NURTURE MAMA DOULA CARE • KAMLOOPS, BC • 250-318-1463 •
Welcoming home a new baby is a time of joy and excitement, but it can also be overwhelming.
My mission as a DONA trained Postpartum Doula is to help moms and their families transition into their new lives with baby by offering nonjudgmental support, encouragement and evidence-based information so that they can parent confidently and enjoy the early days and months with their new baby.
A new mom deserves time to spend exclusively with her baby, and time to rest and recuperate without household chores on her mind. Parents benefit from having an experienced, knowledgeable person to support and guide them, and having a sympathetic ear from a trained professional is also helpful. Growing families find that balancing their attention between the new baby and older siblings is easier with extra help. Adoptive families and families welcoming twins or multiples also benefit from postpartum care. Postpartum care packages are completely customizable to meet your family’s needs and they also make great gifts.
