Postpartum Doula & Lactation Counseling offers new mothers and families much needed support, grounded in the belief that life-changing events are opportunities for personal transformation. Motherhood and the addition of a new family member changes the dynamics in one’s life and offers an opportunity to adopt new strategies for handling additional responsibilities and stresses in your life. Being able to provide you with what you need to get an early start on a healthy sacred bond with your child is my goal.
Angelique’s postpartum support originates with the belief that the mother needs to be nurtured and cared for so that she can be as present and rested as possible to bond with her baby.
Angelique wants to make this transition (and transformation!) as smooth as possible for new mothers. With her support and care, Angelique will see to all needs (physical and emotional); model baby care techniques, provide lactation support (if you are breastfeeding) help to integrate other family members and do small household tasks.

Twenty-three years of experience as a mother and with over 30 nieces/nephews, along with my doula clients, I share the collective wisdom of many others and babies.
For centuries, mothers and fathers benefitted from experienced family/
community members on hand to help them transition to having a new baby.
