As a postnatal doula my primary focus is to care for you as a new family and help with the transition into life with a new baby. Whether it be holding the baby so you can do some self care, or taking care of the household so you can enjoy your baby bubble, I can help. Some of the things I can offer assistance with are:
-Breastfeeding education and support
-Newborn care, and typical behaviour and development
-Holding baby while you sleep, shower, etc.
-Sibling care and support
-Management of well meaning family and friends
-Partner support and respite
-Cooking and meal prep
-Routine household management including:
I have experience cooking for various dietary preferences and restrictions and have many recipes that can be adjusted depending on the need. I cook mainly healthy, whole, balanced foods and take particular care to meet the nutritional needs of a birthing person.
My experience of working within a home and within the family dynamics allows me to anticipate and address needs without getting in the way. I approach each family with fresh eyes and non judgment as I believe that there are many right ways to raise a family.
I will make myself available by phone and e-mail during business hours to answer any questions as they come up.

Any package or combination booked will have a flexible start date depending on the arrival of your baby. I will hold space on my calendar around your due date to accommodate the hours booked.
Hours in a package can be used in 2, 3, or 4 hour sets. for example, the 12 hour package can be used over three days in 4 hour sets, or over 6 days in 2 hour sets, or combinations depending on the need.
Hours used outside of the pre-booked package will be charged at my hourly rate.
