“No one else in the medical community gave us faith that I would be able to breastfeed after what we’d been through. Sejal, however, never doubted I would recover and be able to fully feed my daughter.“ –Demaree Reveaux
“Let me start by saying this: I don’t know where my wife and I would be without Sejal.” –Oscar
“I call her a real life Mary Poppins. I am a new mother to twins and am recovering from a c-section. Sejal came in and helped restore order and calm to our household. She cooked and washed the mountain of bottles. She allowed me to rest and snuggle with my babies. She changed diapers and did the laundry – baby and adult – and most importantly, she supported me in my journey. She always leaves the house better than when she arrives and is a real gift to any new (or expanding) family.”
My postpartum doula career is inspired by the person that I am and my background: I feel that when you help a mom, you are helping the entire family to grow and be empowered. I believe that I can be a part of the village that is needed to raise a child for a better future.
I have been living my mission for 3+ years and empowering new parents with the skills that are needed to raise their child. I offer various postpartum support packages, and private as well as group classes in Baby Massage, Baby Yoga, TummyTime!™, Newborn Care and Breastfeeding. I offer a special class that is combination of breastfeeding and newborn care for moms on bed rest in the the comfort of their home.
I’m also very proud to be from India, a culture that is known worldwide for its heritage and hospitality. Not only is helping moms and families in my nature, it’s also a big part of the way I was raised!
Feel free to reach out: I love hearing from new people, and you can look forward to some yummy food and good ol’ Indian hospitality.
“I thought I was going to have to give up breastfeeding after only being able to pump 1 ounce for the first two months and having to feed ALLL the time in order for our baby to get enough.. but now I am exclusively breastfeeding our 5 month old and I even pumped 12 ounces one time!”
Sejal was an absolute miracle to my breastfeeding journey. She has such wisdom and expertise when it comes to lactation support.
I would not have been able to continue breastfeeding without her encouragement, guidance, and support. My milk supply tanked after suffering severe engorgement and mastitis. My daughter was also diagnose with a lip and tongue tie, which Sejal helped to diagnose.
Sejal helped suggest exercises, stretches, supplements, and a comprehensive feeding/care plan for our baby to help her pull more milk, gain weight and eat more efficiently.

Sejal went above and beyond for our family and would come on short notice when we were really struggling. She works so hard and is so loving. I recommend her to everyone whether your are having issues or not!
