Congratulations on your birth &

Welcome to Anchoring Families Postpartum Care!

Hi, I’m Amy Moy, a certified postpartum care expert and educator serving families of all varieties in the greater San Diego area.(**currently contracting with families due June 10, 2022 and beyond**)

My passion as a professional is showing new parents just like you that whether you’ve just had your first child or your fifth, you can not only survive your postpartum period (also known as the 4th trimester), but you and your family can THRIVE – with the kind of compassionate, skilled, and targeted support for your unique needs that only an expert can provide.

That’s where I come in.

Did you know that, on average, new parents won’t see their
midwife or obstetrician until 6 weeks after giving birth to their baby(ies)? Working with a postpartum care expert (also known as a doula) can help fill in this gap in continuity of care by providing individualized support for parents and families as they transition to life with their new baby.

My work includes four key areas of support that are designed to positively impact your postpartum period with your baby:

I provide practical, evidence-based information about baby care and help identify what is normal and what is outside the range of normal for parent(s) and baby.

I enhance bonding and attachment between parents(s) and baby in the areas of feeding, soothing, learning baby’s cues, babywearing, and playing with baby.

I prioritize the mental and emotional health of parent(s) and help identify potential warning signs that indicate that medical care may be needed.

I offer hands-on support with baby(ies), older siblings, pets, and light home upkeep and meal preparation.

Families who work with me report feeling more connected,
happy, and informed than their parenting-veteran friends and family members – both during the time that I work with
them and beyond.

Struggle is a normal part of growth and learning. Your postpartum period is a time for healing and recovering from birth, bonding with your baby, and establishing a healthy feeding relationship in whatever way works best for your family. Let me show you how to remove the struggle from this magical time!
