As a certified Postpartum & Infant Care Doula, you can be assured that in addition to timeless photography of your newborn, Rebecca is sensitive to your needs as a new parent. Rather than rush through a portrait session, hoping that baby is sleepy and ready for photos, Rebecca cares for your needs and baby's needs as a priority.
What can you expect from a Postpartum & Infant Care Doula?
Every family is different, but here are some of the advantages to hiring a Postpartum & Infant Care Doula:
An opportunity to rest while baby is safe in the care of a certified doula.
Non-judgmental support and encouragement from a highly experienced mother and caregiver. As a foster parent, Rebecca has cared for multiple special needs newborns. As a biological mother, Rebecca understands the recovery period and emotional support that new mothers need.
Organizational support ~ we all understand the "nesting period" during pregnancy, and once baby arrives things get a bit messy! While mama rests, Rebecca helps tidy the scattered baby items.
Time with your older children and pets that may need some of your full attention.
Newborn care support ~ if you're feeling a little intimidated giving baby's first bath, learning how to sterilize bottles, hold baby for breastfeeding, keeping track of feeding times and wet/soiled diapers, or soothing a crying newborn, Rebecca can definitely help!
Extended doula services are offered, pending availability.
