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.
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.
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
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.
*Everyone deserves support during the postpartum period. Please contact me to discuss payment plan options and alternative resources.
