Most often the mother goes from being cared for and nourished in pregnancy to second best once baby has arrived.
Get extra personal support throughout the entirety of your journey into motherhood. As your birth doula, I come to visit but if you think you need a break, this add on package might be right for you. I will support your new family in any way I can for 4-6 hour day time shifts including, light chores, meal prep, newborn care, lactation help and beyond to help you rest, shower and bond with your new baby. So often mothers get forgotten so I will make sure you feel loved and cared for while you heal. I will stay in close contact in order to routinely check how you’re doing and offer anything needed. My goal is to continue that support from your birth into your postpartum transition in order for you to feel secure, supported, informed and cared for.
I can prepare a meal, do some light chores around the house, like laundry, dishes, wiping surfaces, organizing baby's nursery. My goal is to make sure you have time to shower and sleep so you can feel rested and confident in the care you give your child. You can't pour from an empty cup so let me refill that for you.
I can also share with you the best resources available for your needs and show you things like baby wearing, baby care tricks, bathing, feeding and more. I can answer breast feeding and pumping questions and get you the best lactation help for you to have a smooth breast feeding relationship with your new baby.
Many like me to be there when the partner has too go back to work or for just a needed break, a judgement free person to talk to and the rest you deserve.
