Postpartum Doulas

Juanita Sawyer Postpartum + Newborn Specialist | Educator Juanita is a birth and postpartum doula committed to providing families with personalized, non-judgmental, compassionate care during what is one of life’s greatest transitions. She sees birth and the early days of parenthood as a time for a rally of loving, knowing individuals to gather around and bolster new families into finding their way.  As a long time caregiver, Juanita found her way to doula work through years of work in nutrition, education and family support. The common denominator that came in to her view during those years of work was the value of instilling confidence and community connections for all families and how the roots of that can be established in the time around birth. She is pleased to walk with families through those early, tender, connective moments.  Juanita is DONA trained as a birth doula and has trained with Austin Baby Guru as a postpartum doula. She sees herself as a vessel for validation, genuine listening and plentiful resources for parents expecting, in birth, and postpartum.
