Postpartum support is entirely personal. This is why I don't offer packages, rather offer the option to purchase a total number of hours to be used in a way that supports your family best.
Night shifts are 8 or 10 hours long. I also offer a limited number of 12s and 24s. My maximum is 5 nights per week, however I can partner with another trusted doula if 7 night a week support is requested.
The first few nights home can be exciting & exhausting. As you settle in, having support to navigate the intricacies of feeding & care with expert education and gentle guidance, helps to reduce stress and allow you space to get to know your new baby.
Night shifts focus on recuperative sleep, as well as establishing nights from days . Having someone to keep eyes on baby, paying attention to the details, is the ultimate when it comes to peace of mind.
All additional services I offer, registry, babywearing, sleep & feeding feeding support, as well as a car seat installation are included in my hourly rate. I do this because when it comes to your new baby, you can't always predict their needs. This allows me to take a wholistic approach as I get to know you, tailoring care to your specific situation, goals and priorities.
I am also available via text during business hours.
One hour virtual session is included to discuss registry planning, and how to choose gear such as car seats, strollers, bassinets and other large and small ticket items that may take lifestyle into consideration.
One hour virtual session to go over preferences and expectations, and create a personalized plan for postpartum.
One two hour in person session one month prior to birth to walk through and get to know your home & setup, as well as any pets you have, to ensure you're ready to welcome baby! We will also install your car seat and make sure you're comfortable using it.
