As a postpartum doula I will:
I will ease the transition into your "fourth trimester" by providing the support and reassurance you need. It is my role to be present to nurture your new family and support new mothers in the first weeks after birth providing guidance with newborn care and feeding, household help, and emotional support. I am available as a mentor to answer any questions and support you and your partner in the most gentle and assuring way; all while respecting your own unique style of parenting. Postpartum care begins after the birth of your child for a minimum of 4 hours for as many days or weeks as you choose. Whether this means only a few visits or several, these services are based entirely on the needs of you and your family.
$30/hour (minimum 4 hours)
As a reflection of my commitment to increasing access to doula services, I volunteer as a doula at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania
