The newborn stage can be a lot to handle for even the most seasoned parents. Not only are you trying to meet all of your baby’s needs while existing on almost no sleep, but you’re in the midst of recovery yourself.

Postpartum doulas are here to offer compassionate care that lets you make the most out of these months. If you could use some assistance, I would love to tell you about Portland postpartum doulas dedicated to making the newborn stage a little more magical.
