Postpartum Doula Services

Postpartum care is aimed at mothering the new mother and embracing the new or expanded family with caring assistance and encouragement. Education, emotional support, infant feeding help, baby care, and practical help around the home are all part of the doula experience.The Postpartum Doula’s job is to make the transition to parenthood easier for new parents, to help mom during her recovery period and to observe the family's needs and provide the necessary instruction and support.

A brand new baby rests on her adoring mother's chest while their doula prepares a nourishing smoothie for mom.

If you've thought, as a new or expectant parent, that there should be a manual for this...you're right! And that's exactly what a postpartum doula is for their clients!

Investment for Care:

  • Hourly rates are in the range of $25-40/hour depending on schedule and number of babies.

  • Prepaid packages of hours are always available at a discount over invoiced hours and clients who combine services (such as postpartum hours and placenta encapsulation) always receive a package discount.

  • Reserving your hours prenatally can ensure you don't miss out on these valuable services because your doula booked up in advance!
