postpartum doula support

Gina Eiford PCD

I passionately believe in honoring families during this sacred time in their lives.I hope to help create a lovebubble of support and compassion, while helping to facilitate the time needed to gain strength, confidence and prowess as parents. As your postpartum doula, I will work closely with each birthing person, partner and family to create their own unique lovebubble of support.

 

Postpartum Doula Support

I will be a supportive advisor, a non-judgmental listener and, a helper throughout your postpartum care. I will be available immediately following the birth of your child, if desired. 

I will provide emotional and physical hands on support in newborn care, allowing for plenty of rest and bonding time with baby.

I will offer evidence based information on infant care, feeding (breastfeeding and bottle), sleep patterns and soothing. I will offer referrals for any needs outside the doula scoop of practice.

I will offer guidance in family adjustment and coping skills for new parents and siblings.

I will help with the care of older SIBLINGS AND PETS.

I will do light HOUSEWORK, laundry and meal preparation, as needed.
