postpartum doula care

honor ~ trust ~ expand

 

I provide a nurturing presence and non-judgmental support for the whole family through this major transition to parenthood.

 

Postpartum doula care can look a lot of different ways and we will work together to create the most supportive plan for your family.  In general, I come to your house to help with: light housework, food preparation, emotional support, breastfeeding assistance, and caring for other siblings.  I can offer ideas to create newborn care routines and understand newborn communication, stages, and needs.  My ultimate goal is to support YOU and to create a space so that Mama and Papa can fully focus on the newborn, or simply rest. I am also able to run small errands for you in town and to join you in appointments if desired.  Typically, I would come for a 2-6 hour block of time to help you and your family.  Overnight care is also a possibility to help parents get much need rest. These services are available anytime after birth. After 4 weeks postpartum, I will help you with some very gentle postnatal yoga if you like.

 

Before you give birth I will work with you to formulate a postpartum plan and anticipate needs to make this a truly sacred, nourishing time for your family.  This can be done in person or over the phone.
