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.
I have been providing postpartum doula support for new families in the Puget Sound area for more than 10 years. I am a DONA and NAPS Certified Birth and Postpartum Doula, and DONA Approved Postpartum Doula Trainer, teaching at Simkin Center at Bastyr University.
