Postpartum Support

Postpartum Your Way

A postpartum doulas primary goal is to provide the birthing person rest, relaxation, and the opportunity to heal after giving birth. This can take form in many different ways. No two families are alike and therefore it will be your family’s individual needs that decide the type of service you will want and this could change based on needs arising or decreasing. Take a look at the packages or take things one day at a time. Either way – I am here for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Postpartum Doula?

A postpartum doula – much like a labor doula is a trained professional who provides physical, emotional and informational support to the primary parent and family members. 

This person can also provide light household organization, instruction to the new parents,  and breastfeeding support. The postpartum doula’s role is provide education and support to the new family – they are not meant to be caregivers. 

What does "light household organization" look like?

This can be a very grey line – but a postpartum doula does not double as a housekeeper. Tidying up, a couple loads of laundry (for baby), surface cleaning, and perhaps a few baby dishes (bottles, nipples, etc). I go over specifics during our consultation and in my contract. 

Do you sleep during overnights?

When doing an overnight – I will rest when the baby is sleeping and if my other tasks are done. I want to make sure that I am useful to you during this time and as a human I also need rest.

Who really needs a Postpartum Doula?

The 4th trimester is one of my areas of passion. Once the baby is born it becomes less about the birthing person and more about the infant and their wellness – and while this is extremely important, we shouldn’t forget about the care and wellness of the birthing person. 

When you are hiring me as your postpartum doula – I want to be there for the birthing person and what they need. This could be education, it could be sleep or a shower, it could be help with breastfeeding. Whatever you need – I am there. 

Do you have packages?

I don’t offer packages – however I do offer different payment plans that you can look at within the contract. Schedule a consult with me and we can find the perfect fit for you!
