Thank you Ela. This is a common response when people learn about our work! I hope that one day everyone will have access to a postpartum doula at no or low cost, as has been common in other countries for decades. Thank you for your well wishes and I wish all the best to you as well.

I did a similar effort in 3 local public housing communities. It was called the "Parenting Van" funded through Child Youth and Family Services (now called Readykids, in Charlottesville, Va.) where parents and children birth - 6 years joined me when I arrived each week with a van full of activities. I have a Montessori background and taught parent child classes for years so brought that expertise to my groups. I'd be happy to share my experiences if you ever want to discuss.
