and issues you might have

sleep

allowing you to stay in bed and feed
- bottle feed your newborn so you can get a full night's rest
- diaper, soothe, and resettle your baby at night
- teach you about evidence-based, general newborn care
- provide babywearing instruction and expertise
- provide caring, nonjudgemental support

members or visitors
- engage and care for other siblings

I am a trained (certification pending) Postpartum Doula and certified volunteer La Leche League Leader here in Anchorage. My husband and I have the great privilege of raising three wild and beautiful sons. All of our babies were born in places where we had no other family nearby, and help during our newborn periods was scarce. My desire is to serve the families of Anchorage with gentleness and understanding of the early days and weeks, providing them with the time and space to rest, relax, recover, and bond together.
