I am very honored to be able to say 100% of the families I have served postpartum requested to extend their contracts with me!
Ali was very kind, caring and thoughtful. She is a great listener and pays attention so that she can care for the family to the best of her knowledge. She asks questions and is happy to adjust the plan based on our changing needs. She is a good communicator. She is always on time! She is so quiet! Never once did she wake us up with nighttime activities. She made good suggestions but also was very open and willing to follow my lead when I wanted things a certain way.Alex (overnight postpartum support)
Are you curious about what postpartum doula care looks like?
All births and postpartum experiences are unique to each family — your service will be tailored to compliment the environment you are creating for your family through these periods. I am available to serve N.E.A.R. families to support them through postpartum: to Nurture, to Educate, to Assess and to Refer. This is a cute acronym I picked up from my doula trainer– I can’t take the credit 🙂
During your postpartum period, my first priority is helping your rhythms come and go smoothly, whether it be by providing an ear to listen about how your new way of life is developing, caring for your baby as you shower, tackling the laundry as you two rest together, or helping to prepare meals. Please note that a referral to a cleaning maid/housekeeper will be made for heavy cleaning tasks.
Services available include introductory education on your design as a mother (you are made to do this!), newborn care and development including their cues, babywearing, flat cloth diapering and establishing sustainable routines in your growing household.
In my time with families, I am trained and able to make on-going non-medical assessments of lactation and feeding, hydration/hunger satiation for mom, and periodic screening for postpartum mood disorders and general health of the family.
In the event that a medical assessment may be necessary, or you are hoping to find a great mommy-and-me group, I am able to make referrals to appropriate local professionals and groups. Also available for parents who have niche product interests: organic fibers, microbiome-friendly cleansers– I am also able to make referrals for where to find baby care products according to the family’s preferences.
A la carte daytime contracts are exclusive to San Francisco and typically cost $45/hour. A 24-hour minimum contract ($1,080) is required for postpartum service contracted a la carte. Work shifts tend to be 4-6 hours; additional costs may be added for specialty meals, and care of multiples or siblings.
Overnight support is available in San Francisco and Marin Counties with my hourly rate working out to be $60. A la carte overnight care is available only in addition to an Overnight Recharge package (ie, three 8 hour nights per week with four week’s duration minimum contract). Alternatively, multiple Overnight Recharge packages may be reserved for the same family.
Discovery Calls (15-minutes) are free when you’re reaching out to me about services.
