I provide evidence based information on things such as infant feeding, normal emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care during your postpartum period, using the extent of my knowledge as a mother myself, my doula experience, and training in postpartum support.
As a postpartum support, I am there to help your new family in those first days and weeks after bringing home a new baby. Research shows that parents and babies have an easier time with this transition if a good support team is in place.
As your postpartum support, I can provide:
Supporting and helping with breast/bottle feeding
Help with Meal Prep
Giving time for mom to have a rest or run errands
Help with siblings and pets
Help with organization for baby
Knowledge and experience of postpartum, feeding, and infant care
Resources specific to your situation, and referrals to further support
Postpartum doula support can work a variety of hours, depending on families needs with a minimum of a 3 hour shift. Postpartum doulas offer night time service to help the family transition more smoothly into the challenges of night time parenting. At the present time I am only able to offer support from 6AM to midnight, and not overnights, however I do plan to offer overnight support in the future.
A Postpartum doula does not perform medical tasks or any diagnosis. Its important to remember they are not nannies, chefs, maids or lactation specialists but an additional support to help out with all the little things that take time away from the at home parents so that they can focus solely on thier babe.
For all services, I offer a free, no-obligation consultation. I am happy to meet with you and your partner, answer any questions that you have, and get to know you a little bit. Contact me at email@example.com to set up your free consult!
