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 mom 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!

That’s where a Postpartum Doula comes in!

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 both Emily and Shanna as my postpartum doulas. 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.

    “Our Baby Nest postpartum doula was a great help in getting settled into life with newborn twins. She helped reinforce my mamma instincts and answered questions I had regarding breastfeeding and other newborn care topics. Her help didn’t end when her visit was over. She found mom groups for me to join and other resources to look into during her off hours. I am appreciative of the time she was able to spend with our family. “
    – Kiki

    “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.”
    -Scott

    “Upon the birth of our little boy we were in need and knew Emily would be the perfect person to help us through the challenges we were facing. Our son was born 3 weeks early and needed a little extra help to figure things out. Emily’s patience and knowledge was just what I needed.” – B.C

    “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 time…it is not an easy feat!” – The Wiggins
