After having a baby, life changes in almost every way imaginable! Your schedule is no longer under your control. A baby changes everything, and Mom may feel like she is running on empty and are not able to be the Mom she wants to be.
My role as a Doula providing postpartum services is to help the mother feel confident and competent in her new role, and yet not take over for her! My job is to provide encouragement and support in many unique ways. It may even be just to listen deeply, listening with my heart, and listening to understand.
My support is all about building up confidence and building a foundation for a new family to help them off to a positive start. My role is to also help families make a positive adjustment by helping to provide a variety of tasks. These include (but not limited to):
- Breastfeeding Support
- Newborn Care
- Mother & Baby’s Laundry
- Caring for the Baby While Mom gets a Shower or Extra Rest
- Sibling Support
- Errands/Light Kitchen Clean-Up
- Emotional Support
- Attend Doctor Visits with the New Mother
- Resource List
$25/hour for Daytime Support (Minimum of 4 hours)
As Postpartum Doula, my job is done when I have helped Mom to be confident in her NEW NORMAL!
