Many people are confused about the role of a postpartum doula. Often times they will mistakenly assume she is just a nanny, but she is so much more!

Dads,
How do you feel about your partner hiring a doula?
 
Dads often think we are there to replace them as the main support person for their child's birth. Nothing could be further from the truth!

We won't tell our clients' stories. Click here to find out why.

I used to write up our client's birth story after every birth and then write up a post with their permission. I refuse to do that any longer. Find out why.

When faced with difficult decisions, use this acronym to help you navigate your choices.

There are a lot of tough choices surrounding pregnancy, birth, and parenting. Make sure to use your BRAIN to sort through all the available options.

Did you know there were so many amazing #mocktail recipes? Ring in the new year with one of these amazing concoctions!
 
I wish I had known about these recipes when I was pregnant (through 3 ball drops). They look delicious! #newyearseve #mocktails #pregnancy

What is a New Years celebration without the obligatory toast at midnight? Have one of these beautiful mocktails and you'll ring it in with a smile.

I have worked with Cat extensively for almost 5 years. She has never waivered from her commitment to the women in the community, her professionalism, and her exceptional service. Her knowledge and dedication to continuing education as her role as an IBCLC and Infant Feeding Specialists goes above and beyond what is required. Her loving, caring presence is a soothing balm to those with questions and concerns regarding feeding and caring for their infant. She strives for excellence in the way she interacts with not only those she serves, but their families and other professionals in the community as well. Cat is an incredible asset in your breastfeeding journey and I am honored to call her both a friend and a colleague.
