I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been accepted to have a table at the 2019 Twin Cities Birth and Baby Expo!
This is a great event for anyone who is pregnant, has kids, or is planning to have a baby. And it’s family-friendly too! I hope to see you there.

A wonderful event featuring local businesses related to pregnancy, birth, and parenting as well as kid-friendly activities (face painting, storytime, and more!) and presentations/workshops.

Basically everybody who has kids knows the value of having help in those first few months after bringing baby home. Your family and friends love to come over and hold the baby or drop off a meal – but the first few weeks can feel like an endless whirlwind of visitors. Entertaining guests plus adjusting to life with a new little one can be draining and stressful! This is when you will be most thankful for your postpartum doula.
Birth is a time of intense feelings, both physical and emotional. There are big changes happening in your body as you prepare to welcome your baby into the world. It can feel overwhelming and scary, but having some positive sayings or mantras can help you to feel more prepared and confident. There are so many birth affirmations on Google and Pinterest, and I used Canva to create some of my own. Some women print them to display in the room while in labor, others read them as inspiration and motivation during their pregnancy. Having positive phrases that remind you of your strength and power will definitely help you stay positive!
Here are some of my favorite birth affirmations:
New mamas are dealing with a lot: feedings, recovery, sleep deprivation, and the wonder of their perfect new little one. You can make their days a bit brighter or easier with these products. They’re great for Mother’s Day, birthdays, the next baby shower you’re invited to, or holiday gift exchanges. Plus, they also make great treats to pamper yourself!
I hear this question at least once a week. Given that I didn’t even know what a postpartum doula was when my daughter was born, I’m not surprised! I enjoy answering questions and helping educate people about the importance of postpartum support! Here are some other questions I am often asked.
Ghosts, goblins, and spooky creatures of all kinds will roam the streets this Halloween – but maybe the scariest thing of all for new parents is the “witching hour.” Does the phrase send chills down your spine and make your hair stand on end? It doesn’t have to be that way!
