Postpartum Doula Services
After the birth of your baby you can extend the support you receive to ensure that you have the best start possible. Postpartum Doulas are there to do many jobs, but to name a few, they help with household chores, older siblings, shopping, meal prep, and baby laundry. Their most important job, however, is care and support of you and the baby. We are there to make sure you are nourished, doted on, and relaxed.
You may feel nervous about being alone with the baby right away, wondering if you'll know how to do everything without help, that is where your Doula comes in. We can train you to recognize your baby's cues so that you know what they want before they go into complete meltdown mode. We show you how to help them sleep (so you can too), how to latch or bottle feed and work that crazy breast pump contraption.
I am there to make sure your household runs as usual while you take your time to heal and bond with the baby. I am your personal assistant, who just happens to be an expert in birth and babies.
