Hello, I am so thrilled that you and your partner are interested in finding a doula. You are already on a path of creating the birth that you desire. This rare and blessed event in your life will be filled with many surprises and having a caring supportive doula to assist you in all those unexpected turns is truly so important.

So, let me tell you a little about myself and my business Blossoming Mamas, Peaceful Babies. I am excited and honored to be working with mothers, fathers, siblings and newborns. As a beginning doula I want to gain experience by working with all types of families.

I am a mother of two boys and our family is expecting our third in mid July. I have many qualities that make a great doula: compassion, patience, enthusiasm and devotion.

Blossoming Mamas, Peaceful Babies offers both labor and postpartum doula services which includes but not limited to:

  • Labor Doula
  • Two prenatal visits
  • Assistance in writing a birth plan
  • Access to lending library
  • Support from early labor to first hours after birth
  • Two postpartum visits
  • Postpartum Doula
  • Breastfeeding assistance
  • Newborn care
  • Healthy meal preparation
  • Light housekeeping
  • Running errands
  • Overall warm and caring support for family especially the new mama.

I am also very interested in attachment parenting, cloth diapering and babywearing. My Sling Mistress service include trying on a number of different slings in the privacy of your home to ensure a comfortable and relaxing fit for both parents and baby. My labor doula rates are flexible and I offer my postpartum doula assistance at $25 per hour.

Please feel free to call or e-mail me if you feel I might be the doula for you and your growing family.

Many Blessings and Love-
