Meet The Team

After the Stork is proud to employ a passionate, mature team of loving and experienced postpartum doulas who are excited to come into your home and support you and your family.

All of our doulas have extensive experience with children and families. They have each worked with Georgette for many years, and have stayed with After the Stork because they love what they do and the families they meet.

All After the Stork doulas have:

  • Background clearances
  • Reference checks
  • TDAP
  • CPR certification
  • Breastfeeding and lactation support training
  • Experience with postpartum mood disorders
  • Training from Childbirth and Postpartum Professionals Association (CAPPA) or Doulas of North America (DONA)

In addition, all doulas either hold a national postpartum doula certification from CAPPA or DONA, or they are actively working towards certification. This is typically a two-year process.

We differ from most of the other agencies out there because our postpartum doulas are employees, not subcontractors.  What does this mean?

  • We work as a team to figure out what works best to keep your baby happy and healthy. From trouble-shooting sleep and feeding issues to addressing newborn behavior issues, we work closely together to help minimize conflicting information and recommendations.
  • Georgette works very closely with each doula to make sure things are going well in every home. “If you need multiple doulas, I make sure I am in touch with them to make sure everyone knows what has been working best with your little one.”
  • We hold regular group training sessions so that everyone stays up-to-date and on the same page with the latest research in breastfeeding and lactation, healthy infant sleep habits, bonding, soothing, reflux, infant massage, postpartum mood disorders and more.
