Postpartum Doula Support
What is a postpartum doula?
Many new parents don’t realize that the first few months in the postpartum period can be even tougher than childbirth itself. These are the times that families need the most support.
A postpartum doula is not just for first time parents either. Those with other children at home often need even MORE support to get the rest they so desperately deserve.
Having help in the first few months after having a baby can get you off to a great start in your parenting journey.
My main goal is to help build your confidence and support your emotional needs while facilitating bonding within the household. I am there to help everyone adjust to a new baby and life outside the womb, start parenthood off strong, and heal after birth- physically and emotionally. This support, similar to my role as a birth doula is about connection.
Support may include....
-Typical Newborn behavior education and soothing techniques
-Parent care and soothing, too!
-Household tasks, light cleaning, laundry, meal preparation
-Education on infant sleep expectations
-Support with sibling adjustment
-Help with the emotional and physical recovery after birth
-Extended Community Support
-Referrals to local resources such as parenting classes, pediatricians, lactation support and support groups
-Facilitate partner communication
And so much more
New Parent Thriving Support
Because a family with postpartum support is more relaxed and confident. My goal is actually for you to thrive during your newborn months, not just survive it!
New Parent Thriving was intentionally created to ease the anxiety that families experience as they grow. Whether you’d like assistance with newborn care, new sibling adjustment, baby-wearing, household tasks, or simply another set of hands available for whatever comes up, I am here to help.
Little ones grow so quickly and arranging for postpartum support to aid in navigating time where needed, frees up parents to remain fully present and mindful in these first days, weeks and months.
You are always a New Parent as each baby challenges and encourages you to grow, with other children at home you’ll often need even MORE support to get the rest you so desperately deserve.
Each session consists of a minimum of 4 hours of care.
Sometimes the household will get the boost they need after only one visit, while others prefer to have multiple visits spread out over weeks or even months.
Parents can choose the number of sessions that their specific family needs and more can always be added later.
This session also makes a fantastic addition to a baby registry!
New parents can always benefit from the gift of time.
Investment: $100/4hrs day-time ($25/hr)
$240/8hrs over-night care ($30/hr)
