While nursing may be natural, that does not mean it's easy or that it comes naturally to everyone. In home lactation support can help you get a great start to your breast/chestfeeding relationship. Lactation specialists offer supportive care, information, and strategies to help build your confidence and success. It all starts with assessing the situation by watching a feeding. We assist you in finding the comfortable positions for you and your child to achieve a pain-free latch and learn this new skill together.
In home visits are usually 2-3 hours long a few times a week for the first 2-3 months of baby's life. Overnight hours may be available. Parents can get extra sleep, eat a nourishing meal, or just relax. Postpartum doulas share infant care and calming tips. They offer baby feeding options, sibling care, and holistic meals and snacks for optimal postnatal nutrition. Many doulas also include light cleaning and household organization in their services.
Birth doulas provide emotional, physical, and educational support during your pregnancy and the birthing process. Your vision for birth will be supported, with a great emphasis on your healthy family, an empowering journey, and creating a cherished memory. Services include prenatal visits where you connect with your doula and share your vision; on-call support for 2 weeks before and after your estimated due date; continuous support during your labor and delivery; as well as 1-2 postpartum visits.
