MY APPROACH TO POSTPARTUM CARE

You may have hear it said that when a baby is born, so is a mother. Honoring the fragility of newborn mothers and their need for nurturing of both mind and body serves as the foundation of my approach to postpartum care. The fourth trimester is a sacred time of healing and transition that requires proper nutrition, body work and emotional support. Without these elements, mothers are left susceptible to challenges both physically and mentally far beyond the first year of life. It is my goal as a doula to help mamas feel rested, nourished and confident as they acquaint themselves with their role as mother, whether it's their firstborn or sixth.

PRENATAL VISITS

Prenatal visits are an opportunity to build relationship and learn more about you and your family's needs and expectations for postpartum support. We will create a care plan, curate a menu of healing foods and establish our expectations for each visit. Ideally, these visits should take place in-home to acquaint myself with your nest however, virtual visits are an option if preferred.

PREGNANCY SUPPORT

We will be in communication during your pregnancy so that I can be aware of any changes to your birth plan, postpartum needs and any resourcing that may be required. If you have hired a separate birth doula, they will be your primary support in pregnancy but anything may impact our care plan will need to be communicated with me.

POSTPARTUM VISITS

Over the course of 5 weeks, we will schedule out our visits. Whether you have opted for the Basic or Premium Package we will fit our visits into these 5 weeks. Each visit will involve healing food & beverage, a mental check-in to process any emotions & many opportunities for rest. I am available to take over newborn care so that mom & partner can rest or accomplish various tasks of their own. I do not perform household chores however, I will tidy up after my food prep and visit. My focus is on mom, ensuring she is nourished and on a successful path of holistic healing. I will provide lactation, sleep solution & newborn care support as needed!

LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY

As a special perk to my clients, I will bring my camera to a visit of your choosing to capture intimate moments in the first weeks of your baby's life. These will be casual, candid lifestyle photos rather than posed professional shots. I am not a professional photographer but love capturing sweet moments from a different perspective.
