Why “One Moon…”?

“Cultures throughout the world have long recognized there is something magical about the first six weeks of life. Many cultures have a custom by which the mother is given lots of support and rest and is freed from all responsibilities except learning to care for . . . her baby.
Some cultures refer to this as ‘one moon cycle’ others as ‘the first forty days.’

The Breastfeeding Book, By Martha Sears, William Sears

One Moon Doula Services is proud to provide families with the highest quality of postpartum doula support available in the county of San Diego, and honored to be of service to you during this incredibly important time in your family’s life.

At One Moon Doula Services we believe that the weeks and months following the birth of a newborn is a fragile and fleeting time. Parents are often overwhelmed with lack of sleep, the newness of their roles and responsibilities, and the seemingly constant needs of the newborn/s. While conditions usually rapidly improve after the first few weeks, getting enough sleep and support in the meantime can make all the difference between enjoying those early days and simply enduring them. It is our mission to help you envision what you desire for your family’s transition, and to provide a range of services to protect and promote that experience.

Whether you are looking for overnight support, meal preparation and light housekeeping, sibling support and household organization, breastfeeding or bottle-feeding information, or education about newborn development and postpartum health, our doulas are poised and ready to be your resource and your guide. Non-judgmental, professional and compassionate support is what we are all about.

Our doulas undergo professional training, mentoring, and ongoing continuing education to remain current, informed, and sensitive to the needs of each unique family. The agency owner is steadfast in her commitment to orient families to what they can expect after the birth of their child or children, help them determine what services can best benefit their particular family, and arrange for them to select the doula that best meets their needs.

  • I really appreciated how non-judgmental the doula was – whether it was breast/bottle feeding or sleep training ideas, she… never made me feel like my ideas were wrong and was always open to finding the solution that would work best for me and my daughter.

  • The doula was knowledgeable about specific details (breastfeeding, sleep safety) and big picture issues (like changing family roles). She offered incredible support, guidance, and education.

  • Last night,there were zero unnecessary wakings! Adam (3+ months) slept from 7:00 to 12:30 and then from 1:00 to 6:30. Sleep, sweet sleep! I know we're not necessarily home free and tonight may be different, but what amazing progress so far. Thanks for all your help so far. We're seeing such big improvements to improve the quality of all three of our lives.
