postpartum support

tailored to your needs

What does a postpartum doula actually do?

A postpartum doula's role is to nurture the nurturer - to provide support on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level to new mothers, ensuring that they receive the rest and recovery they deserve while they navigate new motherhood.

In a nutshell, it's probably easier to ask me for what you need and I'll soon tell you if it's beyond my scope or experience. 

Postpartum visits are generally three hours, depending on your needs, and we can do as many or a little as you need with your personal circumstances in mind.


Let's talk and work out a plan that is best for you.

Note: Postpartum support currently only available in conjunction with birth support. Postpartum only packages are on hold for the time being.

Some examples of what my postpartum support commonly involves:

- cooking/preparing nourishing meals, snacks and drinks

- playing and engaging with older siblings

- breastfeeding support

- emotional support/lending a non-judgemental ear

- birth and recovery debriefing

- assistance with baby wearing

- assistance with baby settling

- cloth nappy advice and assistance

- looking after baby while mum showers/makes a cuppa/whatever she needs to do

- light housework tasks such as laundry, changing sheets/bed making, tidying, watering plants, etc. 

- light cleaning tasks such as vacuuming, doing the dishes, a quick spruce up of the bathroom or kitchen, etc.
