The postpartum period is often defined as the 6 weeks following the birth, or the amount of time it takes for a person’s body to return to its pre-pregnant state. However, the period of adjustment after is unique to each birth and encompasses much more than physical change.
Postpartum Doula Support sessions are designed to ease the transition into family home life and integration as a new family unit. I can help with self-care, postpartum recovery, postpartum comfort measures, infant care, parenting information, and support with learning to feed and take care of your baby.

 

Testimonials

Positive Experiences

 

I cannot recommend Lydia enough as both a doula and a massage therapist. Not only did she support with a lot of information and planning before my birth (including a very succinct and organized birth plan) but she was also unshakably there for me as I needed during a 52-hour labor with two surgeries directly following the birth. She was a support not only to me but to my husband during an incredibly scary and stressful time (especially in the midst of COVID). I did not expect her to still be there when I came back from surgery but she had remained there with my baby boy and husband and had helped secure donated breast milk for my baby boy while I was in the OR.
She has an amazing ability to know what a person needs to hear or feel during the birthing process. Her ability to massage and touch during the birth process allowed me to remain without an epidural for a large portion of my induction. She provides a comforting and calm presence that as a highly anxious person I desperately needed. She also had a steady and positive way of not letting me give up so that I could reach my birth goal. During the pushing phase of my labor, hers was the only voice I wanted to hear.
Lydia is a super kind, respectful, helpful, and nurturing doula and person and I think anyone would be very lucky to have her. She also loves children and makes an excellent post partum doula. I would hire her again for any other births I may have in the future
