Serving Champaign-Urbana and Surrounding Areas

Hey! I’m Courtney.

My passion for doula work came from when I was a little girl. I use to watch “A Baby Story” on TLC every morning. It sparked my desire to want to deliver babies.

But one day I learned about “doulas” and after attending so many births, I realized I didn’t really want to deliver babies. I wanted to support the women having the babies!

After having my first baby of my own, my desire narrowed even further and I knew I not only wanted to, but needed to be there to support mamas during their postpartum weeks.

And I am so in love with this job. I love being there to help a mama feel more comfortable in providing care for her new baby, for helping her get some well needed few hours of sleep, for helping around the house so she feels less anxious about the tasks to be done, for providing meals because she can’t find the time to feed herself, and so much more. I FREAKING LOVE IT!!

How Can I Help?

As a postpartum doula, I’m here for whatever you need.

Feeding support

As a certified lactation consultant, I can help with feeding, lactation, and pumping.

Newborn and afterbirth care.

I’m happy to help with newborn and afterbirth care. Let’s get you in a nice Sitz bath!

Laundry & tidying up.

A clean and tidy space can calm your mind, body, and spirit. I can help with laundry, light housekeeping, and even errands!

Non-judgemental listening & support.

Go ahead. Vent. Cry. Yell. Postpartum emotions can be a roller coaster. Let’s ride together.

Let you take a nap.

Sometimes you (or your partner) just need a nap. Let me take care of your new bundle while you get some uninterrupted rest. 

Please note: I do not currently offer nighttime care.

Support during postpartum anxiety and depression.

A little expert support can go a long way in helping with postpartum anxiety and depression.
