Birthways is the Chicago area expert in providing professional new parent and new baby care to all families. The tender time immediately after baby arrives should be joyful, exciting, and an opportunity for families to bond. At Birthways, our mission is to deliver knowledgeable, compassionate and non-judgmental support, guidance and reassurance as you learn to care for your newborn.
“My mother-in-law wanted to visit. I wanted to include her but having the doula, in the beginning, helped me to work through my own lack of confidence so when family arrived, I felt like I had things figured out and we could enjoy the visit. I even learned to nurse more discreetly so I didn’t have to feel self-conscious. “

Meet feeding goals such as breastfeeding success or weight gain
Fill gaps in your support system
