Your Baby, Your Choices, Your Doula.

Paula J. NorcottLactation Counselor, Overnight Newborn Specialist, Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator, Labor Doula,

Leading support groups for over ten years, I have gained a clear understanding of what type of unbiased support parents desire.   This experience coupled with almost twenty five years of parenting my own five, very individual children has led me down this path of working with new and experienced families. With a goal of helping parents find their confidence and follow their gut, I see each family as unique. I will work to ensure you feel supported and cared for while you work to understand your new tiny human. I am a Certified Lactation Counselor, with sixteen plus years experience. A Lamaze Certified Child Birth Educator, Certified Labor Doula, Certified Postpartum Doula and Certified Coffee Snob. I love long walks on the beach... Ok! actually, it's sitting on my butt on the beach I love. I also enjoy binge watching The Handmaid's Tale while swearing at the screen, and hula hooping in my living room to obnoxious pop music. I specialize in working with those "higher needs" or "fussy" babies. Ya know, the ones who can't be put down ever and don't really seem to need sleep. I get it. Let's talk.
