Naturally, it started with a baby.
In 2005, Carey Lindeman created Promise Care, a unique home elder care service with a focus on personal relationships and whole health wellness.
2006 brought a new baby and new perspective. Carey became a grandmother! She soon realized that home health care was crucial to an entirely different group — new parents in need of postpartum support.
Explains Carey, “These days, moms are home from the hospital fast…without the sense of community, extended family and postpartum care parents used to count on. A time that should be intrinsically joyful loses its luster when mixed with uncertainty and exhaustion.”
Already recognized as a professional caregiver, Carey was in a unique position to respond. And so, along with the birth of Carey’s grandchild, 2006 saw the birth of Welcome Baby Care. WBC has since become the Twin Cities’ premiere postpartum doula agency.
Tory Kielas-Jensen joined Welcome Baby Care in 2009 as a postpartum doula. She was quickly promoted to Director of Operations, helping build WBC into the thriving company it is today. Tory recently purchased the company from Carey, and is now the Owner/COO of Welcome Baby Care!
Tory’s vision for Welcome Baby Care is to one day be able to provide postpartum care for any family who needs it. She is passionate about educating the Welcome Baby Care team on the latest infant development practices, and also works to help certify more postpartum doulas in Minnesota, the US and from around the world!
