Postpartum Doula

A postpartum doula provides evidenced based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care.

Research shows that moms, dads and babies have an easier time with this transition if a good support team is in place.

Once baby arrives,  I come to your home with the intention of creating an impeccable transition for the family.

My services include:

  • Keeping your home tidy with light cleaning
  • I will cook light, nourishing meals for you
  • Breastfeeding guidance for you and baby
  • Teaching you baby care skills
  • Caring for baby during day and/or night shifts
  • Helping you heal your postpartum body holistically
  • Access to my online member only portal full of birth resources

It will be my deepest honor to hold sacred space for you and your family during this special time. 

I would love to offer you a complimentary appointment to explore your postpartum plan.

"Donette was with me throughout the toughest yet most empowering, time in my life.  She has become an amazing mentor and friend for life. My birth experience pre and post natal were made amazing because of Mama D.  Now years later I am still in awe of what an inspiring, powerful, loving woman she is. I can't explain how grateful I am for not only her belief in me, but her love and friendship.
