As your postpartum doula I will be there to nurture both mother and baby, offering practical assistance as well as emotional support, enabling a faster recovery , a feeling of increased confidence in meeting the challenges a new baby brings.
I provide skilled breastfeeding support and guidance in all aspects of newborn care whether that means demonstrating swaddling, bathing and burping techniques or caring for the baby so you can sleep or get some fresh air. I can also tend to practical chores, as time permits, such as shopping, and cooking nutritious meals.
By having a skilled doula at your side immediately following the birth of your baby can insure healthy sleeping patterns from the very beginning.
Above all, a doula is a mentor who answers your questions and provides much needed assurance in a gentle, non-judgmental way, allowing you to develop your own unique parenting style. Families also vary as to when they wish to begin services. Some parents elect to have additional care immediately upon return from the hospital. Others wish to schedule the care for after a grandparent or other help leaves, when the mother or partner returns to work or at any other time that may work for you and your family.
We gently show you how to care for your baby, we help you get the rest you need, during the night we bring you the baby for breastfeeding and take care of changing and soothing him/her back to sleep while you catch up on your sleep. We wake you up with a warm nutritious breakfast and have your dinner prepared, ready for you to simply warm up and serve.
