The Village Doula


Birth Support

Serving families all around the Twin Cities

Birth work has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. Becoming a mother myself at a young age, I was always so passionate about woman's health and childbirth. Minnesota has done incredible work in the birth world and doula work is on the rise. After serving so many families these last couple of years I have discovered what expecting families really need from me as a doula and the best ways I can support them. I have designed my birth services and packages to accommodate and surround my clients with the highest quality support possible. Take a moment to to learn about my services and what is included. I hope you find the answers you are looking for and I am looking forward to meeting you at our consultation.

Postpartum Support

In-home support you can count on.

Often we are so incredibly focused on preparing for the birth of a baby that we forget entirely about the transition home with that baby! As a postpartum doula, my work is to promote a healing and nurturing environment to the newly growing family. I will cook for you, care for your newborn and other children, assist in light housework, run errands for you and help guide you through getting to know how to care for your baby. I provide overnight care as well so that you can maintain healthy and healing energy. I  help implement positive routines and organization so that you feel confident each day with your new baby. Postpartum support can look a lot of different ways. It is the kind of support that you can truly customize to fit your exact needs in order to thrive. We don't always know what we need, until we need it.
