I embrace and support all family structures, with no assumptions or judgement. I would particularly like to use my doula services to reach out to the LGBTQ community and those who are parenting without a partner. These families often find more challenges in navigating the maternity care system.
If you are approaching parenting without a partner, you may find you want a doula to provide some extra support whether you are intentionally a one parent family or this was not in your plans. How many parents are in a family does nothing to determine the love and care that it contains!
I would also be excited to support families who are using surrogacy and/or adoption. A child joining your family, whatever that journey looks like, is a momentous and often challenging time. I would be happy to discuss how doula care could support you on that journey.
