Do you want an easier, more comfortable transition into parenthood?
Postpartum doula support will allow you to focus on what really matters: loving and bonding with your new baby, and developing your own unique ability to be the best parent for your child. The fourth trimester (first three months of a child’s life) is a crucial time for building the foundations of a strong parenting relationship. I can help you foster that innate wisdom and decision making ability that is present in you as a new parent.
Benefits of hiring a postpartum doula can include:
- more sleep
- improved coping skills
- greater self-confidence in parenting
- decreased risk of postpartum depression or “baby blues”
- increased breastfeeding success and satisfaction
As a postpartum doula, I provide education, non-judgemental support and nurturing. I may also assist with newborn care including baby massage, breastfeeding support, meal preparation and light household tasks. I offer approachable expertise and calm, dependable care in order to help you and your family thrive.
The amount of postpartum doula support you will need depends on a number of factors. Some questions that may help you determine the support you need include:
- What was your birth experience like?
- What kind of support is available from family or friends?
- How many children do you have?
- Are there any special needs (eg. premature babies or breastfeeding difficulties)?
