Postpartum Doula Services

Postpartum Doula 

Many families focus on the upcoming birth of their baby but sometimes give little thought to the postpartum period. As a Certified Postpartum Doula I am qualified to help with the following:

Maternal Care
  • Includes but is not limited to giving parents a chance to engage in self-care, preparing a bath, ensuring physical comfort, brief supervision of baby (while parent remains in the home)

Emotional Maternal Well-Being
  • Supporting you to adjust to your new role and identifying concerns related to postpartum mood for the entire family

Care Demonstration
  • Newborn and infant care demonstration (i.e. bathing, diaper changing, etc)

Infant Development
  • Evidence based information on infant and child development such as (but not limited to) infant sleep, understanding babies cues

Feeding
  • Infant feeding education & assistance

Nutrition
  • Basic nutritional information and light meal preparation with a focus on whole nutritious foods to support postpartum wellness and recovery
