Why Fostering Strength?

Postpartum without planning, ​without thought on how you can ​truly rest, heal & nourish yourself is ​far too often the reality for new ​mothers. Not only are you juggling a ​new baby, you also have a new body, ​new hormones, new relationship, new ​routine etc etc. Here at Fostering ​Strength, we believe that with ​education & a plan in place on what ​to expect, how to set good ​boundaries, realistic expectations for ​your body, knowledge of biologically ​normal newborn behaviors & support ​in place before baby comes, you can ​take on postpartum with confidence.

Meet Dané

Dané is a mother to her son, Jude, a ​CAPPA trained Labor & ​Postpartum Doula*, & a local ​ESOL teacher. After having her ​son, Dané felt like she was purely ​surviving but didn't have the ​support in place to help make the ​transition to Motherhood less ​burdensome. She knows first hand ​how important it is to have ​someone there, unbiasedly, being ​your net & giving you rest & space ​to pickup Motherhood with a bit ​more ease. She wants to come ​alongside new birthing people with ​resources & holistic care by ​fostering others strength in their ​perinatal experience. She can't wait ​to hold you up during this new ​season!
