Congratulations, you just had a baby! Now what?


Becoming a parent is full of questions: Am I doing this right? Is it supposed to be that color? Did I totally mess this up already? Will I ever sleep again?

We know that adjusting to this new phase can be stressful, but with an experienced doula by your side – it does not have to be. Nurtured Beginnings was born from the idea that postpartum is not only about the new baby, but the entire family. We lovingly call postpartum the fourth trimester, because it is a time of transition for everyone. You’re not only learning how to keep your baby fed and happy, but you’re allowing their personality to blossom, learning how to support your partner during something they’ve never experienced before, and entering a new phase of your own growth.

Nurtured Beginnings doulas are trained and experienced professionals who are there to offer physical, emotional, and informational assistance to new parents during the weeks and months following childbirth. Our aim is to provide whole family support that helps everyone transition smoothly into their new roles. Yes, partners matter too! Your partner plays a big role in the support process so your doula makes sure to facilitate communication and encourage everyone to play an active role in caregiving, fostering a sense of unity and shared responsibility.

Think of your doulas as your personal tour guides on this journey. They’ve stepped into hundreds of different postpartum experiences and are always available to point you in the right direction. When you have a trusted doula by your side you’ll receive evidence-based information on topics such as infant sleep, developmental milestones, and self-care for parents. All of the guidance with none of the judgement.

We believe we can go beyond just surviving during postpartum. A healthy, whole, and confident postpartum is possible! Bottle or Breast, Sleep training or not, Crib or Bassinet, you deserve a Nurtured Beginnings Doula.
