Postpartum is a word we use to describe a very special stage of life after having a baby. It is a time of vulnerability, new life, beauty and often great struggle. I support my clients postpartum with a visit after I attend their birth, and often by answering questions via texts and emails for some time after that.
The amount of support each family may need varies, and some would benefit deeply in having the additional resources. Postpartum doulas are trained professionals who support the new family in their adjustment period. I have included here on this page some professional resources I know and trust.
Hello I am Amanda!
I am a postpartum doula serving Reading and Berks County, and a member of DONA International. My love of the birth world and my own postpartum experience inspired me to empower and support other families during their postpartum period. I am the daughter of a birth doula, so from a very young age birth has held a special place in my heart. I am knowledgeable in Benkung Belly Binding, cloth diapers, newborn care, breastfeeding basics, infant soothing and provide emotional and physical support!
