Postpartum

As a parent myself, much of my knowledge comes from my own experiences. As a trained postpartum doula, I offer evidence-based information and assistance to help you meet your baby’s needs, care for yourself, and ease your transition to parenthood. My goal is to help each parent feel a sense of contentment, ease and connection with their baby during the first few exhausting weeks after birth.

DAYTIME SUPPORT to help maximize your recovery from birth and feel a sense of ease and connection with your baby. Every family’s priorities differ—this support is flexible and customized to your needs, including:

  • Caring for baby while you rest/shower/eat
  • Help with infant wearing, feeding and soothing
  • Meal preparation
  • Help with laundry
  • Kitchen tidying
  • Grocery shopping/errand running

Our scope of practice excludes house cleaning (other than general tidying up), driving you places, or babysitting while you go out.

Cost is $40 USD per hour, minimum commitment of 12 hours.

OVERNIGHT SUPPORT: I offer 8-hour overnight shifts with a flexible start time. While you sleep, I will tend to your baby, making sure baby is soothed and content. I can bottle-feed baby or bring baby to you to nurse, based on your preference. Overnight support also includes tidying up the kitchen, doing laundry and preparing meals for the next day, depending on your needs. I require a minimum purchase of 2 nights. Shifts are offered in 2-night increments, with a 2-night minimum.

PRICING:

  • 2 overnight shifts (8 hours each): $320 USD per shift
  • 4 or more overnight shifts (8 hours each): $280 USD per shift
