Postpartum Services


I will listen to your concerns and help you find your confidence as a new parent.  As your postpartum doula I provide individualized support around:

  • Listening, understanding and compassion around the big emotions of postpartum.
  • A solid action plan of home support for prevention and minimizing of postpartum depression and anxiety, as well as excellent referrals for greater needs.
  • Solid information around what to expect and what’s normal for breastfeeding, emotional adjustment to postpartum and newborn behavior and development.
  • In home, in the moment, lactation education and support, as well as referrals to highly qualified lactation consultants when needed.
  • Individualized skill building for settling a fussy baby, as well as a break from your baby so you can rest and come back recharged.


Let me help you move from new parent, overwhelmed and uncertain, to a Calm and Confident parent, knowing you have the resources and skills to parent your child well!

I generally provide 3-4 hour long daytime shifts (but can customize to your needs) several times a week within the first three months postpartum. We set up an initial schedule and often adjust as we go along to meet your needs. Some people will need just a couple of shifts to build skills, or get a break from constant baby care, while others will benefit from ongoing care through a longer time period.

My services are tailored to your needs and not bound by a minimum hours requirement or specific package arrangement. I am not currently offering overnight doula care, but am happy to refer you to qualified doulas who can provide that support.

For those who are reserving my time prior to the birth of their baby I highly recommend a Prenatal Meeting (separate from the “meet and greet”) for postpartum planning.  At that meeting we will get to know each other, put together a plan for a smooth and enjoyable postpartum time and I can share what I know about what to expect in the postpartum transition period for parents and babies.
