postnatal doula support services.
Your baby is here. You are bouncing in between states of pure wonder and exhaustion. You need help and that is both okay and expected.
Parents, like babies, need nourishing meals, rest and ease, so that the transition into this special period is as smooth as possible. As a postnatal doula, I am able to support families in creating stress-free environments by offering the following:
Help with post birth recuperation and postnatal comfort measures
Lactation support if needed and/or desired, as well as provide referrals
Basic preparation of warm and nutritious foods
Light housekeeping necessary to the daily function of the home
Run errands within walkable and acceptable distance
Caring for baby while parent(s) nap, shower or care for other children
Support parent(s) in learning and caring for their newborn as it relates to bathing, feeding and soothing baby
Provide guidance in babywearing and cloth diapering
Answer any questions to the best of my abilities by offering non judgemental emotional and informational support
For families interested in working with me in this capacity, I offer a complimentary in person interview so that we can learn more about each other. I only serve Manhattan and Brooklyn clients currently.
