Just Moved To The Hudson Valley, Now What?

New to the Hudson Valley? Starting or growing you family? Been there, done that! Welcome to Brooklyn North! We’ve been where you are. Between us, we’ve moved with babies, we’ve moved pregnant, we’ve moved with toddlers, and we’ve moved kid-free and it’s a pain in the tush every way! Moving is exciting AND stressful. Both are true! We left Brooklyn 6 years ago with a young baby and moved to Beacon in the dead of winter. We were confident about our decision for the first week or so… but then our optimism turned to fear and anxiety as we quickly realized that our fantasies of hiking every day and socializing with neighbors were just that… fantasies. And in reality we were in a new place, with no friends, a new baby, and it was freezing out. Things felt a bit grim…

I’m so glad we stuck it out. I mean, we had no choice really, but still! As soon as the Spring came around and people began to emerge from their winter hibernation, the community blossomed and it truly is the sweetest place to live. Trust us!

Now, what to do about your growing family in a new place? Chances are, you may not have family close by and you likely don’t have friends here yet. (All in good time, we promise!!) So hire a Doula in Beacon! Not just any Doula- a Wyld Doula. Wyld Doulas are unique in that we come from an Evidence Based practice, paired with a respect and trust for the natural unfolding of Birth and Postpartum. Wyld Doulas are each unique in their own right, however we all share a deep passion for supporting families crossing the threshold into Parenthood. We know that looks different for everyone, and ‘family’ can be any which way, and theres space for all of it. Wyld Doulas support births in our local hospitals and at home. We have excellent relationships with your OBs and Midwives at NY Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital, Vassar Brothers, Kingston Health Alliance, Neugarten Family Birth Center, Putnam Hospital, Northern Westchester, River and Mountain Midwifery, and more! We can be your first friend. We can be a trusted resource for education and information. We can be your best matchmaker for new friends in similar seasons of life. We are excellent caregivers, support people, and lifelines. There’s no better way to settle into your new home and life, than with a Wyld Doula by your side.

We believe everyone could use a doula, but when you’re in a new place, bringing in a new life, and still working on building your village, so to speak, hiring a Doula can alleviate so much of the stress and anxiety that is paired with Pregnancy, Childbirth, and Postpartum.

So there you have it. You’re new(ish) to the area, you’re new(ish) to Pregnancy or Parenthood, and you’re wondering what to do- Reach out to Wyld Birth & Postpartum for Doula Support in Beacon, Newburgh, Cold Spring, Garrison, Fishkill, Wappingers, Rhinebeck, New Paltz, Woodstock, wherever you are in the Hudson Valley! Consults are complimentary so whats to lose?? We can’t wait to hear from you. And, Welcome Home. ☺
