Postpartum Support

What is a Postpartum Doula?

A postpartum doula provides evidenced based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care.

A postpartum doula is there to help a new family in those first days and weeks after bringing home a new baby.

Research shows that moms, dads and babies have an easier time with this transition if a good support team is in place. The postpartum period can be very isolating in our culture. 

As a Postpartum Doula I work to provide families with unconditional, professional support once baby comes home. Our society tends to place unrealistic expectations on new mothers who have just gone through childbirth and are now recovering and caring for a new little person! Did you know that it takes a full 30 days to rest and physically recover from a vaginal birth? Belly births (Cesarean deliveries), require at least 40 days of rest. I would love to help you achieve your best recovery possible so that you can enjoy the postpartum period/ 4th trimester as much as possible!   

 

A Postpartum Doula:

  • Provides daily compassionate care that caters to the needs of your family each day

  • Provide valuable stability to support mom with feedings, bring snacks and drinks during feedings, change diapers, put baby back to sleep, and make sure the whole family gets much needed rest. 

  • Prioritize mom's emotional and physical recovery from birth

  • Help facilitate parent–infant bonding during the vulnerable newborn stage

  • Explain, encourage and provide hands-on techniques for effective infant soothing

  • Unbiased support with feedings at the breast or bottle

  • Assistance with all basic newborn care

  • Help ease sibling transition with new baby 

  • Emotional support and stability as the whole family adjusts to their new normal

  • Process your birth with you (if desired)

  • Laundry and light errands

  • Meal planning, preparation and light housekeeping 

  • Help establish new routine for moms that are going back to work after maternity leave 

  • A calm presence when you need it the most
