NEW TEAM MEMBER

temp-post-image

We are so proud to announce a new team member to our practice. As our practice continues to grow, it is important for us to ensure the support of all of our clients. As you only can imagine, Doula work is very hard with no time constraints. By having the right team, we are able to offer the best care possible within our practice structure. We are honored to introduce Rafeal Newport-Hewitt. With over 10 years of experience as a Doula and midwifery apprentice, Rafeal began her work in 2007 while attending a friend's birth. After witnessing this mother dig deep inside herself, with the support of a midwife and Rafeal, she knew this was my calling. Rafeal immediately set out to become a Certified Doula and Child Birth Educator. Her holistic, evidence based and spiritual approach to birth has allowed me to be with families in birth centers, hospitals and home. Rafeal has been a support for first time families, repeat families and families having multiples (twins). She's have attended planned C-sections, medicated births and non-medicated births. My focus is to support a family in having the best birth possible regardless of place. Working with so many families has allowed me to weave many different cultures, beliefs and backgrounds into the birthing experience. Rafeal truly has a love and passion for birth and feel honored that a family would choose me to support them in such a beautiful and important moment.

A Mother's Helper

As our practice grows, we are expanding services offered to our clients. One being, A Mother's Helper. Katelyn directly offers support to moms in their fourth trimester (postpartum period).

From Katelyn - "Technically not a Postpartum Doula because I’m not trained as one, however I do “Mother’s Helper” type of work for clients who need it.

The benefit to you is that my rate is much lower than traditional Postpartum Doulas .The fee charge $25/hour and am open to doing either over nights or during the day time, or a combination of both. I can take care of baby (swaddling, cuddling, soothing, feeding if bot...

A Response To The CDC News About Encapsulating Placentas

We’re sure by now you’ve all heard about a recent report put out by the CDC warning mothers against ingesting their placentas after childbirth. In this specific case, a mother in Oregon had been ingesting her encapsulated placenta, which was said to cause her newborn baby to continuously get sick. The report scared a lot of women and their families (rightfully so!) and we’re here to dispel some fears around it.Disclaimer: we believe wholeheartedly that encapsulating healthy placentas can be a wonderful benefit to postpartum mothers (link to good article discussing the benefits). We also offer this service to our doula clients and other women.Let’s unpack this specific case. To help us out, we checked out New Life ...

EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE!

Earlier this year I connected with an amazing Doula named Katelyn Davis who I felt embodied every aspect of what a Doula is. She was kind, compassionate, and felt strongly about normalizing birth. Over the course of getting to know her, I felt that she would make a great addition to the T.E.A.M I was building. Over multiple conversations, we both decided that our shared vision of the T.E.A.M, and empowering women throughout the childbirth process and beyond, would bring even more value to our clients if we joined together in partnership.
