My role as your Postpartum Doula is to help you focus solely on healing, resting, and soaking in your new baby and your ohana. In-home nurturing looks different for each mother, however, I most commonly serve mothers and their ohana's by doing the following: Mother support, infant care, older sibling bonding support, laundry, light household cleaning, and emotional support. You will also have full access to How to Thrive Postpartum, an online hub for support and nourishment for your mind and body.
