A New Partnership

Your journey through pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period is a time to discover your desires and needs for you, your baby and your growing family. This is the perfect time to form partnerships with women who will support and care for you, and impart wisdom in a nurturing and loving way. Partnerships are important to professionals as well. The Barefoot Doula is growing through wonderful partnerships with Mama the Mama and InnerBirth Midwifery.
