Customized Prenatal Preparation
Having trouble finding a newborn prep or infant feeding class that covers exactly what you are looking for? We can create a customized planning session in the comfort of your own home - either in person or via Zoom. Topics could include breastfeeding, newborn care, parent self-care, nutrition, building your support network, and more as requested. We’ll work with you to help you feel confident and prepared to welcome your little one into your home
The fee is $175 for a 2-hour session.
Virtual Doula Visits
Meet with a postpartum doula via Zoom to ask questions and receive guidance as you need it. Virtual consultations are great for families needing just a little guidance before or after the baby arrives, as an add-on for families utilizing in-home doula care, or for those who are outside of our usual service area.
The fee is $45 for a 30-40 minute video call with a follow-up email.
In-Home Postpartum Doula Care
Working with a postpartum doula in your home gives you access to a wide range of services and support. She will care for you in the way that you most at that moment. A doula's work will evolve with the needs of the family. Additionally, the doula "mothers the new mother" at a time when the focus is usually on the baby.
Trained, compassionate care may include:
— Assistance with physical recovery after birth
— Exploring and processing the emotional changes of a new parent
— Education about newborn care such as swaddling, bathing, and soothing
— Infant feeding support including breast and bottle feeding, pumping, and more
— Nutritional information, meal preparation, and planning
— Help around the house and sibling care
Currently, Amanda is available to work with families who need one to six visits. This is perfect for families who want some extra support, guidance, education, and reassurance. If you need longer-term support, we can refer you to trusted colleagues.
The fee is $40-$50/hour and is scheduled for a minimum of 3-hour blocks.

— The Return Plan, a on-line course for expectant parents to help them plan for leave, build strong foundations, prepare for returning to work.
