Gentle Support

Your Postpartum Doula/NCS is a trained and experienced professional who provides guidance, hands-on care, advice, and day or night support for parents and newborns. She'll help you calmly transition into your new lifestyle by making it as smooth and enjoyable as possible, during what could be the most overwhelming period of new parenthood. She'll create a safe space for you and your partner to rest and recover, and educate you - giving you the confidence you need once you Doula or NCS leaves.
Your Doula or NCS's main priority is caring for your new addition(s) and ensuring that both mother and baby are healthy and their needs are met. All of our doulas are trained, have a clean background check, hold current Infant CPR & 1st Aid through the (American Heart Association) and are also professionally insured.

  • Your doula gives crucial advice on establishing routines, feeding/nursing, sleeping, clothing, bathing and physically performs all of these tasks as required.

  • If mother is nursing, your doula will observe, guide and encourage as necessary. Your doula can assist with latching techniques and offer suggestions if there is difficulty.

  • If mother is pumping or the baby is bottle-fed, your doula will ensure that all feeding equipment is clean, sterilized and prepared for use, day or night. Your doula can help organize your milk storage and is responsible for feeding the baby and for helping parents establish the best feeding routines.

  • Your doula will diaper the baby before or after feeds, and as required, to permit mother time for rest.

  • ​Your doula will support mothers that have been ill following delivery including, identifying and supporting mothers with "Baby Blues" or postpartum depression. She can also assist with preparing nourishing meals.

  • Your doula will support healing with preparing foods for the womb, providing belly binding, hydrotherapy treatments, drawing baths, and creating an environment that supports recovery.

  • Your doula will maintain the organization of clothing, supplies and the tidying of the nursery.

  • Your doula follows cues and provides respite for the family when required, including providing 100% overnight care.

  • Your doula will bring water and snacks to mother when nursing or if unable to support her own care.

  • Your doula will go above and beyond, taking over household tasks like light cleaning, infant laundry and meal prep, to ensure mom rests, heals quickly, and feels confident in motherhood.
