Postpartum doulas offer in-home support to families in the early stages post birth. Traditionally called “the first forty days,” it is ideal that a mother is nourished, supported, and rests as much as possible - and that’s where a doula comes in. We support the household, the mother, and the partner (as well as other siblings), to create a sense of ease, and peace as you all begin this new chapter.
Because birth is dynamic, the postpartum period is also dynamic. I flow with your needs, and meet the family where they need to be met once they are home.
A prenatal home visit is required, after initial consult, to go over the postpartum plan, set up the home making sure you have all necessary items to support you postnatally. I can answer any questions for you as we build a solid support system for your postpartum journey, talk about referrals, and resources, process any past trauma’s that may affect postpartum, and go over the extensive intake you will fill out prior to our first meeting.
All postpartum clients receive reiki as part of my service, no matter how many hours you book.
There is no minimum of hours required.
Lactation snacks, and light meals are also offered if desired.
In the even of overnight support needed, or more complex cases where a clinician is needed for either lactation, or mental health issues, I have ample resources, and support to reach out to.
Postpartum support is offered hourly at $35.00, and is comprised of individualized support for the family.
Reiki, pronounced rei-ki a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
I hold a reiki certification 1, and enjoy being able to connect with women in this incredibly beautiful tradition. Come as you are, ready to close your eyes, and just be.
Sessions are offered either in your home, or in a downtown rented space I use.
