Let me help you be the confident, empowered parent you've always wanted to be!
What is a Postpartum Doula?
A Postpartum Doula is someone who is there to help you with the transition home after having a baby. I can teach you basic newborn care, help you with basic household cleaning, allow you to shower or nap, and also help with light meal prep.
Each day, your needs will be different. I come in, quickly assess what you need help with that day, and get to it!
I am even available for overnights! Need a full night's sleep to catch up? I will room-share with your baby, give the baby a bottle/bring the baby to you to nurse, change diapers as needed, and do the nightly soothing routines so you can get the rest you NEED!
Taking Care of You!
Lets face it, unless you're one of the few lucky ones with babies who sleep through the night from day 1, you will likely be tired. And when I say tired, I mean that you might think you're part of an experiment to see how long humans can function without sleep. Not to mention, the fact that your body is still healing from delivering a baby and may also be nourishing that baby too! Let me make sure you get the rest you need, food served to you, and a nice long hot shower to relax in!
In the US, approximately 1 in 5 moms will suffer from postpartum depression. In countries with strict postpartum care rituals, it is closer to 1 in 25 women who suffer postpartum depression! Your body and your mind need time and support throughout your first year to heal from pregnancy and delivery. Not only am I trained to recognize signs and symptoms of postpartum depression but I can also support you through these struggles. I can also provide you local resources for mental health support as well.
Whether you're a first time mom learning the ropes and looking for advice, or a fifth time mom who needs help around the house, some sleep, or some meal prep, a postpartum doula is for you!
I absolutely love helping moms in the form of education. Based on your own parenting philosophies and desires, I can help teach you ways to make them a reality!
Don't know if your baby's behavior is normal? What type of diaper rash do they have? How do I use a baby carrier? How do I wash cloth diapers? What are the best formulas on the market? What foods should I introduce first?These are all types of things I can help you learn and master!
Everyone says that babies don't come with a manual, and SO MUCH has changed since your own mother was raising a baby, that you may not know who to ask for reliable information. Get a postpartum doula in your house as your built-in, non-judgemental baby manual!
What about older babies?
Is your baby currently going through a sleep regression, teething, or do you have overall basic needs that aren't being met? Have you recently said "I just need a break!"? I have been there! You too can have a doula's help! I serve families with babies up to a year old.
