Baby’s first few weeks can be a joyous, emotional and precious time for parents and families. But, as rewarding as life with a newborn can be, it can also be an overwhelming, sleep deprived and uncertain time. As a postpartum doula, I help parents juggle household responsibilities, catch up on much needed sleep, provide resources, tips and tricks, the inside scoop on baby products, and care for mom so she can take care of baby.
Each family has different needs that may evolve from day-to-day. A postpartum session can include anything that feels supportive to the family.
Let’s face it, most babies are not on the sleep schedule we would like them to be. And really, they shouldn’t be in those early days! Here’s where I can help. You go to sleep, I’ll take care of the rest. I’ll wake with baby, bottle feed, change diapers, and rock baby back to sleep. Breastfeeding? No problem! I’ll bring baby to you to feed in bed and quickly take baby back to the nursery to rock back to sleep. You get the sleep you need, tips for healthy sleep habits, and baby has all their needs met.
