Caitlan W. | Postpartum Doula in Rochester, NY

Sage Support

    Practice overview

    My favorite description of postpartum doula work comes from a Chinese phrase - mothering the mother. My goal is to provide the physical and mental space you need to heal your body, take care of your baby, and grow to understand their needs and personality. I want to hear your birth story, be there when your partner has to return to work, and fill your freezer. ​Doulas are a non-medical resource to not only the birthing parent, but the whole family. In your home, I will provide emotional, practical, and educational support, including assisting in newborn care by providing another set of hands or giving parents a chance to rest, supporting the family's feeding choices, helping older children adjust and, if needed, keeping them busy, prepping meals and snacks, and organizing baby items and light tidying up. ​Additionally, if needed, I can provide referrals to medical providers or other experts.

    Care philosophy

    I am a DONA-trained postpartum doula with a focus on inclusivity and evidence based practice. My goal is to support your family as you get to know a new baby. I trust science and will point you to evidence-based resources whenever possible. I believe Black Lives Matter. I am welcoming and affirming of all LGBTQIA+ families.
