One common thread among parents is to be the BEST! You have read the books. Talked to family and friends. Decorated the nursery and SOON if not already, your baby will be here.
Don’t get lost in the sea of overwhelming information and advice! Get support with newborn care, breastfeeding, sleeping, crying/soothing and your mental health.
Colleen will help you prepare, give you practical tips and set realistic expectations. She will help you feel calm and confident as you learn all about your new baby.
Colleen is an RN and postpartum doula with 20 years experience working with families as they transition to life with a newborn. She is also a certified lactation educator and can assist with many breast feeding issues, challenges or concerns you may have. In addition, Colleen holds a Perinatal Mental Health Certification (PMH-C), enhancing her ability to support emotional and psychological well-being during the perinatal period. There are other good doula options in Tucson, but none have the same knowledge, quality, skill and commitment to service. With that said, the single biggest thing that sets Colleen apart, is her passion for what she does. Helping families navigate life with their newborn(s) is what she loves more than anything in the world. Because she has aligned her personal passions into what she does, her clients are the ultimate beneficiaries.
Once you sense Colleen’s passion and expertise in the very first conversation, you will know she is the right doula choice for Your Family’s Journey.
