Heather Maine, BIRTH & POSTPARTUM DOULA
I aspire to provide parents with the skillset and support to have their birth and postpartum experience be something they move through feeling confident, informed and empowered. I was called to this type of work after several years of meeting new parents in the childcare world. As the person they were handing their babies off to for the first time, I saw and felt the amount of trust they had in me to be the one to keep their baby safe. Through this work, I noticed the lack of postpartum support available for parents, and how much they really needed it. I found myself being that support—it is something that comes naturally to me and I find incredibly important for the wellbeing of not only parents–but their babies as well.
