In order to assess if I am the doula who will serve your family best, I offer an initial, free consultation.
Phone & Email Support // Covid-19
As your postpartum doula, I offer complimentary phone and email support.
For families who, due to Covid-19 concerns, prefer remote support, I offer virtual postpartum support, in 1 or 2 hour sessions.
Virtual Support Fee: $75 per hour.
Postpartum doula fee: $45 per hour. Payment due upon receipt. Minimum of 4 hours per visit.
Overnight Postpartum Care
Postpartum doula overnight fee: $45 per hour. Payment due upon receipt. Minimum of 8 hours per overnight.
After you determine I am the doula for you, I offer an optional intake visit. This includes a visit to your home so that I may see where everything is, such as cleaning supplies and laundry and meet any siblings and/or pets. This allows the first visit I have with you once baby arrives, to run smoothly and efficiently. Additionally, I will look over baby supplies and gear, and help with any questions, or make suggestions where I might see gaps. I can help with organization, and create breastfeeding and diaper changing "stations". The fee for the intake visit is $75, payment due upon receipt.
As a Postpartum Doula, I will:
- Offer evidence-based information for baby care so that families can make decisions with confidence.
- Share knowledge and tips for baby soothing.
- Sit and listen to parents as they share (if they choose) their experience of pregancy, birth and the postpartum transition to parenthood.
As a Postpartum Doula, I Do Not:
Perform any clinical tasks or provide medical treatment
Postpartum doulas are not medical professionals. I am not qualified to diagnose or treat mother, baby or family members in any medical capacity. I can refer clients to medical professionals or specialists, such as lactation specialists, as needed.
Make decisions for you
As parents, decisions regarding your care, your baby's care and your family's care, are yours.
Project any of my own beliefs onto your experience
As a postpartum doula, I care for clients from a deep rooted belief that postpartum care should be unbiased and non-judgemental.
"Sarah is amazing! She was a baby whisperer for a fussy baby. She was a great listener. I have no doubt my speedy recovery from a c-section was due to postpartum doula support." - Jill
- Include siblings and extended family in the postpartum adjustment period.
