Postpartum Support

postpartum doula

PP doulas are one of the BEST baby gifts ever! Custom packages & individual hours for baby shower gifts are available for purchase

 

By mothering the mother, a postpartum doula enables the mother to recover from pregnancy and birth while focusing her energy on bonding with her new baby. Bringing home a newborn is a vulnerable, magical time. The extra set of hands and non-judgmental support eases the transition of bringing a new baby home.

We offer reliable and evidence-based information, reassurance, and hands-on help. Support, rest, and nourishment are vital tools for becoming the very best parent, which isn't always easy with a new little one- that's where we come in.  Some of the things we can do to help you settle into your new routine are:

  • Information on newborn care and feeding

  • Breastfeeding Assistance

  • Caring for baby so mom & dad can nap/shower/etc

  • Light Cooking, Meal Planning & Meal Preparation

  • Light Cleaning & Laundry

  • Errands and Grocery Shopping

Imagine for a moment…

Instead of waking up feeling overwhelmed by the overflowing laundry, the sink full of dirty dishes, maybe even a lack of motivation to nurse for what feels like the 1000th time today, or an overall “sticky” feeling- you wake up knowing that you can relax and enjoy your day. Help is on it’s way. Today, get to take a loooong hot shower, collapse into bed and awaken after a heavenly nap to a clean home, a healthy snack, a happy baby, laundry folded- the piles gone, and not a dish in sight. No fuss, no muss.

That’s where we come in. Like a sweet, cleaning, cooking, errand running fairy godmother, we help to give you and your partner a chance to nap or take care of well... life.  We can sweep up the floors, vacuum, tidy up the rooms, plow through the mountains of clothes, make you a snack to satiate the insane PP hunger, and a yummy and nutritious dinner.

OR say you have energy after your fantastic placenta pills and heavenly nap yesterday.  We can tidy up around the house, do some meal prep, and answer your newborn care and awkward healing questions. We can chat about your birth experience, help your process your current spinning emotions, and awe with you over your perfect creation.

Either way, the end state is the same. You and your family can simply be together, grow together, and love one another without a million honey-do’s. We create and foster a positive, low-stress environment to nurture your family.  

In addition to in-home postpartum support, we also offer newborn care classes and provide breastfeeding support.
