About

Sacred Nest provides services to new parents for postpartum and breastfeeding support. We are passionate about empowering women and believe in the mother’s intuition and the ability of families to make healthy decisions when they are supported and feel safe.

Postpartum Doula’s are trained specifically to serve the mother and her family throughout the postpartum transition period. We offer a non-judgemental presence in the home and are trained in breastfeeding support, personal mother-care guidance, newborn care techniques, baby-wearing as well as emotional and informational support for the family including connections with community programs and other perinatal professionals, if requested.

With empathetic listening, honest communication, compassion and nurturing care-giving, we provide information on emotional and physical recovery from childbirth, infant soothing and coping skills, family adjustment and assistance with light household tasks. We are fully dedicated to your family to validate and enhance your intuitive ability to nurture and encourage you to develop and implement your own parenting style.

Our Philosophy:

  • Protect, nurture and enhance bonding
  • Empower Mom; increase self-esteem and confidence
  • Provide continuous support
  • Provide evidence-based information

 

“The support of a postpartum doula has been proven to ease breastfeeding and encourages mother-infant bonding, resulting in a healthy positive family. A postpartum doula’s support also decreases the chances of postpartum depression.” – unknown
