Postpartum Support

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.
