Postpartum Doula Services
A postpartum doula provides physical, emotional, and informational support in the days (or weeks and months) following the arrival of your baby. We offer a range of services to nurture you and aid in the transition of adding a new member to your family.
A doula's role at times may be as simple as holding your baby while you shower or sleep, or talking with you about your experiences as a parent.
A postpartum doula will also act as a source of information, providing referrals as needed. Each day's tasks will depend on your priorities, as discussed before beginning services, and can be adjusted to meet your needs as your postpartum experience progresses.
Our doulas work closely together so we can meet a family's needs 24/7 as you adjust to life with a new baby.
We offer a wide-variety of options; from one daytime visit ($180) to a package of four daytime visits ($480), from one overnight visit ($450), to a package of four nights ($1620) or a package of ten nights ($4050) and combinations of both. You can see all of our services and packages here. Travel fees may apply.

A postpartum doula is a wonderful gift. It’s a way for out-of-town friends and family to provide hands-on care when the new family needs it most. It is also a very practical gift for first time families needing to learn the ropes of caring for a new baby, as well as for families adding more children and who would rather have support than a second set of baby furniture. All of our packages can be purchased as gift certificates.
