POSPTARTUM DOULAS

INFORMATIONAL - EMOTIONAL - CUSTOMIZED SUPPORT

As postpartum doulas, we're there to support you in the transition to parenthood. We empower parents and help you build your parenting skills, help with feeding (however you choose to do so), assist with newborn care while parents shower, eat, sleep, etc. and provide resources and referrals when we see a need or questions arise outside of our scope. Think of us as your insta-new bestie that will come into your home and take care of you!

Scheduling

When signing up with us, you purchase hours in "chunks" and can then use them toward daytime and/or nighttime shifts. We'll work with you to assign doula(s) for your first shift to assist with your needs. For future shifts, you'll simply schedule those directly with your doula(s).

 

Minimum Hour Requirements: 

  • Day: 4 hours

  • Night: 8 hours
