Professional Postpartum Planning

I thought "Postpartum" meant depression!

The period of time after birth (referred to as "postpartum") is often completely forgotten. With all families need to prepare for labor, birth and baby, what happens after baby comes home takes a back burner! We noticed with our families that postpartum support and planning was needed so we developed our Postpartum Planning Sessions. Each session covers:

Your Postpartum Support Team
Normal Postpartum recovery
Meal Planning
Delegating Tasks
Nursery Organization Tips
and More...

PLEASE NOTE THAT A POSTPARTUM PLANNING SESSION IS INCLUDED IN ALL POSTPARTUM DOULA PACKAGES.


Postpartum Planning Sessions run 2 hours and cost $75. These sessions take place in the comfort of your own home!

Spaces per month are limited and sessions are subject to availability.
