Postpartum Doula Services & Pricing
Rest, relax and rejuvenate and enjoy!
Now you’re back home after your birth. You and your partner are gazing at your newborn, and it’s unbelievable how much love you have for this tiny new member of your family. You can’t imagine life being anymore perfect than this moment. Then you realize that you haven’t showered in 3 days, your dirty laundry is piling up and the dog hasn’t gone on a proper walk in nearly a week. Suddenly the reality of how different your life is hits you and you wonder how you will manage all of life’s tasks when you’re responsible for the care of this beautiful, little human.
Then your postpartum doula from Piedmont Doulas knocks quietly on the door and greets you with a smile! She reminds you she’s there to help you adjust to this new life. Educated and experienced, ready to help! Whether you need to take a shower, return phone calls or just take a walk with the dog she can help you. Not sure the best way to bathe, clothe or diaper your newborn? Let us assist you. Need us to make lunch for your three year old while you breastfeed the baby? We’ve got it! Baby laundry piled up to the ceiling? We are queens of laundering baby onesies and bibs. Just need to get more of that sweet, lovely thing called sleep? Let us hold your newborn while you snooze away happily. Most importantly, while you’re taking a minute to yourself you can rest assured that your baby is being cared for by a professional postpartum doula or newborn care specialist.
What if you have questions or just need to talk during your postpartum doula’s shift? We do that too! Postpartum doulas can offer you encouragement, reassurance, support and education that address the physical, emotional and educational needs of the whole family. We have a list of community resources at the ready. We listen, are compassionate, assist in a thoughtful and kind manner, and are a priceless resource for your family.
