My name is Heather and I live in the small town of Alfred, Maine. My husband and I have two adult daughters, an energetic chocolate lab, and one lazy ginger cat. On days off, you can find me walking the dog, going for a hike, snuggling the cat, or soaking up the sun (when it’s warm enough to be outside)!
I am a postpartum doula and lactation counselor who is incredibly passionate about supporting families in the transition of bringing home a new baby. Whether you’re a new or experienced parent, having a new baby in the home requires adjustment and a supportive village.
As your doula, I’m there to give a listening ear, provide another set of hands to care for your infant while you nap, supply evidence based information on feeding, or work in the kitchen to make meals for the whole family.
I’m located in Southern Maine and available to serve families from York to Portland, Maine as well as Seacoast, NH and surrounding areas. Contact me today to schedule a FREE consult!
Physical support includes light housekeeping tasks such as getting laundry caught up, doing dishes, providing meal prep, and general tidying.
Listening to the birth story, encouraging your transition into parenthood, screening for mental health concerns, and building confidence in baby care or self care are ways I support new parents emotionally.
I provide non-medical guidance in newborn care, breastfeeding/feeding, as well as in baby wearing. soothing, and sleep.
