Synergy is the concept that the combined value and performance of the two or more individuals will be greater than the sum of a separate individual.

Bringing your new baby home is a time of filled with excitement and joy. Oxytocin flows as love fills the air through the youthful eyes of your new baby. Everything in your life changes in the blink of an eye. And while that all sounds beautiful, it does not come without some challenges.


Recovering from birth is not effortless. Learning to feed your baby is not always trouble-free. Functioning on little to no sleep is flat-out difficult. And the emotions that come during the postpartum period well…that’s a whole other story!

While the list of ways a postpartum doula can support you is clearly defined below, most postpartum parents have a hard time explaining what they need most.

Defining the word “support” is different for each unique individual. Most of us have no idea what it feels like to truly be on the receiving end of actual unbiased, non-judgmental support; unless they’ve hired Arnetta Ford as their postpartum doula!

Arnetta’s support and expertise includes the following:

  • Affirming “normal” postpartum emotional responses

  • Alerting you to “beyond the scope of normal” recovery

  • Infant feeding support in all modalities

  • Newborn care instruction, guidance and support

  • Baby product recommendations

  • Infant soothing and comforting techniques

  • The elongation of sleep patterns (age appropriate)

  • Light housekeeping

  • Meal preparation

  • Errands and/or shopping

  • Sibling support

  • And so much more  

Unbiased postpartum support is based on each individual’s parenting philosophies. No two experiences are ever the same. Personalized support tailored to your changing needs is essential to your recovery and your ability to successfully cope with what is now your “new normal”. Arnetta Ford collaborates with you to understand exactly how she can assist you best. She listens attentively, without making assumptions, and asks for clarity when necessary. She knows that being heard, is the first step to being seen, and she knows how significantly being seen in early parenthood impacts the adjustment period.


Arnetta has limited availability, so don’t hesitate!
