Why did you decide to become a postpartum doula?

I realized that the support families had when my grandmothers generation was having babies no longer existed, because families weren’t in close proximity to each other, people moved so frequently so you often didn’t have long lasting relationships with your neighbors, and life became so fast moving. Being able to provide the support that every family deserves, and doesn’t know they are missing, is so rewarding.

What do you love the most about supporting families in the postpartum period?

Many people think I do postpartum work because I love babies, and I do. But what I love more is helping families feel confident in their new roles through education and support.

Why are you most excited to work at New Kind?

I’m excited to be able to expand my reach virtually and support more families through New Kind!

Your favorite thing about the work you do?

It’s so rewarding to be a family’s “person” as they learn to navigate their new roles!
