into the world is one of the most joyful and rewarding experiences that you can face in your lifetime. With that being said, it also includes many challenges that can be overwhelming as a new parent. Whether you're a first-time parent or have experienced childbirth before, the postpartum period can be a very challenging time.
From providing guidance on breastfeeding and infant care to offering a listening ear and a comforting presence, Kristin the Doula is there to help you every step of the way. She can help you adjust to your new role as a parent, while also ensuring that you are taking care of yourself.
What is a Postpartum Doula?
A postpartum doula provides physical, emotional, and practical support to new parents during the postpartum period, which is typically the first few weeks or months after childbirth. My role is to help parents adjust to their new roles, facilitate bonding with their baby, and provide guidance on newborn care and feeding. I can assist with household tasks such as laundry and meal preparation, as well as providing emotional support. A postpartum doula can be especially helpful for parents who do not have a strong support system or who may be experiencing challenges with their mental or physical health.

Kristin was absolutely wonderful. She started helping us when the twins were around 6 weeks old, coming multiple nights a week all the way up to about 4 1/2 months old. She invaluable to us as we navigated our first experience as parents, twin parents to boot. We were exhausted and those nights she showed up gave us small reprieves that enabled us to get some much needed rest. We will be forever grateful for Kristin's kind and compassionate care. We have already told her that she is welcome to visit us anytime, especially because we want the twins to know her as they grow older. If you are looking for a doula, Kristin is the way to go. We love you Kristin!
