DanielleBeginner Postpartum Doula and CLC
$50/hr Min. Booking for 18hrs
Danielle is a certified full spectrum doula and lactation counselor offering postpartum support during the day time. Her approach to postpartum care focuses on rhythm. What on earth does that mean?! Finding a rhythm postpartum means finding sustainable patterns of care that families gradually settle into after the baby’s birth. Postpartum support is fluid and looks different each visit. Danielle will adapt her support to address your specific needs that day. Visits could include nonjudgmental active listening as you process your birth experience; reinforcing your confidence with hands-on education for feeding and newborn care; holding your baby while you take time for much needed self-care or nap; leaving your home tidy by helping with household tasks like laundry and dishes.
Danielle brings a calm presence and evidence based techniques to help you recover from the hard work of labor and birth. She’ll accompany you as you find the right groove for your family to stay rested, nourished, and soothed.
“Danielle is amazing! She was my husband’s and my postpartum doula for our first child. I was new to the idea of doulas and was not quite sure what it would entail, but Danielle far exceeded our expectations and now I think all new parents should seek out postpartum doula services. It was always a relief when it was one of her days to come over since she was great at helping feed and sooth our baby, show us essential baby care techniques, help my body heal from childbirth and aches from nursing, and also help tidy up baby things in our apartment – all in 3 hours a few times a week. She was also very fun to chat with at a time where it is hard to get out of the house to meet with friends! Danielle was easily trustworthy so we had her do an overnight visit early on. We were able to actually sleep through the whole night and did not hear cries from our baby since Danielle was very alert and engaged in caring for him. I highly recommend having Danielle be your postpartum doula! We miss her already, yet are now much more confident as new parents in caring for our son.”
