What can a Postpartum Doula
Do for You?

What is a doula? and how can she help?

A doula is a “mom coach” who serves mothers through the challenges that often come with the birth of a new baby, offering the extra nurturing and care a woman needs during the vulnerable time surrounding childbirth.

 

Why would I need a doula?

As a postpartum doula, I am trained to provide emotional and educational support to moms.  Although giving birth is a natural process, being a mom may take a little coaching and mentoring from a professional who wants to hear your heart. Whether it is your first baby or not, I understand and have experienced the challenges of adjusting to life with a newborn.

 

With some hand-holding, I will help you become more confident and comfortable with feeding, establishing sleeping routines, basic infant care, light housekeeping, making simple meals and even assist in caring for older siblings.  Also, I provide additional services, even an overnight stay to improve your rest and recovery. 

A special message during COVID-19

I always say DONTdoulaItALONE. But now more than ever with the COVID-19 pandemic, it can be an especially scary time to bring a baby into this world.

With a postpartum doula, you don’t have to “doula” it alone, physically or emotionally. My job is to mother the mother and take care of YOU. This is the reason I want to hold your hand 🖐 and hear your 💜 .

As your postpartum doula I can serve you virtually 👨‍💻 or in-person, or a combination of both.

After your baby comes, I will provide support 👩‍🍳 🧼 🧺 for you so you can focus on the most important: recovery 😴 for you and feeding 🍼 your baby.

I will hold your hand 🤲; I will coach you through initiating a feeding pattern 🤱🏼and teach soothing techniques 💤to get your baby off to a healthy start.

I will hear your ♥️ ; I will listen and validate your birth story, assure you that all these emotions 😯😲🤗😧are normal, while reviewing basic stages of infant development👶🏻.

And most of all I will remind you and your partner, YOU are the very best mom and dad for YOUR baby.

Although the world 🌎 is full of fear, and social distancing may restrict what you thought your birth experience would look like, you don’t have to do it alone. With support, you can enjoy the miracle of a new life and discover the confidence you need to reach your goals.
Be safe, be blessed and let me know if I can serve you or someone you don’t want to be alone.👩‍🦰
