With a goal of helping parents find their confidence and follow their gut, Paula sees each family as unique. She works to ensure parents feel supported and cared for while they work through labor and birth, and/or work to understand their new tiny human. Paula is a Certified Lactation Counselor, with sixteen plus years experience. A CAPPA Certified Child Birth Educator, Certified Labor Doula, Certified Coffee Snob, Postpartum Doula and Postpartum Placenta Specialist.
