After her first child was born, Rae realized just how isolating and scary it can be (in addition to the excitement and joy!) to suddenly be responsible for a small human. The immense pressure she felt to feed, dress, and console her baby a certain way was met with anxiety and uncertainty. Aside from one doctor visit six weeks postpartum, Rae was responsible for seeking out her own breastfeeding and newborn care support
From then on, she made a vow to help families with during their fourth trimester, so they can spend their valuable time bonding and not worrying.
Rae has made it her mission to provide judgment-free, evidence-based care for families, so they can spend time bonding with baby and not worrying. She is certified to be your researcher, your advocate, your confidant, and most importantly— there when you need her.
When Rae is not doula-ing, she’s taking classes to finish her certification to be a Breastfeeding Specialist, publishing poetry, and spending time with her family.
