Postpartum Doula Care
basic package

 

Postpartum Services Include:

As a Postpartum Doula, I offer physical and emotional support to the new mother, partner and her family, by ensuring a smooth transition into parenthood. I'm there to help you establish a solid routine, to listen, comfort, and educate. Research shows women who are supported in the postpartum period have a reduction in postpatum depression, breastfeed longer and adjust to parenthood more quickly.

Basic postpartum package:

  • Assistance with all newborn care (diapering, bathing, burping, swaddling, soothing, basic hygiene)
  • Lactation support
  • Emotional support for stressed and anxious parents
  • Helping to organize household schedules 
  • Family adjustment strategies (especially beneficial with older siblings)
  • Light housework and meal preparations
  • Teaching basic infant massage techniques (very useful for digestive upset)
  • Helping to identify coping strategies to soothe a new baby
  • Provide community resources (medical and social)

*As a doula, I do not perform any clinical tasks, or recommend any medications. 

Cost: $180 for a 3 hour session

$465.00  for 9hours. ( 3 postpartum visits) 

In our experience we find the greatest benefit for the family comes from 3 or more visits.
