Postpartum, Post-Adoption, Post-Surrogacy, & Antepartum Support

Caring for your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs does not end after the birth!  Wise parents know that transitioning to life at home with your new baby (or babies!) is a transition that the will require additional support.   At Tremendoulas, we will come up with a customized plan to nurture and ease you, your spouse/partner, any big siblings, other family members, and pets into your new roles.  Options include:

  • Answering basic postpartum questions
  • Demonstrating and providing guidance for basic newborn care — from the umbilical cord, to diapering (in cloth or in disposable), bathing, calming, and sleeping
  • Breastfeeding and bottle-feeding assistance
  • Processing the birth and postpartum experiences
  • Providing trustworthy, up-to-date resources for your situation
  • Guiding you as you learn to use a baby carrier — wrap, ring sling, soft structured carrier, and other styles
  • Setting up sitz baths and yoni steams (yoni steams are only available after lochia has ceased)
  • Teaching you to bind your belly to promote healing
  • Crafting menus and ingredient lists
  • Picking up provisions and running errands
  • Light household tasks, such as dishes, laundry, tidying, and meal preparations
  • Playing with siblings or caring for the newborn

The support of a postpartum doula is personalized for each mother or family, including:

  • mothers who are on bedrest during their pregnancies
  • parents of babies born by surrogacy 
  • adoptive parents.
