What's a postpartum doula?

Imagine Mary Poppins in leggings. Or a best friend-for-hire that can get your baby to stop crying while you take a shower.

A postpartum doula works with a new family during the “4th trimester,” or the first 12 weeks after birth, filling the space between a midwife and a nanny. Someone once called me “Mary Poppins,” and that would be accurate except for the fact that I don’t sing.

 

Depending on your family’s needs and my current schedule, I may recommend bringing in 1 or 2 more postpartum doulas that I partner with to fully serve you. If so, 1 or 2 of us will visit at a time, tidy up a few things as needed, pop some food in the oven, and hold your baby so you can shower and nap. Once all is calm, we will quietly head out, leaving a sweet echo of our care in the form of food in the fridge, clean laundry, and some helpful tips and tidbits about baby care. I also have training and experience in working with women diagnosed with a Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorder (PMAD) such as postpartum depression.
