PostPartum Doula

As a Postpartum doula, I provide non-medical, practical care to make sure that your physical, emotional, and practical needs as you transition to motherhood are met. I help with basic newborn care,  guide you towards new mom resources, etc. I support you so that you can rest, recover, and bond with your baby. As you assess your needs for your expanding family, I provide the resources for your household to run smoothly while everyone adjusts to life with a newborn. Postpartum visits are a minimum of 3-4 hours per visit. Research evidence shows that the quality services of a postpartum doula can ease the transition that comes with the addition of a baby to a family, improve parental satisfaction and reduce the risk of mood disorders.

 

Each prenatal visit is usually 1-2 hrs to get to know you and your family's needs (partner's presence recommended). It is a good idea to meet with a postpartum doula before the baby is here.
