Postpartum Doula

As a postpartum doula I will come into your home and "mother" you and your family through the transitions of having a new baby.       


At Milwaukee Doulas I know that having a baby is a life changing event for everyone involved, and I want to be there to help you along your journey to ease the transitions. I can teach you newborn care, postpartum mom care, assist with breastfeeding, provide opportunities for you to rest or shower, or even just be that person who is there to lend a listening ear. 


I can help the rest of your family with the transitions as well by providing care for siblings, assistance with day to day activities, and much more.   


Services are individualized to you and your family's needs.   You may not now exactly what your needs are at this point or what they may be and that is okay.  I realize that life is forever changing, so duties and specific needs can be decided prior to my first visit or can be decided day by day as your needs change.      


Cost $30 / hr (a minimum of 4 hrs /visit and at least 12 hours contracted for)
