Postpartum Doula

As a Postpartum Doula serving the Boston area, I offer: 

·       Newborn care and guidance
·       Lactation counseling
·       Grocery shopping
·       Cooking
·       Dishwashing
·       Laundry
·       Assistance with the care of older siblings 
·       Trash removal and recycling
·       Tidying the house
·       Errands
·       Other tasks may be agreed upon
  
My goal is to create a nurturing, restful atmosphere in which parents may eat, shower, nap, and recover from childbirth, surgery, or adjust to adoption.  I can offer guidance in skills such as reading baby’s cues, calming techniques, swaddling, baby wearing, bathing, cloth and disposable diapering, and elimination communication.  As your doula, I can provide breastfeeding support within the scope of an experienced Certified Lactation Counselor (such as correction of a painful latch, techniques to help with milk supply, breastfeeding twins, use of a breast pump and introducing bottles).
