Parent and Baby Support
What a blessing this woman has been to our house! If you need #doula services in #SiouxFalls #SouthDakota #shannonward is it! Meals, support, education (#breastfeeding, #newparent training, etc), appointments help, overnights, help with the kids/family/pets she covers it all! You will not be disappointed.
I have seen Shannon while working with children. She builds a quick trust and used her creativity to keep them engaged. Very impressive. I would hire her again.
Shortly after having my son, I developed mastitis, and I really just needed a sick day from being a parent. Thanks to Shannon I was able to have one! I only had to be available to nurse my baby. Otherwise, I was able to take some time to rest and heal. My toddler, who doesn’t like many adults, was instantly drawn to Shannon, and she was great with my baby, too. I’m pretty sure she even folded some clean clothes I had sitting out. She was willing to come to my house very early in the morning and sneak in to be available when my toddler would wake up allowing me to not even get out of bed to greet her.
Oh, and after she helped me so wonderfully, SHE thanked ME for welcoming her into my home.
Hiring Shannon as a postpartum doula is like having an extra mom.
Shannon helped out our family after the birth of our second son. I had a very rough recovery and she was an amazing support through it all. She has so much knowledge and resources for postpartum care to truly help you “thrive after birth.” I could not have done this without her and would highly recommend her for other families!
Hiring Shannon as a postpartum doula is kind of like getting yourself an extra mom. She’ll help with anything whether YOU need to be cared for or your kids need to be cared for or even if you just need some household things done. She is a compassionate woman with an impressive chemistry with children.
I don’t know what we would have done without a doula. Even as a healthcare provider Upper Cervical of Sioux Falls, birth/new baby was a new process and to have an advocate and support system for both of us was invaluable!
Shannon is so passionate about helping families. She is prepared to help you learn how to navigate your new role as a parent! whether it be cooking for you, helping with your baby, or educating you on how to be a rockstar parent… she has you covered!
I was able to attend the wrap workshop with Shannon today. She is extremely knowledgeable and I was touched by her heart of service towards her clients!
I had wanted to commemorate my baby that died shortly after I gave birth. I was so overwhelmed by my grief that I was unable to make the shadow boxes with the materials I had purchased. Shannon was able to step in with great care and sensitivity. She has provided my family with amazing treasures of our son gone too soon. We are forever and eternally grateful for Shannon.
