Postpartum Services

What is a Postpartum Doula?

 A postpartum doula provides ongoing support to your family as you welcome your new infant home. I provide education on newborn care and basic feeding assistance. You and your partner will have many questions during the postpartum period and I can help you to answer them. The sleep support I can provide often makes all the difference in the ability to enjoy the postpartum period. I spend time with older siblings and provide you the opportunity to spend special time with them, to help in integrating the new infant in the family. I provide prompt referrals for any issues beyond the scope of the doula.

The postpartum time period is a special time of bonding and recovery for mother, baby, and the whole family.  Having a non-judgemental source of support as you find your way to parent this new baby empowers you to find your own joyful parenting style.

Postpartum Packages

My postpartum packages are completely flexible according to your family's unique needs.  You are welcome to schedule my assistance at the interval you feel would be most useful for you.  Families often choose to have the most support early on, and reserve a few sessions for slightly later postpartum.
