Postpartum Doula Serving Lincoln, NE
MOTHERS NEED JUST AS MUCH ATTENTION AS A NEWBORN, BECAUSE THEY, TOO,
HAVE JUST BEEN BORN.
What is a postpartum doula?
A postpartum doula is not meant to teach you how to become a mother…but to provide you the support and resources you need to become the best mother for your child. With the support of a postpartum doula, no new mom needs to deal with her difficult feelings alone.
Postpartum wasn't what I expected it to be...
My first maternity leave was not at all what I expected. Instead of snuggles and naps, it was filled with an unhappy baby who wanted to nurse 24/7. On top of that, I struggled with postpartum depression and anxiety that I tried to hide from the world. Navigating these challenges alone as a new mom was HARD.
On one particularly rough night, I commented to my husband "wouldn't it be cool if there was someone who could come home from the hospital to help us navigate this tiny human?!"
Turns out, that's actually a thing. So now I am that person helping new parents, like you, who are struggling with a postpartum transition that is harder than you thought it was going to be.

HEY, IT'S JESS!
I’m a boy mom to two wonderful souls and married to the most supportive husband ever. I love to move my body every day at the gym, or through a yoga practice. I learned to knit in December 2018, while pregnant with my first baby. I filled my maternity leaves with the best of the best tv shows- The Office, Boston Legal, Blacklist and New Girl, just to name a few.
