We are pleased to introduce Diana! Diana has joined MDDS as a Postpartum & Infant Care Doula. She is very active in the birth world supporting families physically and through her writing on Detroit Moms Blog, amongst other things.
She launched into family doula care after having had personal experience with postpartum depression and anxiety herself. Diana knows first hand the difficulties and challenges that many new families struggle with as they transition to their new normal. She is motivated to improve the experiences of the new families she works with! Read on to learn more about Diana.
All about her family: I’ve been married since 2009, to a supportive, loving, hard worker, and handsome husband Mike. I’m a mom to a sweet, kind, and crazy boy, Vincent (aka Vinny), and newly rescued a fur-baby Goldendoodle, Noah.
I love getting amazing baby snuggles and connecting with families of all kinds. – Diana Abdallah
Passionate. Caring. Supportive.
What is your philosophy for parenting & supporting women and their families through their postpartum transition?
Unconditional support regardless of your parenting style and path.
Who is your role model? I am a bit torn between PINK and Ellen. (MDDS LOVES Ellen too!)
Give us your best piece of advice to expecting parents/new families:
Schedule date nights, ASAP. Once you learn to get out without the baby in the early months it is easier than to start when they get bigger.
