Postpartum Doula Services
Hourly packages as low as $35 an hour
Postpartum Doula Support is where I come to your home for pre-scheduled "shifts" to support you and your family through the transition of adding another family member (or two!) Things I can do as a postpartum doula include:
- Help care for the infant so mom can get some time to care for herself physically and emotionally.
- Take on tasks to free up energy and focus including light housekeeping, entertaining older children, meal preparation, and more.
- Provide referrals to postnatal professionals.
- Give encouragement, advice, and reassurance on a plethora of topics including infant care, bonding, sibling transitions, and more.
What kind of things can you do as a postpartum doula?
Each time I come to your home, I ask a few questions to find out what you need the most in that moment. It may be a moment to yourself, a meal, a shower, or encouragement. And sometimes, its all of them! Whatever you need most, I make happen. Whether its preparing a meal so you can eat, settling the baby so you can shower, or entertaining older children so you can enjoy a moment of quiet while your newborn sleeps, I'm here to help with all of it.
What kinds of things can't you do as a postpartum doula?
I cannot diagnose any medical issues, but I can refer you to specialists for any complaints you may have.
I can't transport you, or your children in my vehicle, and while I can attend to your newborn or older children, an adult must remain on site.
Where do you provide postpartum doula services?
I will travel up to 30 miles each way from Willoughby, OH. A travel fee will be required beyond that radius.
Do you provide overnight services?
My available hours for postpartum doula services are 5 am to midnight. I can refer several excellent postpartum doulas who provide overnight coverage if that's what you need.
How often and when do you come?
Each shift can be anywhere from 4-6 hours and I can come anywhere from 3-6 days a week. If you need more support than that, there are other doulas I partner with to provide continuous care beyond those shifts.
