"Motherhood is the greatest and the hardest thing."
– Ricki Lake
Bringing your new baby home means changing routines, dividing time and figuring out how to juggle it all. This is where a postpartum doula can be a huge help!
The postpartum doula offers many services to her clients, but her main goals are to help “mother the mother” and nurture the entire family as they transition into life with a newborn. Tasks include:
- Lactation support
- Help with the emotional and physical recovery after birth
- Light housekeeping so that mom does not feel so overwhelmed
- Running errands
- Assistance with newborn care such as diapering, bathing, feeding and comforting
- Light meal preparation
- Baby soothing techniques
- Sibling care
- Referrals to local resources such as parenting classes, pediatricians, lactation support and support groups
12 hours (1 week) – $450
24 hours (2 weeks) – $875
48 hours (4 weeks) – $1700
Daytime packages suggest a schedule of 4 hours of support for 3 days per week. You are able to schedule your postpartum doula visits in a way that best suits your needs.
Hours may be billed individually and combined with overnight support (see below).
If you desire a package larger than 48-hours, email us to explore our options!
Our overnight support is designed to provide all the services of daytime support, while also encouraging additional rest for the parents during the night hours.
