Postpartum Doula Support

Postpartum time, the so-called 4th trimester, is a bit of a wild ride, whether you are having your first baby or are a seasoned parent. There are new family dynamics, baby care, and even more importantly YOU-care that needs to be figured out. It really helps to have someone by your side who can offer gentle guidance and reassurance, who can hear you out, give you a break, and celebrate you.

I would love to be that person for you and your family. I invite you to book in our initial meeting, a free consultation, to find our how I could best support you. I look forward to our chat!

Here are the ways in which I can support you:

  • A free consultation to get to know each other, discuss your needs, and a proposed schedule of care

  • A postpartum guide full of supply checklists, planning suggestions, evidence based information, and local resources

  • Observing your postpartum recovery: helping you know when something is as expected, and when further medical attention may be needed

  • Emotional support: listening to your birth story, helping process any birth trauma, fears, concerns in your perinatal time
