  • Physical, emotional, and informational labor support for you AND your support partner.

  • Up to two hours of immediate postpartum support and feeding initiation assistance.

  • 1-2 postpartum visits to ease your transition into parenthood.

  • Six weeks of postpartum phone and email support.

Postpartum care

Postpartum doulas help create a smooth transition for your family as you settle into your “new normal”. This can -and will- look different for every family. Some families only need short term care in the first days after coming home, while others will benefit from on-going postpartum doula care for months after birth. Our postpartum doulas are experts at helping you determine where your needs lie.

 

Brave Birth Postpartum Doulas Provide:

  • Answers to all your newborn questions.

  • Help with basic breastfeeding and bottle feeding.

  • Hands on help with infant soothing techniques.

  • Facilitation of recovery and healing after birth.

  • Info on how to use all that baby gear you bought.

  • Help with setting up systems in your home to help smooth transitions.

  • Light household chores and cooking.

  • SLEEP RELIEF

  • Complimentary attendance at our weekly New Parent Groups.

We’ve created some Postpartum Doula Care Packages
to further simplify your postpartum planning!
