Postpartum Doula

What will your postpartum doula DO?

Feeding: We will support you with whatever choice is right for your family. We have extensive experience with breastfeeding,  pumping, bottle-feeding, and formula feeding.

Sleeping: New families need sleep and we are here to facilitate that by encouraging healthy, developmentally appropriate sleep habits for your baby. We want you to get some sleep too! We will tuck you in and wear your baby so you can get some much needed rest!! (while we get some baby snuggles)

Physical and Emotional Care: We are newborn care experts and can help you with all the day-to-day questions that arise with new babies. We are also here to help with your postpartum recovery – physical and emotional – so you can get the rest and support you need.

Sibling Adjustment: A postpartum doula can ease the transition by making sure that siblings get plenty of love and attention.

Meal Prep and Planning: Staying nourished is key to a healthy postpartum recovery. We are happy to fix snacks, put dinner in the crockpot, and can help with meal planning.

Household Tasks: You’ve got big things to take care of; let us worry about the little things. Postpartum doulas help with laundry, dishes, and basic tidying so you can enjoy more baby snuggles.

Resources: We pride ourselves on our professional network of area providers and are always happy to make referrals for anything you might need during this time.

Postpartum Support Rate: $25/hr

Overnight Postpartum Rate: $35/hr
