Postpartum Support

The first few months after your baby is born can be both exciting and chaotic. But chaos does not have to ensue. Since 2014, Blissful Birthing’s professional postpartum doulas have helped bring a sense of calm to the homes of new families. Whether you are looking to gain confidence in caring for your baby or you want to catch up on sleep so you can be at your best for your baby, our doulas are here to help. We tailor our shifts to best meet the ever-changing needs of your family.

Daytime Support

Blissful Birthing’s postpartum doulas can help you gain confidence in caring for your newborn, teach you how to swaddle your baby like a pro, prepare a meal, provide guidance with babywearing, do the baby’s laundry, and watch your baby so you can spend time with your older children.

Daytime support also includes infant feeding support, if desired. Our doulas are well-versed in breastfeeding, pumping, and formula feeding, and can provide you with guidance and helpful suggestions.

4 hour shift ($200) or 5 hour shift ($250) between 9:00am and 4:00pm. Evening shifts between 4:00 and 8:00pm are available. 

Sibling care, if requested, is limited to one hour per shift.

Proper nutrition is essential for proper postpartum recovery. Your doula can prepare delicious, nutrient-dense meals for you and your family.

Overnight Support

Blissful Birthing’s postpartum doulas know how important sleep is to your recovery and overall well-being. Our only goal is to make sure that you, and your baby, get as much sleep as possible. A routine is essential to ensuring sleep success and your doula will work with you to establish an overnight routine, as well as provide you with guidelines for the daytime to help your baby reach your sleep goals sooner.

We understand that postpartum needs are different for every family, so we do not require you to purchase a minimum number of shifts. We have worked with families whose support needs have ranged from 2 nights while one parent is traveling for business to supporting families for over 6 months. Our Family Care Coordinator will work with your budget to set up a support schedule that works for your family’s needs.

Advanced booking is strongly suggested to guarantee availability and lock-in prices; most of the families Blissful Birthing works with book during their second trimester but you can book anytime through 4 weeks before delivery. Enjoy a restful night knowing your baby will be lovingly cared for.

Our doulas are experienced in providing support for families of multiples and preemies!

$450/night for one baby
$675/night for twins
Overnight shifts are from 9pm until 6am, only.

“Mornings following ‘Rebecca nights’ are smooth and happy and peaceful, indeed!”

Babies don’t always arrive on their due dates! So, Blissful Birthing guarantees coverage, but cannot guarantee the placement of a particular doula. If a family requests our Family Care Coordinator to work specific shifts, they will be billed at a rate of $60 per hour for daytime or overnights with one baby, and $85 per hour for overnights with twins.

Blissful Birthing has a reputation for providing exceptional postpartum support to families. While we do our best to accommodate all scheduling requests, most families invest in postpartum support months in advance. Booking requests with fewer than 4 weeks until delivery are accepted based on availability and will incur a last minute booking fee.

A 4% processing fee will be assessed to invoices paid via FSA, HSA, credit, or debit cards.
