WomanWyse Doula Services Spiral Yellow

 

As a postpartum doula, my primary goal is to support your family in any way that you need to help ease the transition as you welcome your new family member. This support extends to the whole family as I view each member of the family as an integral part of this postpartum puzzle. Inviting me into your home for support may include any of the following:

  • Breastfeeding/infant feeding support
  • Newborn care; giving the parent (s) has a chance to catch a nap or take a shower
  • Answering questions related to newborn care & reassuring parents of their natural instincts
  • Helping siblings to adapt to their new world
  • Providing resource suggestions as needed with a deep knowledge available resources in the community
  • Light housework to diminish the overwhelm and bring about increased calmness in the home
  • Preparation of healthy meals & snacks to reduce the burden of meal prep and help keep the family nourished
  • Run errands for the family to take additional items off the parents’ plate
  • Provide emotional support during this transformative life experience
