Postpartum Doula Support
POSTPARTUM DOULA SUPPORT
I am expecting twins in early 2023 and will not be taking on any more postpartum doula clients until further notice. Please email me for a list of my favourite, local postpartum doula recommendations.
My mother-led care model means that each visit is unique to you and your needs. Each visit begins with a cup of nourishing tea and warming check in. A opportunity for me to meet you exactly where you are and assess exactly what you need.
From here I provide a diverse range of holistic support to help you feel held and cared for when you need it most. My support includes but is not limited to: Addressing any postpartum conditions, emotional support, supply relevant teas, herbs, soaks and/ or tinctures, traditional belly binding, holistic breastfeeding support, hold the baby while you rest, soak in a herbal sitz soak or bath, clean and tidy the home, prepare nourishing meals, run local errands and supermarket shop, babysit older children in the home or I am able to come along to help at appointments.
My nourish packages include a whole week of food for mama including 5 days worth of breakfast, lunch, dinner & snacks. The meal deliveries include a variety of meals specifically designed to nourish your postpartum journey. I can be flexible to meet any dietary requirements including plant-based, gluten free and/ or dairy free. All food is prepared using local spray-free and organic where possible including organic meat and homemade organic bone broth. I make a combination of Village for Mama recipes and other nourishing recipes I love.
There is no rhyme or reason to the early weeks of motherhood and so my care is open and flexible. I will always visit within the first 48 hours of your little loves arrival.
I offer 4 hours of care each week either as one long visit or two shorter visits.
All packages include 2 prenatal visits and unlimited text or phone support at any stage of your pregnancy and postpartum journey.
Additional support hours are available.
In-home treatments (massage, acupuncture, closing of the bones etc.) can be arranged at an additional charge.
I can source and purchase any relevant postpartum supplements, supplies and food if requested and invoice for these separately.
All food options are for mama but family meals are also possible at an additional charge of ingredients only.
If you require care for other children while you go into hospital, this is an option and can be discussed and quoted depending on your particular circumstances.
