Elana Einstein, Portland Doula
As your postpartum doula, I bring a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the joys and challenges of early parenthood. Originally from Israel, I spent nine fulfilling years as a preschool teacher before moving to the United States in 2000. This background has given me a strong foundation in child development and a deep appreciation for the unique needs of growing families. In addition to raising my own three grown children, I am also the proud grandmother of a one-year-old granddaughter.
Beyond my passion for supporting families during the postpartum period, I have a deep love for painting and gardening. These creative outlets bring me immense joy and serve as a source of relaxation and self-expression. I understand the importance of finding balance and self-care, and I encourage you to explore your own passions and hobbies as you navigate the beautiful chaos of parenthood.
Prior to becoming a postpartum doula, I founded and successfully ran my own preschool in southwest Portland for 16 years. This experience provided me with invaluable insights into early education, fostering nurturing environments, and supporting both children and parents. Drawing from this background, I bring a wealth of knowledge and resources to help you create a loving and stimulating environment for your growing family.
As your postpartum doula, my approach is rooted in compassion, respect, and personalized care. I am here to listen to your needs, answer your questions, and provide non-judgmental guidance. Whether it’s assisting with newborn care, offering household support, or simply providing a compassionate ear, I am dedicated to being a reliable and nurturing presence in your life.
I am truly honored to be a part of your postpartum journey and to help you build a strong foundation for your growing family. Together, we will navigate this transformative time with grace, joy, and a deep sense of empowerment.
