Postpartum Doula Services

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 EmbrFioina_3137editace 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.
