Postpartum and Infant Care Doula Services
We know you're great parents! And great parents deserve fantastic support.
You work hard to offer, be and do the very best for your baby.
It's a sign of greatness that you realize extra support caring for yourself, your family and your newborn can set you up for an easier, more joyful postpartum experience.
Every family experiences transition with a newborn differently. Your postpartum doula will customize your service to meet to your specific needs.
Here are a few ways a postpartum doula can support you:
Welcome Home Doula: Your doula will meet you at home when you first come home from the hospital. You'll get great support from day 1, putting systems into place with helpful encouragement to restore the equilibrium of your home and maximize the rest and nourishment you need.
Overnight Infant Care Doula: Get a great night's sleep while your doula takes over baby duty (breastfeeding moms, your doula can even bring the baby to you at night!)
Daytime Doula: Have an extra hand with older siblings, breastfeeding support and education, meals, light household tasks, squeezing in a nap and shower on the same day, and guidance on creating easy routines.
Dinner Doula: Your doula can make meals for your family, clean up after dinner, and help get everyone clean and ready for bed. You can schedule a shift that covers dinner, bath and bedtime!
Theme Park Doula: Have fun at the theme parks with an experienced doula to help you navigate the crowds, feedings, naptimes, and more with your infant! You can take your family picture at the front of the park, and still enjoy a sit down meal with your partner, ride a crazy coaster, or time with older sibling(s) knowing your baby is close by and cared for. This service is available at all Central Florida theme park locations, including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, and LegoLand.
Newborn Care Specialist: You know you're in good hands with someone who understands the ins and outs of new babies. From diaper changes, bathing the new baby to calming techniques, you'll learn how to best comfort and care for your baby.
Adaptable Philosophies: Sleep shaping, scheduled parenting and attachment parenting are all parenting philosophies your doula will understand and support. You decide what works best for your family; your doula helps implement your decisions.
Your doula can talk with you about your birth experience and how you're feeling today. Your doula is a listening ear, supportive of you, and educated on common newborn care as well as postpartum recovery.
Brevard Doulas will provide practical systems and enthusiastic encouragement so that you can focus on bonding with your baby and enjoy freedom to create new family rhythms and routines.
No matter what you choose, you're in great hands with complete support.
With a postpartum doula, you will feel confident, more rested, and better able to care for your baby!
