Birth and Postpartum doula services in Broome and Delaware Counties of Upstate NY
We Lost the Village
Having a baby is a major life event.
Becoming a mother is trans-formative.
You change in big ways – your body adjusts to postpartum hormones, your uterus has to shrink back down to it’s pre-pregnancy size, you make room in your heart for your baby and you adjust to all the newness of mothering this baby brings.
With support and care during this sacred season of life, we have the potential to truly thrive and be fully able to enjoy this time.
Postpartum doula care is having that extra pair of hands to help your family adjust to it’s newest addition. But it is more than just an extra pair of hands, a postpartum doula is there for emotional, physical and informational support.
Overwhelmed and Sleepdeprived
Most new parents complain about feeling overtired and overwhelmed. Functioning on little to no sleep can be exhausting and increase your odds of developing postpartum depression.
My aim is to encourage the strengthening of the parent/baby bond by letting you focus on just that. My purpose is to serve you and your family however you need it most.
I can help relieve a lot of the stress and overwhelm during this transitional time of growth for your family. Sometimes all you need is someone in your corner that believes that you can do this.
Having support to get your started on the right foot can mean the difference between enjoying your new baby and thriving, and/or feeling like you are just barely surviving.
What I do varies and is customized to your needs.
Tangible services might include:
breastfeeding/lactation/feeding troubleshooting and support
basic newborn care
light meal or snack prep
light housework (laundry, dishes, etc.)
answering newborn, breastfeeding, or postpartum questions
connecting you to helpful resources in your community
Contact me to schedule a free consult to see how I can help you and your family!
Once my services are contracted, we will meet once before baby’s arrival to talk about how I can best serve your family. This prenatal consult will also be a time for me to familiarize myself with your home so that I can better serve you when the time comes.
