Postpartum Doula Service
As a postpartum doula, I will focus on the new mother. I will be her buffer zone to unwanted distractions and guard the sanctuary of her home. I will make sure she is getting the rest she needs, that she is eating well, or that she gets that coveted shower. I will meet her emotional needs with companionship, a listening ear and if necessary a shoulder to lean on. I will assist with the care of the newborn by answering any questions that may come up, but I won't replace mom and dad as the caregiver. I will help the new family adapt to their new roles with reassurance and encouragement. Other tasks include: mother caregiver, breastfeeding assistance, infant care and advice, educator, sibling caregiver, light housework, meal preparation, errand runner.
My fee is based on geography and need. I will be happy to arrange an interview with you at your convenience. Email
If your physical and emotional needs are being met with the help of family and friends, but you still have questions about breastfeeding, newborn care, newborn sleep, bonding, or other topics that come up while transitioning to parenthood, then this package is for you. If your budget doesn't have room for extended postpartum support, but you are feeling overwhelmed with the challenges of new parenthood, then this is an affordable way to get started.
You will receive a half hour phone consultation so we can get to know one another. Then I will spend 4 hours in your home to give you hands - on instruction and personal attention. We then follow up with another half hour phone conversation.
The fee for this package is $250 with additional hours available at $35/ hour. Email
Doula For a Day
You need a break! I’ll do the laundry, make dinner, run errands, or take care of the baby while you get a shower; or even better, a nap. Maybe you just want a little help with learning how to give a bath, swaddle, diapering, or figuring out sleep cycles.
Availability is based on time and geography. Standard fee of $45/ hour. Call 206-595-3240 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
