Postpartum Day Doula, Lactation Educator Counselor,
Newborn Care Specialist
Isa joined the Golden Gate Doula team in 2019 and has fast become one of our most requested doulas. She enjoys supporting clients who are looking for that extra guidance and gentle approach during that delicate postpartum period. She works with families during the day time so she can offer more hands on education and training to give you the confidence you need to care for your newborn. Isa took some time off during the quarantine to dive deeper into her education and become a Lactation Educator and Newborn Care Specialist. She has a talent for getting babies (and parents) into a healthy feeding and sleeping routine and good schedule for what works best for your family. Isa cares deeply for helping you to problem solve any of those unexpected postpartum or newborn care needs.
Isa lives in Marin with her daughter and fur babies.
Words from Isa "As a postpartum day doula I provide judgment-free support after your baby is born and gently guide you and your partner as you develop in your new role as parents by providing reassurance, practical assistance, and information. I help revitalize you as you nurture your new baby by making sure you are well-fed and hydrated. I take care of household tasks such as baby laundry, light housework, and kitchen clean up so you can focus on this special time with your baby. I help with any breastfeeding and bottle feeding challenges in a calm manner, empowering you with education and support. I listen to you! I listen to your birth story, feeding challenges and concerns about your baby. I listen as an understanding, non-judgmental and soothing presence. I assist in keeping the household working smoothly by running errands and grocery shopping. I care for your baby while you have a refreshing shower or a much-needed nap. I aide with the care of older siblings, or take care of your new baby so you can have some quality time with the now "big brother" or "big sister". I support you by providing (non-medical) information and explanations, and you decide what's best for your baby."

Clear background check
I would highly recommend Isa as postpartum doula. We worked with Isa in Jan-Feb 2020 when our first child was born. Isa is incredibly warm, caring and nonjudgmental.
Isa was very organized and always on time. She was also helpful in cleaning my pump parts/bottles and with the baby laundry. My husband and I felt fully confident in handing over our son the moment that Isa arrived so that we could get some much needed rest.
I would absolutely recommend Isa as a postpartum doula.
