April Mompreneur- Branching Out Doula Services

Get a group of moms together and most likely the "birthing" experience is shared. Some are similar, some different and others you thank God didn't happen to you. There's so many options these days when it comes to delivering a baby- Cesarean, induction, natural, epidural, VBAC and the list goes on and on. OBGYN's are great, but sometimes it pays to have someone with insight for your needs.

April Opoka  started Branching Out Doula Services with that thought in mind. Life spun out of control for April as she battled Perinatal Mood Disorders during her pregnancy. Then when her son was born in a record of time of 1.5 hours from onset of labor pains to delivery, life seemed to spinning beyond control when her son was taken away to be "monitored" right after delivery.  April knew it didn't need to take so long for her to hold her son or begin breast feeding him.

April started Branching Out Doula Services in January. She has a background in science and medicine and is a trained DONA birth doula. She'll be by your side and supporting you with your chosen birth plan. She helps all moms, but she is partial to helping women with mood disorders, anxiety and depression. April provides standard doula services plus cloth diapering support, prenatal preparation, and baby's hand/foot prints or impressions. You can learn more about April's services at Branching Out Doula Services. You can also meet April at The Great Cloth Diaper Change on April 21 at Sweetbottoms Baby Boutique in Raleigh. Visit The Great Cloth Diaper Change for details about this event.
