A postpartum doula's work is to support the family so that they can care for the new baby. What a postpartum doula does in the home depends on the needs of each individual family. It can include basic household chores like cleaning, cooking, and laundry. Other times it involves answering questions about new baby care, helping parents to find and use a baby carrier that works for them, playing with older children or taking the dog for a walk. A postpartum doula is specifically trained to know how to provide care and support for your growing family.
Postpartum Doula services work best when scheduled in 3-4 hour increments. Contact us to discuss how your family can benefit from our services. Theresa is a CAPPA trained Postpartum Doula, with over 20 years experience. She brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to your family.
Attention: Due to a recent change in life circumstances, I am currently unable to take on new clients. If you are an existing client or have purchased a gift card, please contact me and we can discuss appointment options. Thank you for your understanding!
