POSTPARTUM DOULA SERVICE
As a Postpartum Doula and expert in normal adjustment during the 4th trimester, Gretchen works with families throughout one of the most exciting and stressful (and sleepless!) times of their lives. Through an extensive intake process, the needs of the family are determined and a plan is put in place to enable recovery from birth, rest, nourishment, and helping the family bond with the newborn. Basically, you have an extra set of experienced, helping hands! Gretchen does this with a compassionate heart and nurturing hands.
