As a Postpartum Doula my goal is to listen to your needs, to give you the time & space to look after yourself, to make sure you are nourishing your body (with food and love!), to provide you with evidence based research and to gently guide you so you can feel confident as a parent.
This service is available at an hourly rate for daytime care and a one time fee for overnight care. I also offer the below fees at a reduced cost in an effort to make Doula services more accessible to those who cannot afford the full price.
$40/hour (minimum 4 hours) between 9am-9pm
$300 flat fee (for 8 hours) of overnight care between 10pm-8am
What is included?
My services are tailored to your unique needs and could include a combination of the following:
Helping to ease you into parenting.
Offering physical and emotional support to you and your family during the first three months of your newborns life.
Cooking (preparing meals, snacks).
Help to create a home environment that feels comfortable for you.
Light housework (laundry, tidying, dishes).
Feeding support (breast/chest/bottle).
Holding baby while you rest/shower.
Help with nighttime feeding, settling or changing so you can ensure you're getting enough hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Help both parents and siblings adjust to the new baby.
Guidance to better understand baby's cues.
Connect you with community resources.
These are just a few examples. I am happy to chat further on how I can best support you and your family.
*If you are looking to buy a large number of hours there are packages available. Contact me for more details!
If you decide I am the right fit for your family, a deposit will be required upon signing a contract to secure my services. We will then come up with a payment plan that works for everyone! Payments can be made by e-transfer or credit card.
Pay It Forward Program
There are many families who simply cannot afford a Doula. If you are in a position financially to pay for my services in full, I would love it if you would also consider adding on a donation of your choice! This will allow me to take on a few volunteer positions each year and help families in need. My focus will be on supporting BIPOC and LGBTQ+ families.
