postpartum + new parenthood

Postpartum Doula Support

Postpartum doulas are specifically trained and experienced to offer physical, emotional, and educational support after childbirth or during the first few months with a new baby. Your postpartum doula will meet you at your home, in a birth center or a hospital and offer care for a specific amount of time as you transition to parenthood (or parenting again). We do not provide medical support. We provide non-biased, evidenced based information and resources to support you in making decisions about what is best for you and your family and compassionate care for you during this deeply personal and transformational time. 

Postpartum Doula Roles Include:

  • Physical, emotional, informational support and guidance

  • Basic feeding support (body, bottle, combo, etc. including human milk pick up drop off if your surrogate is pumping)

  • Newborn care suggestions and support (including newborn massage, bath time, sleep support, baby-wearing etc.)

  • Phone, text, and email support

  • Food preparation and light meals, snacks. and nutritional support 

  • Wellness support

  • Errands and grocery shopping (funds to be provided by client in advance)

  • Light housekeeping (laundry, dishes, cleaning bottles, tidying up etc.)

  • Sibling entertainment

  • Pet care (walks, feeding, love)

  • Referrals: for medical care providers, perinatal practitioners, lactation consultants etc. 

  • Overnight care

  • Baby care (changing, feeding, naps), walks, engaging activities, reading, etc.

  • and much more...always customized for each individual client and family!
