We want to hire you, what's next?Step 1 – Let’s meet! Schedule an interview so we can assess your needs and answer any questions you have about our postpartum doula services.
Step 2 – Send a deposit via check or paypal. Your deposit goes toward your first 2 visits. A deposit puts you on our calendar so you know you’ll have the support you want when your baby arrives.
Step 3 – Schedule time with us as needed. We offer both daytime, and overnight support.
Our post partum doulas services are meant to suit each family’s needs. We are available for daytime or overnight care. Overnight care can be a great time to catch up on much needed sleep and we’ll also offer valuable tips to help you feel more confident even when you are on your own.
Typically, we work for 3 hour shifts for daytime visits, this allows us to contribute to your bonding experience in a meaningful way. Some people like for a postpartum doula to visit on a daily basis, others prefer only 2 or 3 days a week. Your needs will likely change over time, and we are happy to adjust to make sure you have just the right amount of care.
Discuss your needs with us and we will create a schedule together.
Most people choose to hire us before they deliver their baby. This is a wonderful choice so we are available to support you and answer any questions that come up before your baby is born.
We are also available to help with breastfeeding initiation and troubleshooting should any questions arise.
If you already have a newborn at home we will do our best to work with you based on our availability. We suggest we do a consultation to discuss the services we offer and you may share any questions or concerns. Please call us to set up a consultation.
*If you are interested in giving a friend or family member a few hours of our service as a gift, we offer gift certificates.
