Being present at births is an amazing feeling, a calling, and probably the most intense work of a doula. It’s beautiful, messy, and always interesting. I love it, and I hope to continue to attend births for the next 40 years!
But lately I have felt a calling to expand my services and support families during the postpartum period in an extended way.
As of February 2019, I will now be taking postpartum doula clients in the Austin area!
My services include:
- Overnight care
- Breastfeeding assistance
- Bottle feeding assistance
- Care of older children
- Meal prep
- Light housework
- Emotional work (birth processing, postpartum depression/anxiety support)
- Care for pets
Postpartum work is not the same as a maid, or a nanny, or even a friend. Postpartum care from a doula means you are getting a trained pregnancy and postpartum professional who is completely devoted to you and your baby.
The newborn period is so precious, and you deserve to cherish it. Sometimes a little extra help is all it takes to make the difference.
