"Speak tenderly to them. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don't only give your care, but give your heart as well."

~Mother Teresa
This is what every family deserves to have during this important change in their lives; a postpartum doula who will care for her and her family and give to her so that she can give the same to her new baby.

My name is Anna Trusty and I provide postpartum doula servies to families in the city of Chicago and surrounding suburbs. I believe passionately in the birth process and in parents' ability to be wonderful parents. Giving birth and becoming parents is more than a physical journey; this is a journey full of emotions and memories. As Claudia Lowe said "Only with trust, faith and support can the woman allow the birth experience to enlighten and empower her."

Whether this is your first baby or your fifth, if you are expecting twins or more, and you live in Chicago area, as a certified postpartum doula through DONA, I can help ease your journey through your postpartum period.
