Stevie Rose Doula
Certified Postpartum Doula
Due to the Global Pandemic COVID-19, I have introduced additional safety measures both in my home and the homes of my clients. I am focusing on overnight support at this time, however I am working with other doulas to get your daytime needs also covered. Please contact me for more details.
I am so happy that you are here, and congratulations on your new addition!
They say if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. I found my passion as a postpartum doula and have not worked a day since. In the current culture parents have so much pressure to be perfect and do it on their own. I have made it my mission to educate parents on the benefits of having support during the fourth trimester, and that it truly does take a village.
I became a mother in 2006, I remember that feeling and pressure to do it all on my own. To say it was a struggle is an understatement. I went on to have a total of 5 children. Each time I gave myself a little more grace and asked for more help. By the time I had my 5th baby I took all the help I could get. Needless to say my experience in the 4th trimester was the best the last time around.
For years I contemplated leaving my secure career in a healthcare office to follow my dream to become a Postpartum Doula. Finally in 2018 I trained with CAPPA to become a Postpartum Doula. I started my work in an agency setting and then launched my own business in 2019. I have since became a CAPPA Certified Postpartum Doula and have served over 20 families. Which have included: multiples, babies with disabilities, preemies, and singletons. As many parents know there is always new and updated information when it comes to the care of a newborn, that is why I continue my education by reading postpartum-related books, and taking courses to help serve my families. I always maintain infant CPR as well.
Watching families grow, and people become parents for the first, second or even third time has been a joy. I can truly say that I love what I do!
In my free time I enjoy spending quality time with my family; watching movies, swimming, hiking, and exploring San Diego.
