As you prepare for your baby I suggest you consider taking my Childbirth Education Class, Breastfeeding for Postpartum Mothers Class and Postpartum/Newborn Care Class. All 3 classes are chock full of essential information.
The actual birth of a child is one of the most memorable and meaningful experiences that a family can have. Making the transition from the hospital or birthing center to the home can be challenging with the mother recovering from birth and the family adjusting to a new sleep schedule. My work focuses on bringing families a sense of calm and confidence as they face the obstacles and challenges of having a baby. I am dedicated to making this time a positive experience.
As your postpartum doula I will care for you and your family as you heal and recover. From new mothers welcoming their first baby home to more experienced moms who may be welcoming a second or third baby, I will help prepare meals, do laundry and household organization, run errands and help with pets. I will provide infant feeding support (breast, bottle or formula) as well as infant soothing techniques. For mothers who choose to breastfeed their newborns I will provide lactation education and support.
I also provide overnight care as sleep is vital to a mothers's physical and mental health.
I am available via text, phone, or email 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for as long as you need me.
