As a certified postpartum doula through DONA, I specialize in working overnights in Chicago and surrounding suburbs.Postpartum doulas offer a wide variety of services that varies with each family based on their needs.
I offer non-medical support, provide education and address concerns to families in the Chicago area. This allows the family to relax and enjoy their baby. The schedule is flexible and varies with each family. For families with one baby, the time spent with the new family is usually one to two weeks. For multiples, it is usually three to four months.
As a postpartum doula, I assist with:
• Newborn care
• Physical and emotional support
• Provide education and resources
• Breastfeeding Support
• Light housekeeping
