A Postpartum Doula is a woman who offers nonjudgemental support during the fourth trimester, which is the first three months of your postpartum experience.
She offers newborn care education, self care tips, nutrition know-how, organizational help. A postpartum doula may assist with sibling inclusion and overall family transition time support.
Postpartum Doulas have experience with a variety of newborn feeding styles and how to support mom in getting the best recovery possible from childbirth and we offer additional resources as needed for your new family.
What are the benefits of hiring a Postpartum Doula?
You can SLEEP! Sleep is integral to the success of new parenthood. Sure, as parents of singletons most of us go through the motions half awake, right? The parents of multiples or with a sick baby are severely sleep deprived and all other functions of life come to a halt until we can get people caught up and at least semi-rested. The mothers I have worked with who are struggling with Postpartum Depression find that 8 hours a night of good sleep makes all the difference in their recovery and ability to manage the day time hours without as much support.
You get to become or stay more organized. We know what it’s like to have a new baby in the house. The dog no longer gets walked, you can’t see the laundry room floor, you have no idea when you showered last and now own every kind of nipple cream and nursing pad that Target offers in finding the right one that works.
You have experienced support at your side to help you transition back into the workforce as we work on sleep and feeding patterns with you and baby.
You get on the spot coaching for the variety of concerns that come up during this time.
Families who work with postpartum doulas often feel more at ease and confident as they build their parenting skills.
Moms become empowered by the support around breastfeeding as we pull in any additional trusted resources as necessary to make this a success.

"I was always tired, bloated, and couldn't get through the day because my energy was so slow. I now have more energy to get through my day, can digest foods better and feel great. I can't imagine my life without this program!" -KW
"I had shaking of my hands/arms similar to Parkinson's Disease (at age 26), had spent thousands of dollars on doctors over the years, to no avail. Within one week on my Nutrition Response Testing program my hands were stabilized." -Greg M.
"My son had eczema when I initially came to help him and didn't realize my body also needed support. My sons skin is now clear and healed naturally. I am 25 pounds lighter and sleep better. I have more energy and overall my whole family eats better and feels better." -Rachel J.
