Postpartum Services

You are just getting home with that beautiful new baby.  Visitors will be over soon, whether you are ready or not.  Everyone is excited to see the new addition and it's all too common for parents to be an an afterthought.

But what if you were made to be the center of attention?  What if for those first few weeks you didn't have to be sleep deprived or wish that lunch would make itself?  What if you had someone there who was focused on your needs?

When you hire a postpartum doula, you have that.

From the moment I enter your home, you can feel at peace knowing that the care you receive will be totally tailored to fit your needs and lifestyle.  I understand that what is important to you is different from what is important to someone else and my care reflects that.  That is why it seems nearly impossible to list all of the hings that postpartum doulas do, but here are a few things that you can expect...

Postpartum Doulas Can:

  • Assist with breastfeeding, formula feeding and pumping  
  • Answer questions about normal newborn behavior and development
  • Answer questions and suggest resources for your own recovery
  • Light housekeeping such as laundry, dishes, and tidying
  • Light meal preparation
  • Errands
  • Sibling Entertainment
  • Help you to get adequate sleep
  • Additional help with a premature baby or newly adopted baby
  • Connect you with community resources
  • Listen
  • The list goes on and on...

It doesn't matter if you are breastfeeding or bottle feeding.  It doesn't matter if this is your first baby or your fifth.  The level of non-judgmental, research based care that you receive will ensure that your postpartum period will be a great one.  In a time when everyone has an opinion on your parenting choices, rest assured that the only opinion I care about is yours.

Night time care also available!

Take advantage of having a knowledgeable postpartum doula there with you through the night.  We all know that being well rested and getting enough sleep is the best way to take on life.  Let me help you achieve that.  I will join you in the evening and help your family settle into bed.  You can sleep through the night knowing that feedings are taken care of or that baby will be brought to you through the night to nurse.  You can rest easy knowing that the laundry is all folded and the dinner dishes are taken care of.  This may sound like a dream come true, but it can be your reality!
