Bringing home a new baby is one of life’s most thrilling events. It’s also a big change that can prove challenging whether you’re bringing home your first baby or your sixth. I am honored to support mothers and families through my work as a maternity photographer and holistic esthetician in the Rochester/Ithaca area. And I am so excited to expand my services as a postpartum doula!
What is a Postpartum Doula
A postpartum doula’s role is to mother the mother. As an Ithaca doula, I’ll be able to provide you with:
This includes things like meal planning, cooking, housekeeping, and tending to siblings, so you can focus on caring for your precious infant and recovering from the birth. Figuring out a new routine takes time. A postpartum doula can help you and the rest of your family with the transition.
The postpartum experience is different for everyone, and it’s very common to experience postpartum depression, overwhelm, or just emotional ups and downs as you adjust to having a new baby. As a postpartum doula, I can be there for you. I’m happy to take care of baby’s needs when you need a break, give you some pampering, and help you feel supported.
Guidance and Education
Having a new baby is a learning curve—even if you’re an experienced parent. If you need help with breastfeeding, soothing techniques, or other aspects of infant care, a doula can offer support and guidance. There are so many resources to help new mothers. As your doula, I can connect you with whatever resources and education you need to support you in your role as a parent.
