Loving Arms Doula Care, LLC -   Postpartum Care for New Moms

 About Me   

Loving Arms Doula Care, LLC was founded by Donna Cangialosi in 2007. She is based in Somerset County, but assists families in most areas of West/Central, NJ. Donna is a Certified Postpartum Doula through DONA International, and received her training as a Lactation Counselor through the Healthy Children Project.

As both an experienced doula, and mother of 2 grown sons, Donna understands the concerns and needs of new parents.  She has provided doula care to families with singletons, twins, preemies with apnea monitors, babies with reflux, and babies via surrogacy.

Her special area of interest, however, is providing physical & emotional support to new mothers suffering with Postpartum Depression & Anxiety (PPD). Postpartum mood disorders affect 1 in 8 new mothers and it is the most common complication of childbirth.  Donna began doing volunteer work with PPD moms over 20 years ago after recovering from it herself. In 2000, she moved from volunteer to administrator of a national organization providing help to women suffering perinatal disorders.  After that non-profit closed due to lack of funding, Donna earned her certification as a postpartum doula to assist women in a different capacity.  Currently, she is a warmline volunteer for Postpartum Support International (PSI)
