From a Mom of a toddler and newborn
After the birth of my first son and underestimating the needs of the postpartum period, I knew that I wanted a different experience for my second child. Erika as our postpartum doula was perfectly the solution we needed! Erika anticipated what I needed before I even knew myself — the precise thing a postpartum brain needs!! Whether it was holding the baby while I napped, washing dishes, preparing a nutritious meal or a sitz bath for me, sharing knowledge about breastfeeding or newborn cues, I felt safe and cared for by Erika. Her energy and presence were reassuring, not to mention her incredible intuition and healing nature, which put me and my infant son (my husband and older son, too!) at ease. Anytime Erika was in our home, or even just knowing that she would be back again soon, I felt so confident and secure. My second postpartum experience could not have been more different than my first -restful and peaceful, thanks to Erika as our postpartum doula - the absolute best gift to our family!
