postpartum doula

Night Support (Singleton: $45, Twins/Multiples: $55)

Sliding scale based on availability

A postpartum doula can ease the transition that comes with the addition of a baby to a family, improve parental satisfaction, and reduce the risk of mood disorders.​

Wombmate's postpartum doula services include:

  • Non-judgmental emotional support 

  • Evidence-based information and on a variety of postpartum and newborn care topics

  • Nutritious meals & snacks, upon request

  • Tips, troubleshooting and support for breastfeeding, pumping, and/or bottlefeeding

  • Assistance with physical recovery from birth

  • Observing for signs of perinatal mood disorders

  • Family support, including older siblings and pets 

  • Identifying local resources and providing referrals

  • Help develop a rhythm and/or schedule so both partners can get their needs met (sleep, shower, eat, etc.)

 

At the beginning of each shift, we will discuss your priorities and needs for that shift. Wombmate typically works with new families during The Fourth Trimester, or the first 12 weeks, unless there are severe breastfeeding issues, postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, multiples, or a baby with special needs.

*Wombmate also provides night nanny services, meaning care for baby is solely being provided by myself.
