My services during the COVID-19 pandemic: I'm still here for you!
HAVE A NEWBORN?
Currently, I am supporting families in-person with strict safety measures or virtually. Read more about my postpartum doula services below.
I am trained in Safety and Infection Control and Prevention and my goal is to provide safe and supportive care during these uncertain times. Please contact me to learn more about my strict safety measures and how I can support your family!
A new baby transforms your world. My postpartum doula support can help.
You are home with your baby, now what? Newborns need a lot of love and attention. And so do the parents! You've heard of the saying 'put your own oxygen mask on first before helping others'? Caring for a newborn is magical but also demanding not to mention exhausting. I can help guide you through the adjustment by providing caring support and the information you need to know. I help families so they can thrive in the postpartum period through nourishing and supportive care.
Postpartum doula care looks different for each family and my goal is to care for you so that you can thrive and care for your family.
As an experienced postpartum doula, I work with you to determine the best ways I can support you and your family. Postpartum doula support could include caring for your baby while you rest, feeding support, evidence-based information on mother and baby care, babywearing, help with older siblings, meal preparation and light housekeeping such as laundry and offering resources as needed.

"Erin was incredibly supportive postpartum. She helped me with my little one and also provided me with a workout weekly that I could engage in. The workout was awesome, it always took my postpartum body into consideration and I felt myself getting stronger and stronger each week. Erin was very body positive and I never felt self-conscious working with her. "

"Erin checked in with me the day after my son was born and continued to be there for me whenever I had questions during the first few weeks home with my baby. She came over for a postpartum follow-up visit and my son was so great with her that I booked several more postpartum care sessions so that I could get some rest knowing that my baby was in good hands. Erin is knowledgeable, attentive, thoughtful, and caring.

"As first-time parents, we were overwhelmed. When Erin started coming to offer postpartum support, everything got easier. I'd been pumping for weeks, but Erin helped me adjust my positioning and latch so I could start breastfeeding. She showed us how to wrap the carrier properly and gave us tips to deal with our baby's fussiness and digestive issues. She could always calm our son down and get him to nap like a champ, even on his fussiest days -- and somehow she found time to tidy up the kitchen and fold the laundry!"
