Birth Essence is a place where women and their partners can feel supported, empowered, and better informed to make the best decisions for achieving the type of birth that they want. Whether you need a birth doula, help with breastfeeding, or a baby wearing demonstration, I am here to help!
Postpartum doula provides evidenced based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother-baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care.
A postpartum doula is there to help the family adjust to life with a newborn whether it’s just for a few days or a few weeks. Research has shown that moms, dads, and babies have an easier time with this adjustment if a good support team is in place.
Services in my package can include:
Here is an example of what a schedule might look like:
The hours that I will work will depend on the needs of each individual family! The rate for postpartum care is $15-$25 an hour with a 4 hour minimum.
During the introductory interview, a house tour is helpful for me to get the feel of the environment. Meeting the doula before the birth, in your home, helps the family become familiar and comfortable with the doula before the birth of the baby(ies) is born. If you hire me for both birth doula and postpartum doula, discounted rates will be available. I also offer an experienced mom package!
Our Breastfeeding Support Group meets on the 2nd Saturday of each Month @ 1pm at the Riverton Public Library.
