As a Postpartum Doula and Lactation Counselor, I provide a nurturing presence, companionship and a wealth of knowledge designed to ease your transition from pregnancy to parenthood. Being supported in this manner allows your body a chance to heal, alleviates stress, workload, and reduces your risk of postpartum depression - ultimately empowering you to care for your baby in the most enriching ways possible. Support and care is tailored to suit each family's growing needs. A care plan is created and support network identified during our first meeting.
Some of my services are, but are not limited to;
Chest/breastfeeding and lactation counseling.
Provide education on infant soothing techniques, newborn care (i.e. bathing, diapering), baby-wearing etc.
Offer counseling on nutritional and herbal remedies to cleanse the womb for postpartum healing.
Support older children adjust to new family dynamics and caretaking while parent(s) and new baby sleep, shower, step out of the home, etc.
Assist with light housework and household organization related to the care of the baby, and help to prepare nourishing meals and snacks.
Screen for postpartum mood disorders.
Available by phone and email to answer any questions you have during your postpartum time and to offer you referrals for other resources as needed.
Fees: range from 40- $60 per hour, rates are negotiated based on income.
