The focus of my postpartum doula service is “Mom”. I see my service as an extra pair of hands to do “whatever Mom feels needs to be done,” i.e. take care of the baby and siblings so Mom can sleep, take care of baby or siblings so Mom can have uninterrupted time with one or the other, help with laundry, meals, dishes and house-cleaning. Furthermore, my role is an educator and health advocate – if you have questions about your baby’s care or health care, your health or other family members health we can pursue information and resources together.
