Whether you are a new mom experiencing parenthood for the first time, or an experienced mom trying to juggle several children, everyone needs help during those postpartum weeks. How does a postpartum doula provide a more gentle transition of adding a new baby to your family?
Provides non-medical physical and emotional support to the new mother
Basic baby care education and soothing techniques
Baby sleep education to support healthy sleep habits
Breastfeeding and/or bottle feeding support
Light housekeeping such as washing bottles or laundry for baby
Meal preparation and easy meal ideas
Antepartum care (for example, assistance in staging nursery before baby is born or while still in the hospital)
Referrals to other resources as needed
My expertise also includes caring for multiples (twins, triplets, and quads), postpartum depression, special needs children, and special dietary needs. My services differ from that of a baby nurse in that I am non-medical in nature and my goal is to help the family transition into their new roles.
