The Village Doula
Stephany Abrego, CD
Motherhood is powerful. The moment we become pregnant we start a transformation of the body and spirit. Women are designed to do this. Our bodies are so incredibly capable. Having a passion for that fact is what lead me here to become The Village Doula. I wanted more women to feel just as powerful and capable as they naturally are. I wanted parents-to-be, to channel that transition, prepare themselves, educate themselves and to be guided down this new and challenging path by someone who they could trust. Someone who can give them that safe space to feel vulnerable, be empowered and gain the unfaltering confidence that they need. Mothers should not fear their bodies but revel in them. Father's should feel welcome and in-touch with this experience, feel of use and contribute to this life changing experience. This is what I believe and as a your doula, I will help you accomplish and protect that.
Informative and Compassionate
Take some times to look through the service and packages that I have designed to serve you best. Preparing for to become a new parent comes with so many emotions. Everyone experiences their journey their way and need to be supported based on what they connect with the most. I hope to take the walk with you and not only show you compassionate support but to prepare you as well. You may not realize the extent of what a doula truly can offer and honestly, it's not the same for everyone. So while two people may choose the same service, the experience is unique and their own. My dedication is to mold myself to you and what matters most to you and be whoever you need me to be so that you feel supported. Let's do this!
Helping to Adjust
Adjusting to having a newborn at home can be a challenge. The postpartum period is an extremely delicate and vulnerable stage of a new mother's life. Having support and assistance adjusting to your new role as a mother will ease your mind and keep you grounded. Doula's can offer a very broad range of support and I have created multiple package options that will best serve you. Postpartum services are flexible and can be scheduled as needed. Sometimes we don't know what we need, until we need it.
There are so many changes happening in a woman's body. Breastfeeding can feel like a mountain to climb. But with loving support and education, you can tackle this job with joy and confidence.
