The first weeks immediately postpartum are a wonderful time, but can also be very overwhelming. I offer emotional, physical and logistical support (cooking, cleaning, etc.) in your recovery and transition to motherhood so you can spend your time and energy bonding with, and getting to know your newborn.

Dawn of Life Doula Services
Serving southeastern Michigan

The postpartum period is a time of transition, learning, growing, loving and, sometimes frustration. Our goal is to help families find their way through this challenging time by supporting their own parenting instincts. We also help with practical household issues — dishes, cooking, light cleaning etc., as well as baby care, recovery and breastfeeding.
