Affordable & Compassionate Care for All

Doula Care & Lactation Services

Postpartum doula care and lactation support should be affordable and accessible to all families, including LGBTQIA+ families. Whether this is your first baby or your fifth, your family deserves support. This can look like answering your “is this normal?” questions, holding your baby while you take a nap, helping you master feeding baby, making you a snack and doing your laundry. I offer in-home and socially distanced care, education and support. I work on a sliding scale so your family can afford care. Most families pay $15-$30 an hour.

Books & Babies Blog

Diverse, Inclusive Books

All children and families should see themselves reflected in literature. Reading with your babies and kiddos can make your relationship stronger, create memories and help you raise compassionate children. The stunning art and compelling multi-cultural stories made me fall in love with Barefoot Books when I was a librarian. Now I delight in sharing them with my own children. I became a Community Bookseller so that I can help other families discover these beautiful books.
