Your birth doula will provide emotional, physical, and informational support tailored to YOUR personal goals and values. Individualized support is important and will be at the forefront of your care. Doulas do not have a preference for your birth plan. We help you figure out what it is you desire, and then support your choices. As a birth doula that believes in choice, I want what YOU want.
Professional childbirth preparation and face to face support has been reported to boost morale, decrease intervention, increase confidence and reduce anxiety/fear which lends to a more positive and satisfying birth memory and postpartum transition!
Similar to a “night nanny” and often confused for a “night nurse”, an overnight postpartum doula will care for your baby (or babies) while you sleep, as well as provide lactation support and perform light household duties. Whatever it takes to help make the postpartum transition more seamless and enjoyable.
Basic newborn care such as diaper changes, feedings, and soothing are taken care of while you rest. Whether you only need a few nights of sleep or would like an extended period of care, a postpartum doula might be a great addition to your support system. Sleep peacefully, knowing your family is in good hands.
Conveniently located in the Northeast section of Philadelphia, bordering Bucks county with easy access to RT 1, I76, I95 and both PA and NJ turnpikes.
