Postpartum Doula Services

As a postpartum doula, I’m here to ease you and your family through the transition to parenthood.  Whether this is your first baby or your fifth, you and your family need support. For the mother specifically, I provide a listening ear, companionship, reassurance, and some much needed rest.

My goal is to help you feel supported, empowered, and confident as you enter this new phase of parenthood.

          A $150 deposit is due upon signing a service agreement. This ensures my availability for your                family, includes a 1-hour prenatal visit in your home as well as the first 3 hours as your doula.

If you contact me before your baby is born, we will meet in your home before baby is born to establish a service agreement, as well as provide some postpartum education. Once baby is born, we will establish a week to week schedule according to your needs. If you have found me after your birth, we can arrange a meeting to create a service agreement.
