A postpartum doula provides evidenced based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care. A postpartum doula is there to help a new family in those first days and weeks after bringing home a new baby.
The primary role of a postpartum doula is to mother the mother!
You can find the postpartum services I currently offer below. If you would like to book a consultation session with me for any of these services, please send an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org

Dinner With A Doula
DINNER (WITH LEFTOVERS!) AND 4 HOURS OF SUPPORT
A great gift for new moms! I bring a large dinner (with leftovers!), take care of your new arrival while you eat, and spend 4 hours supporting you in any way you may need postpartum including breastfeeding questions, setting up a nursery or other room with you, answering any and all questions any of the family may have and refer you to local resources for those I cannot answer. The night ends with a clean kitchen (courtesy of me!) and all of my contact information for any future needs. Cost of food is included.
Placenta Encapsulation - Coming Fall 2019
What is placenta encapsulation? Placenta encapsulation is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been dehydrated, ground, and placed into capsules. Traditionally, this is taken by the mother and is believed to impart numerous health benefits.
It’s believed consuming the placenta can:
- Help to balance your hormones
- Replenish depleted iron levels
- Assist the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy state
- Reduce postpartum bleeding
- Increase milk production
- Make for a happier, more enjoyable post-natal period Increase your energy levels
