Welcome to Bridgetown Baby—Postpartum Doula and Lactation Services Based in Portland, Oregon.

Every baby is a life-changing gift, but sometimes the transition can be challenging or overwhelming.  A postpartum doula provides a bridge of support as you grow into your new life by providing expertise, resources, and an extra set of hands so you and your family can rest and bond with your new baby. The word “doula” comes from the ancient Greek meaning “a woman who serves.” A postpartum doula mothers the mother.

Bridgetown Baby was founded by Merriah Fairchild and Rose Otter, Certified Postpartum Doulas and Lactation Consultants (IBCLC). However you come to parenting—via adoption, surrogacy, or birth—our doulas provide comprehensive postpartum care to help families grow with strength and confidence. Bridgetown Baby is a bridge to your new life. 

"Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers—strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength." —Barbara Katz Rothman

“Adoption has the dimension of connection—not only to your own tribe, but beyond, widening the scope of what constitutes love, ties and family. It is a larger embrace. By adopting, we stretch past our immediate circles and, by reaching out, find an unexpected sense of belonging with others.” —Isabella Rossellini
