"Ask me for strength and I will lend not only my hand, but also my heart."
As your postpartum doula I will offer non-judgmental support, help in aiding you as you learn about your newborn, as well as nurturing you through your transition as a family with a new baby. My postpartum care is always customized to your specific needs in order to help you relax, recover, and enjoy your baby.
Services can include:
Emotional & physical support, processing your birth experience and answering any questions you may have.
Education in common newborn care techniques, teaching you tools for soothing a cranky or tired newborn, learning infant feeding cues, and breastfeeding support.
Postpartum self-care information & support, helping with family adjustment, caring for older siblings, and caring for your baby while you shower, eat, spend time with your other children and/or your partner, and rest.
Light household cleaning, help organizing baby/mom related appointments, and running local errands.
Helping you explore baby wearing and cloth diapering options, and providing evidence based care and referrals when necessary.
My postpartum visits are $100 for up to two hours, and $45 per hour beyond that.
My postpartum services are available for existing birth doula clients and can be available, as my schedule permits, for people who are not already clients.
