Postpartum Support

From the inside to the outside… now what? I give parents a chance to rest, recharge, and reflect as you settle into a new routine by providing families with positive and affirming support after birth.

 

Consultation

A free consultation is offered for anyone thinking of hiring a doula for postpartum support. The consultation is approximately 30-40 minutes in-person or via phone during which we discuss postpartum preferences, questions you may have about doula services, and go over the details of the contract.

Postpartum services can include:

  • Assistance with newborn care

  • Experience with breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, and formula feeding and will support you with whatever choice is right for your family.

  • Emotional support such as processing birth story and any necessary referrals

  • Household tasks, including errands, light housekeeping, and some meal preparation

  • Sibling and pet care

  • Support for partner

  • Unlimited phone and email contact at other times

$25 per hour

Shifts start at a minimum of 2 hours to a max of 6 hours and typically ask for an initial commitment of 6 hours. Sliding scale services offered to those in need.

A portion of service costs go to Ancient Song Doula Services who are working to shift the narrative and address implicit bias and racism within maternal and reproductive health.
