Postpartum Doula Support

The transition to parenthood does not always come easily. It can be a struggle to adjust with a new baby, especially if you already have children. The mental load can be staggeringly heavy. Without sufficient support, postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety have the perfect environment to flourish. I know, I’ve fought postpartum depression myself and I’ve come out the other side.  

But you don’t have to feel like you’re juggling 20 different balls in the air while also trying to heal! You don’t have to carry such a heavy mental load. You can be present in those moments and not worry about all of that other stuff! You can build your confidence and say good-bye to all that parent guilt. A postpartum doula provides the reliable and judgement free support that you need and meets you where you are at.


Daytime Postpartum Doula Support

Shifts from 8 am - 10 pm

Support to help you lighten the mental load so you can be more present in your day. Each day shift is based on your family's unique needs from day to day, and may include (but is not limited to):

• Assistance with baby care (feed, diaper, play, hold, etc).
• Physical relief from baby care while you heal, rest, shower, or nourish your own body and soul.

Overnight Postpartum Doula Support

Shifts from 8 pm - 7 am

Support that will help your family get the rest they need so everyone is better able to cope with all of the changes a new baby brings! Each overnight shift is based on your family's unique needs from night to night, and may go as follows:

• Discuss how your day went and any questions that you may have.
• Provide any requested resources.
• If nursing, you can give your baby one last feed before you go to bed for the night.
• I will take baby and burp, change, and soothe your baby until they fall asleep.
• While baby sleeps, I will do light (quiet) housework, meal prep, or find resources that you may need. If all those things are done, I will rest until baby wakes.
• When baby wakes to eat, I will either feed baby a bottle or bring baby to nurse. Repeat as many times as necessary.
• Near the end of the shift, I will prepare breakfast/coffee/etc for the family if desired.
• Debrief the night (either in person or via text later that day) and leave you to either sleep longer or enjoy your breakfast/coffee.
