Let us support you through the 4th trimester as you and your family adjust to life as a new family from the hospital room to your living room.

DAY & NIGHT SUPPORT

Our doulas are trained to meet your family's individual needs for postpartum support from the beginning. Our goal for your family is that through our support you will feel rested, educated and confident in caring for your baby once our time together is over. Our doulas will help ease the fears and stressors that come with a new baby as you learn to cope with the demands of parenthood in those first few days, weeks, and months. Our doulas will help create a customized plan for your family that may include:

  • Maximizing sleep efforts
  • Feeding and pumping education for breast and bottle fed babies 
  • Referrals to in home and in office IBCLC lactation support
  • Recognizing normal newborn behaviors 
  • Accompanying you and baby to doctor visits
  • Meal prep
  • Teaching newborn care
  • Recommendations and instruction on using any newborn and postpartum products
  • Light housekeeping and errands

HOSPITAL SUPPORT

Being in the hospital with your new baby can be a challenge even with the extensive hospital staff available. In-hospital postpartum doula support was designed for women who are recovering from an intense births (both vaginal or surgical) or are experiencing an extended hospital stay and would like to keep their baby by their side. It is hard to serve from an empty vessel, so let our doulas be the ones to help you maintain some calm during a tiring and sometimes stressful period in life. 

Fees for postpartum doulas range from $30-35/hr
