Holistic Postpartum Doula For a Day!
Most often the mother goes from being cared for and nourished in pregnancy to second-best once the baby has arrived.
Get extra personal and holistic support throughout the entirety of your journey into motherhood. If you think you need a break and want to feel celebrated, this package is right for you. I will support your new family in any way I can for 4-hour daytime shifts, and beyond to help you rest, bathe, and bond with your new baby. Imagine this, I come in, talk with you and check in with how you are doing, make you some nourishing food, wipe up any lingering messes, make you some herbal tea with herbs specific to healing, and draw your herbal sitz bath. Then afterward, get you set up for a guided meditation and healing Reiki session and set you and your baby up for a restful sleep.
Baby often dictates our day but here is what can be offered.
Optional 1-hour Reiki sessions with you and your baby
Nourishing meal prep
Locally sourced herbal remedies like Herbal Teas, Sitz Baths, Yoni Steams, and Supportive Tinctures.
Lactation support and referrals to trusted IBCLCs
Help with appointments
So often mothers get forgotten, so I will make sure you feel nurtured and cared for while you heal. My goal is to support you in your postpartum transition for you to feel secure, supported, informed, and cared for. 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 babywearing, baby care tricks, newborn sleep shaping, safe sleep 7, bathing, feeding, and more. I can answer breastfeeding and pumping questions and get you the best lactation help for you to have a smooth breastfeeding relationship with your new baby.
Many like me to be there when the partner has to go back to work or for just a needed nurturing break, a judgment-free person to talk to, and the rest you deserve.
