Postpartum Doula Package $600 (+ HST)

The postpartum is the most crucial period for support. It is a time of transition to a new role, potential for mental health concerns to emerge due to stress and sleep deprivation, and it is an optimal time to build attachment with baby. The role of the postpartum doula is to offer emotional and physical support to birth parent, partner (if there is one), and family.

Research shows that parents who are supported in the postpartum period have a reduction in postpartum depression and anxiety, and adjust to parenthood quickly.

Package Includes:
– 4 postpartum visits (3 hours per visit)
– Assistance with newborn care
– Breastfeeding support
– Emotional support
– Assessment of adjustment to parenthood/mental health
– Help create postpartum plan: visitors, roles and responsibilities, sleep plan
– Family adjustment strategies
– Light housework and meal preparations
– Help with developing coping strategies to soothe new baby
– Provide community resources
– Answer questions and concerns
– Unlimited text, call and email support
– Additional postpartum support $50/hour
