My Postpartum Doula 

In home support for families after childbirth  

serving the greater Sacramento area


Postpartum doulas provide emotional, informational, and practical support 

Enjoy more rest and less stress with in-home doula care. Postpartum doulas are trained to support families during the early weeks after childbirth. Practical help, emotional support, and education are the heart of these services. The doula performs practical household tasks including light housework, errands, preparing nourishing meals, and baby's laundry. The doula is an active listener,  helps with soothing techniques, and breast and/or bottle feeding support. She explains normal newborn development, and what mom can expect physically and emotionally as she recovers from birth. The doula helps parents, siblings, grandparents, and even pets adjust in their new roles. When appropriate, the doula refers the client to a healthcare provider and/or shares community resource information. With postpartum doula support, family members can focus more on bonding with each other and experience a smoother transition during this sensitive and special time of life.
