A Postpartum Doula helps families after a baby is born, which may include caring for baby while parents rest, taking care of the laundry, answering questions about breastfeeding or bottle feeding and so much more. Simply put, I am there to help you be the best parents you can be. My non-judgmental support will help you, do you. I offer day and night shifts, so I can be there when you need me. Whether you are pregnant, recently gave birth, or not so recently gave birth, contact me and we can begin our journey through motherhood together.
Services can include but not limited to:
Emotional, physical, and educational support
Judgement-free environment where parents make decisions regarding baby
Teach swaddling and other soothing techniques
Light meal preparation
Anything to help ease the transition into new parenthood
A Labor Doula is a birth expert who will be available by text/email your entire pregnancy that can answer questions, help explain any decisions you may have to make, and someone to share your excitement and/or anxiety about your new bundle of joy. A prenatal meeting will be scheduled so that I can get to know you and can learn about your birth plan. I will accompany you to the hospital or even help you labor at home if you choose. Whether you have an epidural, medication-free vaginal birth, or a c-section, I will support you through it all. I am trained to provide physical, emotional, and educational support for my client. Doulas do not replace your partner, but will support any amount of involvement your partner desires. About an hour or two after birth, I will leave to give you and your partner time to bond with your baby. I will schedule a postpartum visit after you bring your baby home to answer any questions you may have and to check in and make sure everyone is doing well.
My labor package includes 1 prenatal visit, support through your labor, and 1 postpartum visit.
