Motherhood is a long journey...

All too often, moms feel as though they have to do it all alone, especially now that our village looks so different than the villages of generations past. As The Village Doula, I will provide families with the support that our community sometimes lacks. Welcome.

The Postpartum Doula offers professional, nonjudgemental support, companionship and evidence based information in several areas.
