Health Precautions & Exposure
I will wear a mask at every in-home session, as well as wash/sanitize my hands often. I am also open to temperature checks as well as periodic testing when appropriate. I do not require families to wear masks, but I do ask them to sign a COVID-19 liability waiver that indicates mutual attempts to reduce risk and indicates that I will ask a few precautionary questions regarding their exposure prior to each service session.
Hello! My name is Maggie and I offer custom doula services tailored to meet your needs, whether in-home or virtually. As a doula, I bring enthusiasm, training, and my own personal experiences to the table. Outside of work, I love to spend time with my husband and son!
How do you help new parents?
The intention of my role as a postpartum doula is to validate and encourage your own parental choices with trust and respect- and without judgement. My role is to help foster an easier transition into parenthood through my services, which include: companionship, non-medical support with recovery, education and support surrounding either breastfeeding basics or formula feeding/bottle care, assistance with general newborn care and infant sleep, help with meal preparation and daily household maintenance, and guidance towards family adjustment for partners, siblings, and pets. I also offer a wide range of educational/support resources and referrals to providers and professionals, making it easier for you to navigate the weeks and months following birth.
Why did you pursue this career?
Following my own challenging experience adjusting postpartum, I realized that there is a much greater need for support for families than is generally offered by our society. I became a postpartum doula so that I may hold space for families to transition to their new family unit that I feel all parents deserve.
