Milan Gray

Postpartum Day Doula

Milan Gray is a fully trained DONA postpartum doula with 5 years background experience in childcare and a passion for supporting families. Although she no longer provides childcare to older children, her goal remains supporting families during this monumental transition, as well as educating using evidence based information and resources.

 

While working with Milan you can expect tender, non-judgmental, and knowledgeable support. She follows the flow of your home and it's members. Did we mention that she loves to help organize and set up baby's nursery and prepare your home for the arrival of your newborn? Her goal is to join in on and celebrate your way of parenting, not by correcting, but by providing you with the information and tools you need to make you own choices. Whether Milan is demonstrating different burping techniques or baby-wearing,  prepping you a meal or doing laundry, she will do so with encouraging words and a smile on her face.

 

When Milan isn’t working she enjoys baking all kinds of treats, experimenting with new recipes, and also loves embroidery and tending to her balcony garden. Her friends and family would describe her as joyful, confident and empathetic.

Client Testimonials

Milan has an uncanny ability to intuit where her support will be most needed. Whether is was comforting the baby, supporting me or our toddler, unloading the dishwasher, or straightening up, I never felt like I had to tell her how to help - she always just knew - which is SO valuable when you're overwhelmed and sleep deprived.

We brought in Milan to help out with our 8 week old son; we needed help managing and improving on his daytime sleep, as well as a bit of a support on (and reprieve from) the demands of first time parenthood :)

She was wonderful in so many ways. she took the approach of following our lead in terms of schedule and preferences with our son, since we'd been on our own in the daytime for 2 months by the time she came in, but she made suggestions and provided advice along the way that's proved very helpful without ever being overbearing. She has great instincts and is very knowledgeable, and for situations where she hadn't directly experienced something before, she tapped into her doula network to get advice and was ready to try a bunch of ideas until one stuck. A good example: my son randomly decided to start rejecting the bottle after having taken it since birth; we tried some things until it turned out to be that I couldn't be in the same room as him because of his preference for nursing. She's also so warm and thoughtful, and made an instant connection with my son (and with me!)
