Postpartum Doula Services

Pospartum Doula Care

Do you ever wish you had someone to help you around the house with daily chores, cooking, and organizing?

After having a baby, you NEED support more than ever!

Your first 6 weeks after giving birth should be spent resting and focusing on your new baby! This can also be an emotionally stressful time with the current demands placed on moms in our society and the shift in hormones in the body after giving birth!

While this support is common in other parts of the world, here in the USA we have lost the custom of this much needed care! You worked hard being pregnant and birthing your baby. Now is your time to bond with your baby and establish good feeding routines. Sleep will be an adjustment for you with a waking newborn at night. You shouldn’t have to worry about taking care of anything else!

Someone to take care of you, the mom!

While you may have many visitors arriving to see your new baby, you may not have any support actually getting the things done you need!
If you are a first time mom, you will appreciate assistance learning how to care for a newborn whether that be with breastfeeding, changing a diapers, soothing a fussy baby, or giving a bath!
This is where the valuable service of a professionally trained postpartum doula comes in!
Trained in infant CPR, breastfeeding and bottle feeding skills, baby wearing, general infant care, calming techniques, healthy food planning & cooking, organizing baby’s room, planning schedules & guest lists, light house cleaning, preparing relaxing baths and teas, and more!
The postpartum doula is there for you, the MOM, and can also help with the adjustment of siblings with new baby if you already have other children!

A professionally trained mom specialist and newborn care specialist all in one!
