Postpartum Doula Services

Supporting parents where they are at.

You have questions.

You feel unsure of yourself.

You need support.

Becoming a parent is exciting and a major transition in your life. You have questions, you question your ability to care for baby, and just feel overwhelmed.

You need help!

I provide day and/or overnight support to improve your new parent experience. I help you however you need help. Need a shower? I can hold the baby! Need help learning how to soothe, burp, swaddle? I can share my experience with you.

I am here if you need to ask questions (don’t worry! – I have heard it all!). You don’t have to just survive – you can thrive!

During our consultation or the first session, we will talk about any household tasks that I can complete for you – laundry, meal prep, dishes, etc.

My #1 priority is that you get restful sleep, so only quiet tasks will be completed. I ask that a space for me to rest be available so that once all tasks are complete I’m able to rest if baby is sleeping.

What Is A Doula?
Who is A Doula For?

As a postpartum doula I am here to help you lessen the overwhelm and to help you find your footing as a new parent. This looks different for every family – since every family has their own unique needs.

Having a doula now is even more important as we are being isolated from social distancing.

How do you support me overnight if I am breastfeeding?

I stay with your baby and bring baby to you when they wake up. I can get you a drink or snack while you are feeding baby. I take baby back once you are done feeding to burp/change diaper and then soothe baby back to sleep. This lets you go straight back to sleep and get the most rest in between feedings.

I have support from family/friends. Why do I need a doula?

Family and friends are great for support! The challenge is that they often do not have experience or may offer biased information. I’m here to offer the support that you need – unbiased and non-judgemental. I help you on your parenting journey and meet you where you are. I have experience with providing support to many families and bring all that experience with me.

How long is a typical shift?

During daytime hours of 8 AM-8 PM, I provide a minimum shift of 3 hours. Overnight shifts are a minimum of 8 hours and tend to be from 10pm-6am or 11pm-7am. We can chat to discuss a timing that works best for your family.

How do I schedule my shifts?

You can use my online calender to book your sessions quickly and easily. If you have any questions you can also email me at info@jennifermuirdoula.com
