Postpartum Doula

Postpartum Doula

Mary Poppins for New Parents (or Parents Again)

POSTPARTUM DOULA EXTRAORDINAIRE

When your partner goes back to work, and you find yourself in need of some extra loving care as a new mother, Hope can help you welcome baby home and gently transition into doing parenthood on your own. She can take care of household duties for you such as tidying up the kitchen or sweeping the floor so that you can focus on getting a nap and not stress over everything piling up. Sometimes a warm bath, a cup of tea and a listening ear for your birth story, or some breastfeeding help are all you really need to make it through your day.  This postpartum doula can take your stir crazy dog for a walk, show you how to give your baby a bath, or help you prep a meal or two. Breathe a big sigh of relief, she’s the non judge-mental support you’ve been wanting as you navigate the world of “advice” for new parents.
