IN PERSON POSTPARTUM CARE IS OVERNIGHT THROUGH THE DURATION OF COVID19.
WHAT DOES POSTPARTUM CARE INCLUDE?
Postpartum care is perfect for a new or expectant mom! Imagine having a support person that can provide emotional and physical support, breastfeeding support, newborn care, feeding and soothing, errands, meal planning and prep all while you sleep. I will meet with you prior to delivering your baby to develop a personalized plan that meets your breastfeeding goals. Once baby arrives, we will meet with again within 3 days to assist with postpartum care with follow-up answering any questions or concerns you may have.
Overnight care includes:
In addition to being a postpartum doula I am Certified Breastfeeding Specialist trained to educate and give tips for breastfeeding success and troubleshoot for problems to common challenges that can occur within the first few weeks such positioning and latch technique, management of milk supply and more. I also come with a wide network of professionals, so I can refer you to a Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) if breastfeeding troubles are beyond my scope of practice.
Newborn care support including diapering, first bath, soothing techniques, baby-wearing and bring baby to you when sleep.
Postpartum doulas can clean up the home with light wash and fold and load the dishwasher.
A postpartum doula can look after and care for younger siblings, so parents can rest, heal from birth, and get to know baby.
Need a fridge full of prepared snacks? Want a nutritious meal, but are recovering from a difficult birth or a cesarean? A postpartum doula can prepare a warm, home cooked meal for your family.
Grocery store. Dry Cleaner. Drug store.
OVERNIGHT BABY CARE
Postpartum doulas are happy to care for your baby while you and your partner get some much needed sleep. Only be interrupted when baby needs to nurse, and leave the diaper changes and baby care to us.
