Postpartum Doula Services

Do you have actual help after birth or just visitors?

After months of planning, hours of labor and birthing your tiny human, you will have a sea of family and friends itching to meet your new little one. Will they be coming to shower baby with cuddles and love or to help support mom and dad during this new transition?

If you are unsure how much help you will actually have after baby arrives, a postpartum doula is just what you need. Doula comes from the Greek word meaning “woman’s servant”. Having an experienced set of hands during your postpartum period is invaluable. Allow us the honor of working along side of you those first few months postpartum.

“Birth Matters… It matters because it is the way we all begin our lives outside of our source, our mother’s bodies. It’s the means from which we enter and feel our first impression of the wider world. For each mother, it is an event that shakes and shapes her to her innermost core. Women’s perceptions about their bodies and their babies’ capabilities will be deeply influenced by the care they receive around the time of birth.”

Sleep Consulting 101: $100

When you first get baby home all they do is sleep. But somewhere around month 3 their naps are getting shorter, more inconsistent, and baby seems to want to play all night. Now what? As a new parent you don’t have time to read all the books and even if you did, they all say different things. So what works for you and your family? 

Let me help you navigate your baby’s sleep needs with a blend of tips and techniques that will work for your individual family situation.  Because no two babies nor families are identical — no two sleep solutions are identical either. 

What’s included:

Four 45 minute consults

Swaddling tips

Learn how to make baby’s environment sleep friendly

1 Month unlimited email and text support

Steps to make sleep come as easily to baby as possible
