You have delivered your sweet babe, but your journey is only beginning. We refer to this time of recovery and adapting to life with your new family member as the fourth trimester.
Flourish Birth Services offers Postpartum Doula care to families who wish to have an extra hand to help ease the transition. Your postpartum doula will come to your home at your convenience to assist with sibling care, simple meal preparation, light housework, and newborn care so that mom can get the rest she needs and so that the family can focus on bonding with their bundle of joy. Your postpartum doula is not only able to help with the managing of household tasks, but she is also trained in helping you establish a healthy breastfeeding relationship as she helps solve minor problems. She is also trained to watch out for signs of postpartum depression and anxiety and to facilitate getting the help you need if any of those issues arise. Need some sleep? Our postpartum doulas can also come for an overnight shift just to care for baby so you can get the rest your body needs.
"In my world as a doula, my focus is on the mother. I want to help her to feel comfortable, nourished, relaxed and appreciated; to facilitate a harmonious transition for both mother and child in those most profound first days and weeks after birth."
