Postpartum Doula

Postpartum Doula
Certified Newborn Care Specialist  
 

 I have over 21+ years of hands on experience with Singletons, Preemies, Twins, Babies with medical needs.  Typically I work the “night shift” (9pm-7am) so parents can recover and rest following birthing. Getting adequate sleep is essential to healing and recovery after pregnancy and Birthing. Parents will get undisturbed rest and I will do quiet, light chores in between baby feedings/snuggles, as time permits.
Night support is a 9 hour minimum; Contracts are flexible in duration taking into consideration the goals and needs of each Family. While I do have an extensive background in Lactation; I support Families in however they chose to nourish their baby. I tailor my support and care to meet the individual needs of each Family.
