POSTPARTUM DOULA SUPPORT

We specialize in Postpartum Doula Support because we fear it is far often overlooked. By offering Postpartum Doula Support, our goal is to reduce your stress, allowing you to pay attention to your body and your baby. Have other older siblings? We love helping the whole family transition during the fourth trimester!

Postpartum doula shifts are typically 3-12 hours long, and during the day Monday-Friday (see below for night support). We come to your home and offer support, nurturing and compassion for the whole family. We can assist with the many aspects of the first trimester with your new baby. Like feeding baby, breastfeeding and pumping, bathing, household organization, household chores, meal prep, and the list goes on. 

Postpartum Doula Rates start at $36/day per hour

PAYING FOR SERVICES

Every newborn caretaker who wishes to have a doula shall have one

Babies are expensive! It seems like one cost after another. Doulas are well worth the investment: Increased self esteem, lowered stress levels, someone to help with every day tasks that ARE daunting when you have a new baby. When a doula is involved, studies have shown vast benefits, including but not limited to, a smoother and more enjoyable labor and birth experience, and by 6 weeks postpartum, lower levels of depression.

Doulas are a covered expense using Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and/or Health Savings Accounts (HSA).


If you wish to pay for doula services using your FSA and/or HSA, you will need to get a letter from your doctor stating you need doula care for medically necessary reasons, in this case the treatment of the medical condition - pregnancy and childbirth. Bare with us here, just navigating the red tape!

You can also get reimbursed for doula services from your HSA and/or FSA account. First we'll invoice and you'll pay for our services. You'll then need to fill out a Letter of Medical Necessity form through your HSA/FSA portal - or you can search online for a template - your medical provider will need to sign the form confirming you have the medical condition of pregnancy. Lastly, file your doula invoice and Letter of Medical Necessity form through your HSA/FSA and get reimbursed!

It's a bit cumbersome, but totally worth the effort to take advantage of your HSA and/or FSA in this capacity. Feel free to reach out if you have questions, as we're happy to help you through the steps. 

Another option is having a doula fund that your baby shower attendees, coworkers, friends and/or family can contribute to. Doula crowd funding! We are are here for it! Gift certificates are also available.
