POSTPARTUM DOULA SUPPORT,the care provided:

Trained and certified as a Birth, Postpartum Doula and Newborn Care Specialist the care which is provided through Supported doula services is a blend of deep understanding to the physiological/hormonal response of body/mind during birth/post birth along with the education/awareness to the needs of a Newborn.

Providing evidenced based information on things such as infant feeding/breastfeeding/chestfeeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, family–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care. As well as being familiar with all of the “normal” appearances and behaviors of a newborn, this awareness brings peace of mind to the parents that their newborn is developing appropriately.

Overnight Postpartum Support:
Daytime Postpartum Support:

Overnight night support consist of caring for babe while the parents sleep restfully. It can look like many ways based on your desire for infant feeding, when time for a feeding I may provide babe with a bottle or bring the baby to you for nursing. After feeding, the baby is burped and changed and put back to bed, soothed and supported. Intended for parents to rest and receive support, as rest is valuable for physical and emotional well being.


Overnight support scheduling options include:

a minimum of 8hrs per night/per shift. 

Overnight care can be as little as one night a week or extended to either 5-7 nights of care, usually a minimum of 2 weeks and have been known to stay on positions for as long as 4-6 months.
