Labor and postpartum doulas are able to support the family as a whole during labor, delivery, and journeying home together. I personally enjoy encouraging the partner to help and I very much appreciate the feeding relationship between mother and baby. Booking support months in advance truly supports the chance of having an experienced doula by your side.
Whether you decide to birth at home with a licensed midwife, in a birth center, or in a hospital doulas can help in many ways. I support all families from natural births to cesareans by nurturing each family before labor, during, and following birth. I am able to support the birthing family with comfort measures, education, physical support, and of course emotional support.
A strong support system can significantly support your breastfeeding goals. Starting early leads to a happier unit who feels supported every step of the way. Common breastfeeding troubles are engorgement, latch and positioning, long with pain and infant weight gain. Reach out today for education and encouragement, I would love to be a part of your support team!
Every day changes with postpartum work depending on family size and dynamic. Postpartum doulas are on hand to do whatever the parents need to enjoy each minute they can with baby. A large part of the role of postpartum work is breastfeeding knowledge and care, newborn care, and making sure the mother and family are very comfortable and happy in their surroundings.
Every mother and family has a right way of living. I in no way believe parenting has a wrong choice. I am surrounding mothers to empower each other and raise healthy families mentally and physically. We work together as a team to create a care plan that works for your family every step of the way.
Each doula needs Basic Life Support CPR certification. I have been CPR certified for over fifteen years and have performed CPR in an emergency environment. I believe it is imperative any support in your home or environment is up to date on emergency procedures including choking protocols for infants.
