The postpartum doula package totals $15- $25/hour (10-hour package minimum/2-hour minimum per day visit/5-hour for night visit), and it includes:
- Lactation support
- Basic household needs
- bottle cleaning
- nursery organization
- Grocery shopping
- Meal prep/planning
- Running light errands
- Taking care of baby(s) so mother gets time to herself (showering, nap, etc.)
- Help soothing colicky or fussy babies (soothing techniques, swaddling, etc.)
- Helping transition into parenthood/help older siblings adjust to the new baby
- Referral research as needed
- Providing a safe-space to express feelings and emotions
Postpartum services are available during the day time and the night time. Day time services have a minimum of 2-hours per visit, and night time hours have a minimum of 5-hours per visit. Mileage for running errands is included in the package fee. The final fee will be determined by location in relevance to my residence in Depew, NY.
I can accompany you to your baby’s doctors visits in the days shortly after birth, but I cannot give medical advice or diagnose/treat.
I will help you initiate breastfeeding, if that is what you choose to do. I am not a certified lactation consultant, but I can refer you to one if the need arises. If you wish to bottle feed your baby, I can help with the first few feedings if preferred.
I will help around the home by picking up daily chores/errands to help make the transition into parenthood smooth and stress free. By keeping a clean and calm atmosphere, it will allow you more precious time to bond with your new baby.
I will research referrals if needed (postpartum depression, tongue tie in infants, lactation counseling, etc)
I will provide a confidential and safe space for you to express your feelings and emotions as you transition into parenthood.
