As a Postpartum Doula serving the Boston area, I offer:
· Newborn care and guidance
· Lactation counseling
· Grocery shopping
· Assistance with the care of older siblings
· Trash removal and recycling
· Tidying the house
· 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).
