Postpartum Doula Services

Postpartum Doula Services

Joyful Start services Philadelphia and its Pennsylvania suburbs*COVID-19 Notice*

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are changes to the ways I may provide services for the time being. 

All classes, interviews, prenatal visits, and postpartum visits can be conducted in-person or virtually as agreed by client and doula, following safety protocols.

I am proud to support all types of birth and parenting for all types of families. Everyone deserves understanding, committed support. I am not actively providing labor support.
