About after the stork

After the Stork has been dedicated to serving Orange County families since 1988. Meet Sheryl Cree, the proud owner and operator of After the Stork. For the past 18 years Sheryl has worked alongside and been mentored by the previous owner Sandy Hill prior to her retirement. Sheryl is a mother of four and worked in the daycare and preschool industry prior to becoming a Certified Postpartum Doula. She has training through the National Association of Postpartum Care Services, DONA Int. and MaternityWise Int. Along with her certifications Sheryl has training in lactation, sleep training and birthing education. Sheryl holds ongoing education as a priority for herself and all doulas that work through After The Stork. She manages After The Stork holding to its high core values and standards, ensuring that families have reliable, caring support 7 days a week.

For over three decades, After the Stork has been a trusted postpartum resource throughout Orange County. Referred to new families by many of Orange County’s premier OB-GYNs, birthing centers, and hospitals including Hoag. This is a testament to our ongoing presence and extensive experience with all babies, including preemies and multiples.

When you choose After the Stork for postpartum care, you’re not just securing a doula – you are securing a highly trained, experienced doula that has been background checked and that has been referred to us by trusted people within the After The Stork family.

Our agreement provides your family peace of mind knowing that your doula is available to you immediately upon the arrival of your little one. Our flexible agreements are designed to adapt to your family’s evolving needs, allowing you to adjust when needed. We recognize that this is a major transition for the entire family. In fact, many of our clients choose to extend their agreements, to continue receiving support beyond the newborn stage. After the Stork understands that every family is different.
