The support of a Postpartum Doula has been shown to ease the transition to parenthood, boosting parental confidence, improving successful breastfeeding rates and reducing the likelihood of postpartum depression. As a Postpartum Doula I offer non-medical support to the new mother, her partner, and the whole family during the time directly before and after childbirth. I will come to your home on a regular basis as agreed upon (usually daily or three times per week) to offer you support.
Postpartum Doula services include:
– breastfeeding support
– healthy eating for breastfeeding and recovering energy
– establishing a routine for baby and family
– changing, bathing and grooming the baby
– infant massage and developmental exercises
– laundry and basic housekeeping
– meal planning, shopping, cooking and clean up
– physical recovery exercises for mothers
Postpartum Doula services are particularly helpful for those without family support nearby, or those who would rather have the support of a neutral party to help alleviate family tensions.
Postpartum Doula Services are charged at an hourly or weekly rate agreed upon when signing a contract. Hourly rates in the USA and UK begin at $30 or £30 per hour respectively with a minimum of 4 hours per booking. Minimum of 3 weeks booking preferred. Serving families in Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, and the greater Phoenix metro area.
Postpartum Doula Consultation – One time home visit for 2-4 hours covering all baby essentials, whether it be your first baby or your fourth baby, and leaving you with the peace of mind that you know what to do. Starting at $300.
