Postpartum Doula Support

Congratulations! You are getting to know and nurture a new little human (or humans), and getting to know and tend to yourself as a parent. This time may be exciting, transformative, difficult, and joyous. As a postpartum doula, I am here to support you as you navigate the first 12 weeks following birth. Postpartum doula services include the following, at a rate of $35/hour.

Prenatal Meeting

If booking postpartum services apart from birth services, we will begin with a prenatal meeting in your home, during which we will discuss your postpartum plan, support networks, and desires for care during this time.

Postpartum Visits

Each postpartum visit will last 3-4 hours, depending on our agreement. Typically, visits are either weekly or twice per week during the first 4 to 12 weeks following birth, and the duration of support is tailored to your individual preferences. During each visit, my services may include:

  • Breast/chest/body-feeding support / infant feeding support

  • Help with baby care

  • Emotional and informational support

  • Openness to discussing postpartum depression or feelings of baby blues and referrals to mental health support professionals if desired

  • Light cleaning (doing dishes, tidying, laundry)

  • Running errands, such as grocery shopping

  • Cooking for you / meal prep

  • Guided meditation

  • Referrals to community resources and lactation professionals

Text, Call and Email Support

Throughout the duration of our working relationship, I will be available to you via text, call, and e-mail for informational support.
