Denise Roundtree

Hello! My name is Denise. 
 
My passions are babies whether they follow a natural birth, by adoption, or Surrogacy, I love what I am doing and I do it with love and knowledge. I have 20 years of experience working with preemies, newborns, infants, and twins and I must say “You never stop learning how to make things better.” For the parents and families whose babies I’ve cared for, coaching, educating, and guiding them has become an art.
 

Childbirth preparation classes may prepare you for the miracle of birth but not always the reality of life. A postpartum doula can ease feelings of apprehension and uncertainty and will address your questions and concerns. It is for these reasons that new families value the help a postpartum doula offers.

As your postpartum doula, I am a neutral, non-judgmental third party, with a quiet presence in your home giving quality, non-intrusive, in-home services for new parents including physical, emotional, and educational support according to the wishes and needs of the family.

I will enable you to recover from pregnancy and birth and focus your energy on bonding with your new baby. I help parents and older children integrate the baby into the family in a loving, gentle manner.

My role as your doula is to provide education, non-judgmental support and companionship, and to assist with newborn care and family adjustment.

Breast or bottle? Whatever your decision I offer postpartum infant feeding support.

As a Certified Lactation Counselor, I am trained to help you address breastfeeding issues that can arise. Although breastfeeding is natural, it is not necessarily instinctual. As a Lactation Counselor, I offer a broad range of services, which include everything from teaching a new mom how to position her baby on the breast to giving her tips on how to increase her milk supply or handle a breast infection. Even months into breast-feeding, moms who want help finding a good pump or figuring out the nursing implications of starting their babies on solid foods can benefit from a home visit.

I have been blessed to share calm and confidence with new families for the last decade and look forward to working with you.
