Support Through the Ebb and Flow of the Childbearing Year

Postpartum Doula

The adjustment to having a new member can be challenging for many families. An experienced postpartum doula can provide you with support, an extra pair of hands, and basic nursing and baby care tips. I might help with cleaning and grocery shopping, play with your older children, or hold the baby while you take that longed-for shower or nap: whatever would be most helpful to you.

While any family benefits from having a postpartum doula, some situations especially call for doula support, such as single parents, newborn twins or following a difficult birth, including a Cesarean. But doulas aren't just for folks who just gave birth; families with new babies via surrogacy or adoption can also benefit from postpartum help and care. Having enough support and "me time" is also key in preventing or managing postpartum depression.

Details

I'm available for daytime and overnight shifts, based on when you need the extra help. My daytime rate is $20 per hour. You may secure my time for 10 or more hours, and of course purchase additional time as needed. Shifts are between 3-8 hours, based on your needs and my availability.

Overnights are available at $200 for an 8-hour shift or $250 for a 10-hour shift.
