Postpartum Doula Services

Postpartum Doulas are expertly trained professionals who provide in-home care for your growing family.

They take into account the physical, emotional, and practical needs of the entire family to ensure a smooth and stress-free start.

Doula services

As your doula, my role is to support you and make you feel comfortable as you transition into your new role as a parent. I will hold space for you and care for you in whatever way that feels right to you as this is your journey. In a most perfect space, we will be able to connect prenatally and see if things feel right. My goal is for you to feel supported and to feel as though you have a community. 

$60/hour (4 hour minimum) dayshift only

I offer a calm, nurturing presence in your home and provide guidance and encouragement during those precious first 6 weeks, so that you can nest, bond, heal, adjust, and integrate. I educate you on newborn care, baby wearing, soothing, and sleep so that you feel informed and capable of caring for and calming your baby.

The doulas in our doula collective have completed their doula training and attended less than 10 clients.

They continue their training with workshops, mentor guidance and shadowing with experienced doulas who are on call to them as they become experienced doulas.
