Postpartum Doula Services

Role & Scope

Client Feedback


A postpartum doula is a woman who is trained and experienced in family life during a child's first year. 

My role is to support your family in having healthy, empowered experiences. I provide education, emotional support and practical assistance.

Postpartum doula services are especially useful if:

  • You don't have adequate assistance from your partner or family members
  • You're dealing with postpartum depression or anxiety
  • You've birthed by Cesarean or have other physical health challenges
  • You have a baby with complex medical needs
  • You're wanting more support as you adjust to parenthood
  • You're self-employed or otherwise not able to take a full year's parental leave and you need some assistance to manage it all!​

As a postpartum doula I can:

  • Answer your questions about parenting, or direct you to useful resources
  • Support you emotionally -- I'm very experienced in supporting families who have postpartum depression or anxiety in the mix (and I had postpartum depression & anxiety myself, so I understand personally, not only as a professional)
  • Provide tips and assistance with feeding
  • Care for baby so you can nap, shower or otherwise care for yourself or other family members
  • Care for older children and pets
  • Prepare food, do dishes, light cleaning and laundry
  • Run errands

My services are applicable for both short-term assistance and on-going support. Your wishes and needs direct your care. If I'm not able to meet your needs due to scheduling or scope (I no longer offer overnight care), I'm happy to refer you to other great doulas to get your needs met.

Postpartum Doula Rate ~ $30/hr
