Amanda Hemm is such a gem! I had a wonderful time discussing what she does – but even after our on-camera conversation we had a great time talking about what we do and what other professionals are in our area! We are so fortunate to live in this area where there are so many people here to help women in around their prenatal and postpartum experiences!
As a Postpartum Doula, Amanda supports families during the first few months with their new baby, aka the “4th trimester”. She provides education about newborn care, physical recovery, infant feeding and much more. She can be an extra set of hands while mothering the new mother and a safe space to process the birth and discuss the excitement and fears around becoming a new parent. Building confidence and a sense of empowerment in the parents is her ultimate goal. Additionally, Amanda helps connects families to local resources and other parents. Amanda also teaches private and group Newborn Care, Breastfeeding, and Prepared Parenthood classes. You can her at Babysteps Postpartum Care.
