Postpartum Doula Services

How can a Postpartum Doula help?

The role of a postpartum doula is to provide in-home support to your family after your new baby is born.

Pregnancy and labor are difficult, transformative processes even in the best situations. A postpartum doula is there to help you work through this new part of your life. Every family’s needs are different, so think of us like Mary Poppins! Sometimes we do the dishes and fold your laundry, sometimes we play with your older kids, and sometimes we’re just here to help you talk through your emotions. 

Unlike a nanny or a babysitter (whose focus is on the baby and their immediate physical needs), our primary focus as postpartum doulas is on helping parents gain confidence when taking care of their newborn. We bring skills and knowledge, and we teach you!

As postpartum doulas we do not provide medical care or advice of any kind. If your needs are beyond our scope of practice, we will refer you to an appropriate medical provider. 

Postpartum Doula support can be infant care.

Postpartum Doula Packages

Postpartum doula support may include any of the following, according to your needs:

  • Supporting a healthy physical recovery after birth, whether vaginal or cesarean. 
  • Postpartum depression / anxiety identification and support. 
  • Infant feeding (breastfeeding, bottle feeding, or formula feeding). 
  • Routine infant care, sibling care, or pet care.
  • Overnight newborn care and feeding support. 
  • Light meal preparation. 
  • Light housekeeping and laundry. 
  • Errand running or grocery shopping. 
  • Accompaniment to physician / midwife appointments.
  • Other needs as identified by your doula.
  • Hourly Postpartum Care


If you know that you want postpartum doula support but you’re not sure how often or how much, this may be the option for you! A retainer of $140 is due at contract signing to hold your due date on our calendar. After your baby is born, your sessions are scheduled, tracked by your doula, and invoiced weekly. When you no longer have need of our services, your retainer is refunded.

Services are scheduled at your convenience, for up to five days per week. Daytime postpartum doula services are for a minimum of 4 hours between 9am and 9pm. Overnight postpartum doula services are a maximum of 8 hours between 9pm and 9am.
