Postpartum Doula Services

Prenatal visit: at home or in office

  • Pregnancy support: nutrition, physical comfort, birth preparation, building and trusting your team, emotional wellbeing, navigating decisions.
  • Preparing for the postpartum phase: planning to thrive, laying the foundations for a peaceful and enjoyable start.

Postnatal home visits (6)

  • Nutritional planning and other preparations so that you can get nourished and be at your best to nourish your baby.
  • Hands-on bodywork (using Bowen technique and acupuncture).
  • Training in how best to release tension and recover physically (using self-acupressure and massage, positioning, and other movement exercises).  This teaches you to find comfort and get back on track by loving and eventually strengthening your postpartum body.
  • Breastfeeding support (not lactation consulting), offering the crucial emotional support needed for a mom to be able to breastfeed successfully.
  • Mama counseling and support, both practical and emotional. Care, recovery and adjustment for the mom, working through the challenges of recovering from birth and mothering a new baby.

Twice-monthly online group meetings

From the comfort of your own home, with facilitated group discussion and special topics such as pelvic-floor and abdominal recovery, baby-wearing, baby sleep and nutrition, navigating family relationships during motherhood, and more.

 “The Mama Map”

A concise guide showing you how to weave your life, goals, activities and expectations into your baby’s predictable developmental phases during the first year – so that you can flourish and flow instead of freak out and react during your first year as mama.
