“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.
“Plates of food and endless bottles of water just appear whenever she is around”
“After getting the babies to sleep, she kept working – cooking and cleaning and talking with me about the challenges of being a new mother. “
“On her first day, she somehow managed to reorganize the plethora of bottle parts to give us more counter space than we’ve had in months.”
“She is an incredible cook, making delicious meals out of the thin contents of our pantry.”
“Sejal would show up and before I knew what was happening the laundry would be running, food cooking, dishes done, and babies resting happily on my chest for skin to skin time.”
“She taught us new techniques and tips for feeding, sleeping, etc. that really made a difference in the happiness of our twins. It was like night and day with how our babies responded.”
“I felt like she was the one person who really listened to what I was saying and helped find solutions.”
“As we continued to work with Sejal, she became one of the few people I trust to manage two babies at once.”
“She is such a wonderful presence in the house–things get clean and organized, food appears as if by magic. And the babies love her!”
“She works quickly, anticipates mine and the twins needs, takes initiative, gives me tips to care for two babies at once, and is a joy to be around.”
“Finding someone like Sejal who is nurturing, knowledgeable, gentle and kind is such a gift.”
“She holds my baby gently and lovingly and I know he’s in good hands.”
“Sejal also identified a lip and tongue-tie issue with my baby and directed me to Dr Gaherri. I was so glad that we identified the issue early. Legacy lactation consultant also informed me regarding the lip-tie issue but not the tongue-tie. Providence lactation consultant did not recognize either of the issues.”
“The difference between Legacy/Providence lactation and Sejal was that Sejal did not rush things. She spent whatever the time new born needs and tried to fix issues.”
“I wish I had hours to simply learn from her!”
“Sejal is a true baby whisperer!”
