To the new fathers

So, you’re a brand-new father.

Or you will be very soon.

Perhaps you’ve been through this stage in life before; you already have children and you have some insight into what’s about to go down, and how your life is going to change (again).

Or maybe this is your first time, and you have no idea but you’re excited for the journey.

Are you worried about returning to work, and how both you and your partner will cope? Would you feel more at ease with this transition if you knew there was someone caring for them, helping them rest and recover by providing nourishing food, company and help? Someone else to make sure they have sleep and support?

Would you like to come home at the end of the day and know your partner has had a decent nap, a decent conversation, and the laundry that had been piling up is done?

If you’ve answered yes to some or all of these questions, the professional you need to find is a Postpartum Doula. We do all these things and more for a new family, giving you the peace of mind that you and your partner is supported physically, emotionally and spiritually as you undertake one of the biggest learning curves a family can undertake.

Success! You're on the list.
