As a postpartum doula, I help mothers and families adjust to daily life with a baby. I will care for you and your family during the postpartum period in a way that is tailored to your needs and personality, giving you evidence-based information along the way and helping you find your parenting style without any bias or judgement. By hiring a postpartum doula, you can relax in your new home, knowing that you have practical and emotional support and company, without the pressure to entertain. Some of the practical skills that I can help you with include:
Evidence based breastfeeding support
Maternal postnatal care
Newborn care and education
Light Housekeeping and sibling care
Screening for postpartum mood disorders
Additional resources and referrals in your community
Additionally, I can help you navigate topics such as co-sleeping, baby-wearing, and techniques to soothe your baby. Many mothers take comfort knowing they can leave their baby in the hands of a trusted professional while they shower and take a nap.
Bringing your new baby home can be overwhelming, demanding, and exhausting. Having a postpartum doula by your side to compassionately help you through this life-changing transition can positively influence your bonding experience with your child, how you perceive yourself as a mother, and your memory of your postpartum period for the rest of your life.
*Postpartum doula packages are sold in packages of 16 hours, with a four-hour minimum per shift.
