Distance & In-Person Postpartum Doula Services:
It would be a pleasure to support you and your family with postpartum Doula services. A postpartum Doula supports infants and families with their unique needs – the options are infinite. Each parent / family has different needs, thus it is difficult to define the multitude of ways in which I can support you. Here is a brief overview to give you an idea of the types of services I can provide, but my services are dictated by my clients in consultation with them.
All postpartum services include one free consultation via phone / FaceTime to determine the family’s / mother’s needs. I will also be available via text for support outside of our scheduled sessions throughout the time period in which I am supporting a family/parent.
