Birth & Postpartum Doula Support

Birth Doula Support

As your doula, I will support you and your partner on your journey through childbirth and the immediate postpartum time. It is my goal to empower families to make informed decisions and feel supported throughout the birth. 

Birth Doula Services Include:

  • 2 prenatal sessions. We will use these meetings to determine  your birth preferences and explore the physical, emotional, and spiritual preparations for birth.

  • 24/7 on-call period from 37 weeks until birth

  • Labor and birth support at home and/or at place of birth. Initial breastfeeding support following birth.

  • One postpartum session within 5 days of birth.

  • Email and phone support for the first 8 weeks postpartum for questions, resource referrals, general support.


Recent changes: As I transition into my life as a nursing student, I am currently not accepting birth doula clients. I am happy to provide referrals to recommended doulas in the NYC area. 

Postpartum Doula Support

The first months with a new baby welcomes many new emotions, challenges, joys, and questions. Doula support in the early postpartum time can look very different, depending on the needs of your family. 


Postpartum Services May Include:

  • Breastfeeding/pumping guidance

  • Pace-bottle feeding

  • Newborn care

  • Nursery organization

  • General household chores or errands.

  • Meal planning and prepping informed by my background of nutrition and cooking

Postpartum rate: $30 per hour, 20-hour minimum. 

I believe everyone should have doula support. I offer sliding scale payment should services be cost prohibitive.
