PRENATAL & POSTNATAL SUPPORT
As a Postpartum Doula and Sleep Consultant, Sara Morse emphasizes the importance of postpartum care. Sara will support and empower you as you embrace the ups and downs of parenthood, together.
"I recently worked with Sara and she was a miracle worker with my toddler!!! She helped me get him on track and created a healthy sleep pattern for him in his big boy bed!! I highly recommend using her if you are having sleep troubles with your little one. Everything was laid out nicely and happened in baby steps so there was not a tremendous amount of change all at one time. Sara took her time answering questions and guiding me through the entire process until my guy was officially set. If you are looking for sleep like I was, please reach out to Sara to help you get some zzzzz."
