Support and Pricing
I believe parents deserve the same kind, gentle care and attention that their babies are given.
Let’s imagine you’ve just arrived home with your new baby(ies). The excitement! The joy!
And the overwhelming feeling that you now have to care for this brand new human on your own.
With a postpartum doula, your family can receive support to give you a confident beginning during this “fourth trimester,” the first three months of a baby’s life.
What does that look like?
🌱 Talking through the joys, challenges, and concerns you may have of caring for a newborn
🌱 Answering your questions about newborn care (such as recognizing hunger cues, soothing techniques, safe sleep guidance, etc)
🌱 Building your confidence as new parents with kindness and without judgment
🌱 Supporting your feeding preferences (breast/body feeding, bottle feeding, and/or formula feeding)
🌱 Helping older siblings adjust to their growing family
🌱 Providing practical help by doing light household tasks like laundry and dishes
🌱 Caring for baby(ies) so you can rest, shower, or have some moments to yourself
🌱 Connecting you to other resources as needed, such as a certified lactation professional or support for for postpartum mental health (Please note: a postpartum doula's support is non-medical)
A postpartum doula supports the whole family with evidence-based information, kindness, and helping hands.
My support is available weekday mornings in 3-4 hour shifts. Most families book support 1-4 times per week for 1-3 months.
My hourly rate for 2023 is $35 per hour.
