Post Partum Health ( taking care of mom)
Promotion of self care. Teaching mom to remember that she matters is so important.
Confidence. I help moms realize that yes, YOU can do this!
Endless resources and referral options. including a network of over 5k birth workers in the area.
If I don't know the answer, I can get you the answer.
A listening ear, warm heart and open mind. Judgment free. This is helpful in processing the birth experience. Some are traumatic and that translates into other things that need to be addressed (postpartum mood disorders and anxiety)
Overnight care. awake, 6 hour shifts, or let me take care of the baby all night! Sometimes parents just need one night to play catch up on their zzz's. An overnight allows me to take care of the baby so parents can get in a solid stretch of sleep.
Other Services + Classes
Baby wearing consultations I can teach you how to properly use a carrier or wrap.
Lactation support As of Spring 2020, I will be a Certified Lactation Counselor. Also-Learning how to be comfortable feeding in public. Feeding doesn't always mean nursing,
so I am trained in SNS feeds, cup/syringe and pace feeding.
As part of my time with the family, I can prepare meals and snacks to provide each
member with the necessary nutrition.
Ensuring mom has enough water and proper
meals means she has the energy to take
care of baby, because she is taking care of herself.
Newborn wellness bathing, soothing, changing, swaddling, feeding, umbilical cord/circumcision care.
I can help guide you through those first few months.
Sibling (and fur baby) Integration
Older children don't always immediately love their new sibling and the shared attention from family members. I have some coping techniques to help get through these things.
Family Health + Happiness
Small errands (grocery shopping), attending postnatal and pediatric appointments
Nursery organization and setting up postpartum care/recovery and nursing/changing stations
NAPS- rest when the baby rests. Do laundry when the baby does laundry. Sounds easy peasy, right? Sometimes, mom/dad needs a nap or a shower,
lunch with a friend, a date night with their partner to reconnect, or a playground visit with an older child adjusting to new baby.
I can care for baby for these things to happen.
Light housework, i.e., laundry, empty dishwasher, change sheets, washing bottles/pump parts
Prepare snacks and meals while on shift, meal prep dinner for family
A skilled doula empowers a woman to communicate her needs and perceptions and actualize her dream of a healthy and positive birth experience.
