Postpartum doulas provide support after the baby is born up to a year. We help with baby care, emotional support, informational support, light housekeeping, older siblings, and feeding support. We we are making sure that you are eating, sleeping and shower.
We usually do one prenatal visit to plan for postpartum and how to best support you ahead of time. Then after the baby is born, we schedule as needed in typically at 4 hours shifts minimum. We encourage and teach you on how to adjust to the "new normal" so that you feel more confident as our support tapers off.
We try our best to back each other up with members of the collective, however, there might be times when we have to bring in other doulas that we know and trust to provide backup care.
