Besides being a parent, my role as a postpartum doula is one of my favorite hats to wear. Being allowed into a family’s space during such a vulnerable and sacred moment in their life is a job that I’ll never take lightly. As cliché as it sounds, it truly takes a village to raise a child, and I realized that in our fast-paced culture, we often aren't supported as much as we would like to be as new parents. But as parents, we always find a way to do it all. We can truly be superheroes.

I'm a mother, lactation counselor, doula, and the owner of Repose Birth Services.

I'm Lorraine.

Hey there!

Being an amazing parent and partner doesn't have to be at the expense of our sanity.

But one day, I stopped to think, what if we don't want to be a superhero?

This epiphany became my catalyst into me becoming a doula and creating a doula agency. I feel honored to have a role in which I can provide parents the support that I desperately needed when I was pregnant and newly postpartum. I love being that support system to new and growing families, to show them how to feed and soothe their baby, to let them know they’re doing an amazing job, and remind them to pay no mind to the naysayers who have something to say about their choice in parenting We can easily “do it all”, but choosing not to doesn’t make us any less of a parent.
Taking care of ourselves is the best way we can take care of our family.  

It took me a while to realize that it's okay to not be able to do it all. Feeling overwhelmed, asking for help, and putting myself first is okay.
