As a doulas my first priority is to insure that the new mother and the family feels comfortable and full of confidence, specially during postpartum. I support mums to give them rest and relax, to assist you with breastfeeding and nurturing you baby.
Having a newborn can be incredible and incredibly exhausting. And probably a postpartum doulas is the best kept secret for your recovery from birth and the early days of parenthood. I can help you learn to navigate life with a new baby, while at the same time, help you feel nurtured and supported each step along the way.
I try to lighten the load that new moms inevitably feel. AThe services I provide will vary from client to client, but typical postpartum services include:
- Breastfeeding support and instruction
- Day and Overnight Care
- Baby soothing skills
- Newborn care
- Meal preparation
- Baby equipment expertise
- Referrals to local resources
Happy mama, healthy baby!
A postpartum doula can help the mother process the birth experience. This allows Mom to express feelings of both frustration and wonder, to mourn the loss of life pre-baby, to embrace her new identity, to navigate shifts in the romantic relationship and to deal with the overwhelming worry and guilt that often plague new parents.The emotional and mental support that the doula guarantees goes beyond advocacy and providing a shoulder to cry on—she meets the mother where she is. Anticipating the mother’s needs — food, water, rest, sunshine — makes the difference in the overall mental health of the entire family. Meal preparation and providing mom the opportunity to rest are a part of almost every daytime shift — two basic needs that keep a mom grounded, calm, strong and happy.
