POSTPARTUM DOULA SERVICES
A postpartum doula is there to help a new family in those first days and weeks after bringing home a new baby. As a postpartum doula Embrace Doula can provide evidenced based information on newborns such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care.
I work with each family individually to find out their particular needs. Some of the duties that a postpartum doula will perform include:
- Help with the emotional and physical recovery after birth
- Breastfeeding support
- Light housekeeping so that mom does not feel so overwhelmed
- Assistance with newborn care such as diapering, bathing, feeding and comforting
- Light meal preparation
- Baby soothing techniques
- Sibling care
- Referrals to local resources such as parenting classes, pediatricians, lactation support and support group
Postpartum Doula services cost $30 an hour with a minimum of 3 hours per meeting.
Please contact me for more information on individual postpartum doula services and overnight care.
