Pregnancy, Newborn, Family Photographer and Postpartum Doula. I have been helping families document these special times for years. I needed a doula when I had my baby and didn’t have one. This has inspired me to help other parents. I am a mother myself to a teen now and have more time to give. I love helping new parents rest, eat, heal and take care of baby after birth.

Care philosophy

I like to focus on the 5 Pillars of healing: Rest, Nourishment, Loving touch, Wisewomen, Connection to nature.

    Suzanne was an amazing postpartum doula. She understood the importance of real support and knew how to connect with her clients’ emotions in a delicate time. From the moment I met Suzanne I knew she was someone who was honest, caring, and absolutely loved little ones. My baby also felt safe in her presence. Can’t recommend Suzanne enough.

I’m a follower of Christ first and most importantly. I am a Military Spouse with 3 children. My husband and I have been married 15 years. Before I became a Birth and Postpartum Doula I worked in the field of Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I studied to become a Doula while stationed overseas in Okinawa, Japan. My calling and Ministry in this life is Mothers, Women and Children. Helping mothers whether in labor, during the birth, or after the baby has been born is my joy and passion. It brings me great joy to help families during each stage of pregnancy and there after. I take each opportunity that I’m given with families as a blessing to show love, compassion, and care in every area that it is needed. I have also valued how much love and thankfulness I receive from each family I’ve had the pleasure to serve. I can honestly say that I’m doing exactly what I was made to do and with that truth I face each opportunity with excitement, joy and eagerness.

Care philosophy

Hello My name is Keshun Mobley and I am a Birth and Postpartum Doula. It is my belief that Birth is designed to be a natural process. I do not buy into the belief that Birth is a Medical Procedure and I don’t believe mothers in birth should be treated as such unless there is cause for concern. It is my belief that after a Birth mother and baby should have the best care of love and assurance.

    Keshun has been critical to my postpartum care experience as a new, first-time mom during this crazy pandemic. Two months after my son was born, my husband went on a 4-month deployment. Not only was I living alone with no family around, but I was also in grad school and was struggling to find balance and take care of myself. Keshun came over about once a week to every other week and took care of me by making sure I was nourished with good food, a clean home, organized my son’s room, and helped with my never ending laundry piles. She is punctual, professional, and very experienced with children. Keshun is someone who you immediately feel that you can trust with your little one, and see by her work ethic that she is passionate about being a doula. She is very personable and down to earth, and I would highly recommend her to any new parent needing a helping hand.

A postpartum doula in Fayetteville, NC is meant to help the entire family and their role is not just limited to the birthing parent and newborn. A doula provides physical and emotional support to parents and siblings, but they also offer information and advice regarding how to feed, bathe, swaddle, and soothe the baby.

They also often help with postpartum depression issues, and are considered child care “consultants” rather than medical professionals. Many postpartum doulas in Fayetteville, NC offer a range of services that can help with parents trying to adjust to a newborn child. These services often include:

  • Sibling care
  • Assist with household chores
  • Parent-baby bonding
  • Physical and emotional recovery
  • Support to parents and extended family

A postpartum doula in Fayetteville, NC can have a lasting positive impact on a family and help them feel more confident about their parenting role and the way that they feed and nurture their baby. They might offer advice regarding feeding, bathing, and parent-baby bonding.

It is important to note that a postpartum doula might offer advice but is not expected to provide medical care of any kind or serve as a replacement to an accredited physician. Postpartum doulas are also not qualified to prescribe medication.

Many new parents want to know about certified postpartum doulas and how exactly they are certified. Since the demand for postpartum doulas has greatly expanded in the last several years, the number of reputable postpartum doula training and certification programs has grown in Fayetteville, NC. Training criteria can differ from program to program, but most follow a similar curriculum which includes core academic curriculum and practical hours and real-life care experience.

One of the most common national postpartum doula training certifications comes from DONA International. A postpartum doula usually receives about 27 hours of practical training before they are a certified postpartum doula.

There are also CAPPA-certified postpartum doulas in Fayetteville, NC, as well. These doulas were certified by the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association, an international organization that certifies doulas and other childbirth educators/professionals.

As a reminder, because postpartum doulas are not trained to be a medical professional and diagnose and treat medical conditions, a certification is not required for them to practice.

As their names suggest, a birth doula’s main priority is to provide support services before, during and in the moments immediately after childbirth. A postpartum doula’s obligations usually begin after the birth, for several weeks or months. In many cases, your birth doula will also be a trained and certified postpartum doula, which can provide a continuity of care that many parents find extremely valuable.

Many parents want to know whether a postpartum doula or a baby nurse would meet their needs and expectations. A baby nurse might be focused on making sure that a baby sleeps or feeds properly, but that might be the extent of their role. A postpartum doula generally offers more holistic services for their clients.

A postpartum doula in Fayetteville, NC is expected to be more involved with the family as a whole. They might remain involved in sibling care or also provide emotional support to the partner as both parents adjust to becoming new parents. This may even include support for older siblings, light housework, and even meal prep. A postpartum doula provides more physical, emotional, and informational support than a baby nurse.

You can hire two types of doulas in Fayetteville, NC: a birth doula and a postpartum doula. The birth doula is during your pregnancy and through the birth of your child. They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.

A postpartum doula will support you for the first few weeks after the baby is born. They provide in-home assistance, including teaching you how to take care of your newborn, acting as lactation consultant, and can provide some night nanny services.
