Postpartum Doula

As a postpartum doula, I am trained to support families in different environments and situations. Whether this is your first baby or your fourth, whether you just had one baby or three, whether you need daytime or nighttime support, I can make the road you are traveling a lot easier.

My background is as a teacher, nursery assistant, and nanny. I’ve cared for children from day one through the teenage years.

I have a keen awareness of what the “whole system” (i.e. your family) is missing and how to fill the gap. My eagle eye for details, and ability to read the energy in a room, allow me to predict what will be helpful before you even notice you need it.

Whether your tense shoulders need attention, your kitchen needs tidying up, or you need a relaxing bubble bath to sink into, I’m going to help you relax so you can enjoy this precious time.

Here’s what my daytime postpartum doula services include:

  • Postpartum recovery — I’ll listen to how you’re feeling, provide emotional support and physical comfort, and take care of your baby so you can rest or get a break
  • Newborn care education — I’ll show you how to bathe, diaper, dress, swaddle, and soothe your baby
  • Infant feeding — I’ll help you with nursing or bottle feeding, showing you the best positions for comfort, and make sure your baby is getting the nutrition they need
  • Sleep support — I’ll teach you about newborn sleep patterns, sleep hygiene, and safe sleep habits so you have realistic expectations and the tips for getting the most sleep possible
  • Meals — I’ll do light meal prep and make you healthy snacks to keep your body nourished and your energy up (full meal preparation is also available; contact me for details)
  • Light housekeeping — laundry, loading/unloading the dishwasher, tidying up, and organizing so when you look up from your baby’s face you won’t see a mess

As your night postpartum doula:

As your night postpartum doula, I take care of your baby so you can sleep. We focus on everyone resting, so I won’t be doing anything around the house. All of your baby’s needs will be taken care of. I can feed, burp, change, and soothe your baby so you can sleep through the night, or bring your baby to you to nurse. I may be able to do quiet tasks like folding laundry and restocking the nursery if time (and baby) permits.

We’ll meet once or twice before we start working together to establish our expectations. I start each shift by listening to what is going on for you, providing emotional support for your journey, assessing your needs, and establishing priorities for that shift.

"She was professional and great with our baby, which is the most important thing. We very quickly felt comfortable leaving our brand new baby in her care - she new exactly what to do in pretty much any circumstance that arose (often more than we did), but she never failed to consult with us and to ensure that we knew what was going on."
