on your growing family! This is such a special time in your life. The expression “A baby changes everything” really is true! There is so much to learn and so much to make ready. In addition to the happiness and excitement you feel as you prepare for the arrival of your new little one, you may also feel a bit anxious and overwhelmed. This is normal. Bringing a new baby into your family is a leap of faith into the unknown. You have no way of knowing what it will really be like until you are there.


The good news is you don’t have to face it all alone. I’m here to help. My name is Valerie Mickell, and I am a Postpartum Doula in Richmond, Virginia.

Postpartum Doula


I passionately believe that the early days and weeks at home with your baby are a time to be cherished and enjoyed to the fullest! In much the same way that a newly married couple enjoys a Honeymoon together after the wedding, I believe your new family should enjoy a Babymoon together after the birth. It takes a bit of planning and organization to help things go smoothly in the postpartum period. Just as importantly, you deserve to be nurtured and supported through this precious time. Let's get in touch to line up your postpartum care and support. My goal is to help you have the Babymoon you’ve been dreaming of.
