Family resources through a doula lens.

The nature of being a doula is based around family-centered support.  Not every family needs the same exact kind of support and referrals, and so I have carefully selected a variety of resources to help you along your journey.  

This list holds some of my favorite general resources I've curated together with you in mind.

For pregnancy, birth preparation, postpartum healing, and parenting.

Nonnie Talks about Pregnancy & Birth

Singing to your babe in utero is a great way for pregnant people, co-parents and siblings to bond.  Singing the same song to your baby is also an effective way to soothe your newborn baby.


The studies mentioned in this video were done with only cis-man partners, but some findings might carry over for birth partners and co-parents that do not identify as a cis-man.


If having extended family at your birth sounds comforting to you, this is a great video to share with them to prepare.
