Postpartum doula services can be arranged to suit the needs of the individual family.  My role as your doula after birth is to ease the adjustment into parenthood, helping to make this important transition as peacefully and seamlessly as possible. I offer self care assistance- including meal preparation, herbal teas, foot rubs, light household chores, as well as running errands, all in an effort to help you rest and to restore after birth.  Postpartum doulas provide the opportunity for parents to bond with their new baby, without being overwhelmed doing everything all by themselves.

 

We were fortunate enough to find Jackie for postpartum doula services. She was friendly and knowledgeable and did a great job helping our family. There were a number of particular suggestions she offered that made a world of difference in our experience of the first several weeks. She was kind, understanding, and helpful, and we felt comfortable having her around the house assisting in various capacities. She prepared some delicious healthy meals, did laundry, and helped with our newborn. Most importantly, she helped me as a new mother with tips on breastfeeding, sleeping arrangements, and more. I would happily recommend her to anyone for postpartum doula support. Thank you, Jackie!
