Postpartum Doula Services

Postpartum doulas provide practical advice and assistance once you are at home with your baby.  They help take care of the new mother as she learns how to care for her new baby.  We are trained and have experience in postpartum and infant care. 

Years ago, new mothers could rely upon extended family and friends to help out in the early days following childbirth.  While some women have such help, more women are choosing to hire postpartum doulas to help them through the first few days at home.

Some of the things postpartum doulas can help with include:

bulletCare of the new mother, such as helping with discomforts following birth and assistance with infant feeding.
bulletGuidance with infant care
bulletHousehold maintenance, such as light housekeeping, shopping, errands
bulletMeal Preparation
bulletChild Care for the new infant while mom rests and for older siblings

Questions to Ask

bulletAre you available around my due date?
bulletHow many hours a day are you available, and what times of day do you work?
bulletHow much do you charge, and what is included?
bulletWho is your back-up, and can I meet her?
bulletUnder what circumstances would you send your back-up?
