COMPASSIONATE Support for your family
by your side through all the bumps in the road.
Serving Nashville with Experience and Compassion
Rebecca Mills, owner of By Your Side Family Doula, provides professional Postpartum Doula and Lactation Counseling services in Sumner County, Tennessee and the Greater Nashville Area. No matter what your family looks like, or how it came to be — pregnancy, surrogacy, or adoption — she offers support, information, and resources as you welcome a new baby or babies.
Rebecca exudes calm, strength, and patience as she supports and guides her clients.
Her years of experience and non-judgmental philosophy allow her to meet each family where they are,
and help them make a plan for where they are going.
Daytime Postpartum Doula
Your days are often spent bouncing between caring for and feeding baby and managing your household. This leaves you very little (if any!) time to do what you need to do, which is rest and recover from birth. Daytime help from your Postpartum Doula will shorten your to-do list and give you more time to bond with your baby or babies.
Resources & Connections
Parenthood can often feel like a solo job. Forging connections and creating a community is key to heading off the feelings of isolation and loneliness that can often accompany having a new baby. We bring connections for every kind of situation, helping guide you to find your people who will support you through everything.
Create the environment needed for your family to thrive.
kind words from past clients
"Rebecca was a huge help to us as first-time parents with our daughter. She was able to give us some insight and suggestions to help our daughter who struggled with acid reflux to rest more comfortably during the evening hours. She encouraged us and our efforts as new parents. We had a great experience with Rebecca and would recommend her!"
Margaret & Joe
"Rebecca's postpartum doula services were an invaluable help to my family after the birth of our third daughter. She eased the transition and made sure all of us were fed and well taken care of during those first few weeks at home. She helped with everything!! From food preparation and laundry, to sibling support and lactation advice, her warm presence allowed us to focus on bonding with our new family member while she took care of the rest. The support she gave us is something we will forever be grateful for."
"I cannot say enough wonderful things about Rebecca. She is so sweet, calm and has a wonderful sense of peace around her. She is also a whiz when it comes to cloth diapering and a proper wash routine. I would highly recommend any of her services."
