Postpartum is Better with Sleep, Showers & Support!

You just had a baby and your life has changed in an instant! Sleepless nights, recovery after birth, learning how to care for your baby all while trying to figure out how to be a parent yourself. And did we mention the constant feedings, diapering and feeling of tired and overwhelm?!

We know how difficult these first days, weeks, and months can be. But we believe that with support, education and a third pair of helping hands, this transition to parenting can be a more positive experience for everyone!

Who Needs a Postpartum Doula?

The feeling of overwhelm is too much.

You feel you just can't even.

You just need some time for yourself and practice self care.

Everyone is obsessed with the baby and YOU need someone to see and listen to YOU.

You need someone to guide you or tell you that you are doing just fine.

Or when you just need some sleep. 

We are here to support YOU in your postpartum journey.

    "After a month of high anxiety, no sleep and pretty bad postpartum blues, we decided that we needed help. Enter our postpartum doula! She was receptive to our needs, what our routine was, what kind of extra help we needed. I called her my "safety net" and am so very thankful for her help transitioning us into our new way of life!”

    What Parents Are Saying About Our Postpartum Doulas

    "I have had the privilege of having using all the postpartum doulas from Baby Nest! The support and confidence they have given me towards taking care of myself and my little girl had been invaluable. They are very sweet and attentive and my daughter absolutely loves them." - Jen P. (Van, WA)

    "Our Baby Nest doula was incredibly professional, but also genuinely caring and warm. She understands that this is a tender situation for both mom and dad (as well as baby), and knows how to provide just the right amount of support." (Portland, Or)

    Vancouver Wa dad talking about postpartum doula help

    "Sherilee was a tremendous help as our Postpartum Doula!  The primary benefit was stress relief (and sleep)! She boosted our confidence and helped us navigate the challenges of a new child.

    Sherilee really helped us adjust to having a newborn and more importantly provided the support that my wife needed the most. My wife valued their conversations and her insights, compassion and information I could not provide.

    Her help around the house made me feel like I was getting ahead and when I was done working for the day I didn't have to put in more work around the house. I could relax and enjoy the time with my family and eat the fresh food that she prepped for us. Stop considering a Postpartum Doula  and sign up! Truly a tremendous help! "

    - Alan, first time dad (Vancouver, WA)

    "Our Baby Nest postpartum doula was incredible. She's incredibly compassionate, responsible and helpful. My husband and I had twin boys two months. From the moment I had a consultation with her, my worries dissipated.

    She listened to everything we had to say. She was receptive to our needs, what our routine was, what kind of extra help we needed (cleaning bottles, making banana bread so I had breakfast, folding clothes etc.) and also doing research and giving us extra information on things we had questions about. I called her my "safety net" and was so sad when she had her last night with us but I'm so very thankful for her help transitioning us into our new way of life. She was absolutely wonderful with the boys and it's quite impressive how well she managed two babies at the same is not an easy feat!" - The Wiggins (Portland)
