POSTPARTUM SERVICES

The Best Start for Your Family

Postpartum Services: My Services

WHAT IS A POSTPARTUM DOULA?

As a postpartum doula- trained by CAPPA, I have studied for countless hours to provide evidence-based information and support to families. I help parents stay calm and confident throughout the postpartum and newborn stage. I can help with infant sleep, breastfeeding positions and latching, swaddling, bottle feeding, diapering, babywearing, postpartum recovery, family organization, preparing meals, laundry, dishes, and expectations for the newborn stage. I can also provide newborn care so that parents can take care of themselves, get some rest, or simply relax. You can ask me endless "is this normal?" questions, and I can put your mind at ease.
If I don't have the expertise, I will connect you with people who do.
