Parenting is Hard. 

Modern schedules, far-flung families, and information overload have all made becoming a parent a little more stressful.  My goal is to give you the most up-to-date, evidence based information so that you can make informed decisions for your family.  Plus all the love and support you need to thrive as a new parent. Maybe you want to debrief after meeting your doctor. Or you need a referral for a pediatrician. Or this weird breastfeeding thing just happened! I'm here for you.

Hi, there! I'm Betsy Weber. I began my birth work as a DONA postpartum doula back in 2009. The following year, I trained as a birth doula, moved to Oregon, and worked as a nurse midwife assistant. When my family relocated to the North Shore, I continued working as a nurse midwife assistant until my second son was born in 2017. In all, I've attended about 40 home, birth center, and hospital births. I've also received training in Neonatal Resuscitation, as a Breastfeeding Counselor, Certified Nurse Assistant, placenta encapsulation specialist, and ICEA Childbirth Educator. Parenting has been my life's greatest joy. But, as a new mom, I kept asking myself, "Shouldn't this be easier?" The Lake Bluff Doula is my answer to that question. I hope to make it easier for you!
