postpartum doula care
Professional postpartum home care is designed to help families adjust to life with their new baby. As a postpartum doula, I offer support and comfort for the whole family which is an important resource when everything feels so new. Parenting a newborn is ever changing experience. Doula care focuses on parent education, non-judgmental support, companionship and guidance during the time following the birth allowing you to gain confidence in your intuitive ability to nurture your baby.
Benefits of postpartum doula care include:
- Greater breastfeeding success
- Greater self-confidence
- Less postpartum depression
- Increased baby-soothing skills
- Positive impact on bonding, attachment and coping skills
- Timely referrals to appropriate professionals and community support
Postpartum services include care for the mother and infant(s), as well as support for the family and in the home. As a new mom, you'll have support through self comfort techniques related to birth recovery, help with breastfeeding and bottle feeding, infant bathing, diapering, laundry, dishes, meal preparation, light housekeeping, sibling care, family support and household management. You can expect experienced care for premature infants and multiples and compassionate support for postpartum mood disorders.
Postpartum care should be an option for every new family. Reduced rates may be available to clients facing financial hardship, please ask.
