Doula Support in Anaheim, CA

Sleeping baby Anaheim doula

A doula can...

  • Help you feel more surrounded with support before and during birth (this goes for moms as well as dads and partners!)

  • Answer questions and help you locate additional resources

  • Help you prepare for your birth and postpartum experience

  • Provide comfort measures, coping techniques, encouragement, and guidance during labor and birth

  • Promote rest, recovery, and bonding with your baby in the weeks after birth

  • Help you understand what is normal and identify possible areas of concern

  • Brainstorm with you to help come up with creative solutions to challenges you may face

  • ... and so much more!

I loved having Marlee as my postpartum doula! She really is an expert. She always answered my many questions, and my husband loved knowing that I had someone to talk to instead of just Googling every little thing and scaring myself. Marlee took away so much of my anxiety!

Family Life in Anaheim

Anaheim is a busy city with so much to offer growing families! Of course Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, and Downtown Disney are the big attractions. But many Anaheim families also enjoy the weekly farmer’s market, parks, summer events at Pearson Park Amphitheatre, great food at Anaheim Packing District, and restaurants, shopping, and even art events at Center Street Promenade. And there are many wonderful resources for pregnancy and postpartum in and around Anaheim too!
