Postpartum Doula SErvices

I am thrilled to continue support to Mommas and their family after the baby has come!  I provide the continuity of care that you need and deserve.  

As a postpartum doula, I serve as your peer-support and generalist for all things related to your fourth trimester –including newborn care, breastfeeding/bottle feeding support, postpartum recovery, and family adjustment.  Most importantly, I offer deep nourishment and emotional support for the mother and baby.  

I am the listening ear, the sounding board, and the go-to person for references, resources, and new momma/new baby education. I reserve judgment and simply hold space for Mothers and partners to be fully supported in all ways.  I nurture the mother back to wellness with home-cooked meals, healthy snacks, and education on postpartum nutrition.  The fourth trimester, is a tender, critical time for mother/child bonding.  The Mother identity begins formation with first time mothers, and expands and shifts with each additional birth.  As your doula, I am your guide through this sacred season with its many emotional ups and downs.  

To offer some relief for the mother and partner, the doula does many household and organizational tasks.  While light cleaning is not the main aim of the doula, it is extremely helpful for most parents for smooth bonding and adjustment.  

All the family is included in the services of a postpartum doula.  Siblings, partners, and family need specific, unique attention during this time.  I work towards keeping a united family and ease growing pains by attended to sibling needs and normalizing common concerns.  The postpartum period can be a challenging time, but having me as your doula provides you and your family with all the support you need to truly thrive, ready for what’s next on your parenting journey.
