Feeding Support 

I can help with all forms of infant feeding. For breastfeeding I help with positioning, latch, comfort and referring you to a lactation consultant or counsellor when required. 

Pet Adjustment

Worrying how pets will adjust to a new baby is very common and understandable. I can help with walking, feeding, playing and connect you to a trainer to help with the adjustment.

about 

Birch trees are known for their resilience and adaptability. They are a symbol of rebirth, new beginnings and growth. 

My name is Tess, supporting you through your fourth trimester I will hold space for who you were before the birth of your new baby, and help you on your journey after they arrive. 

When a family is born or enlarged it is a profound and permanent life change for the entire unit.  As a postpartum doula, my role is to care for you after you bring your new bundle(s) home. I do so with empathy, evidence-based knowledge, hands-on assistance, reliable referrals and whenever possible, humour.

About

How I can help

Sleep Support 

Your rest, relaxation and sleep are so very important to your entire family in the early days. My role can be to care for your little one while you catch some much needed rest. 

Newborn Care 

I am able to guide you through your first days of diaper changes, bathing, clothing, cord care and more for your little one. 

Feeding Support

Sibling Adjustment 

I can help you carve our time time with older siblings. Or I can plan activities, or involve them in the newborn care/household help so you have time alone or with baby.

Household Help

Healthy snacks, light household chores and general help around the house are all things I can assist your family with. Emptying dishwasher, putting on a load of laundry, taking out the garbage full of diapers. S'all good.

Testimonials

"I wanted to prepare for my fourth trimester with the same thought and care I did for my pregnancy. I connected with Tess early on and it took a huge weight off my shoulders knowing that no matter what happened in my labour/delivery, she would be supporting me once baby was earth side. Once baby was here, Tess was my human lighthouse. I looked forward to her every visit, counting down the hours. Tess helped with all manner of housework but more importantly, to me, she supported me becoming a mom. Feeding me, giving me permission to nap, coaching me until I was confident enough to take both my baby and a dog for a walk. She meets you at your most vulnerable and leaves you feeling like the capable, loving mom you always dreamed of being. And that is the mom your baby needs. I could not recommend Tess enough and will be forever grateful for our time together. "
