ElyseSeasoned Postpartum Doula, Newborn Care Specialist, CLC
$50/hr Min. Booking for 18hrs
Elyse helps parents tap into their own instincts during the transitional period that is the fourth trimester. She feels strongly that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to infant care. Postpartum support looks different to every family; some families might need extra help with infant feeding; others might need meal support; sometimes people want an extra pair of hands to hold their baby while they nap. Elyse takes care to meet families where they are to provide non-judgmental, evidence-based care.
Elyse is also a Certified Lactation Support Counselor and has a shame-free approach to helping clients achieve their feeding goals. Her goal is to leave each postpartum visit with you a little bit more confident and rested than when she arrived.
When she’s not doula-ing, Elyse loves spending time outside in nature, birding, karaoke, and looking for mushrooms. Her favorite bird is a belted kingfisher.
“Elyse was instrumental in making me feel both more informed and less apprehensive about the labor, delivery, and postpartum phases of my pregnancy. She addressed my concerns and made me feel reassured and well educated about what to expect, and what could happen. She was incredibly supportive during my time in the hospital, offering tools and resources to ease labor and to prepare me for delivery. She also provided excellent reading materials to address questions I had, and referrals for my aftercare.” – Elizabeth
