You’re having a baby, and are as prepared as you possibly can be for the birth, but what about what happens when baby comes home? Are you ready for the transitions a new baby can bring to your life? At Mothering the Mother we have the solution for you…..hire a postpartum doula. Postpartum doulas come into your home and can help with physical, emotional, and informational support including: provider opportunities for parents to rest, teach postpartum care, and new baby care. A postpartum doula is someone there to “mother the mother”….think of it as someone there just for you and your baby.
Fee for 12 hrs of in person support: $600 - after 12 hrs an additional charge of $45 an hr will be assessed
Fee for 6 weeks of virtual support (up to 20 hrs in total - after 20 hrs an additional charge of $15 an hr will be assessed): $420
You’ve had your baby, and past the immediate postpartum period, but you are still looking for more support. Consider signing up for a first 1,000 days program. With this package your postpartum doula will visit you once a month to see how you are doing, answer questions, offer referrals, do developmental screenings, and teach you how to enhance your babies social, emotional, physical, and brain development through play.
One year program (12 visits): $600
So you are pregnant and preparing for birth, and for life after birth…..so many people put so much planning and preparation into giving birth, and they neglect planning for the realities of what comes next. At Mothering the Mother we want you to be as prepared as possible for the birth, and the transitions a new baby will bring into your lives. Our two hour planning session can help set you up for a successful birth and transitions afterwards
2 hour session: $100 (in office)
After the birth of your baby you will contact your doula to let her know your baby has arrived. From this point forward (until your baby is 6 weeks old) your doula will be available to answer questions, provide virtual breastfeeding support, offer suggestions and referrals, etc via FaceTime, phone, email, or text (please be aware that at times when contacting your doula via email or text she may need to call you to get more information or further details and clarification in order to answer your question). In the event total time needed is over 20 hours additional time will be billed at $15 per hour.
When scheduling your appointment please note that we will do the best we can with accommodating your requested day/time. If we are unable to exactly match that day/time we will contact you to discuss alternative meeting times.
