Morning, Afternoon and Evening Shifts

"As your Postpartum Doula I care for you, your baby and the entire family!  I support your choices while guiding you to follow your parental instincts, and develop your parental intuition to help you gain confidence and trust in your ability to care for your newborn."  

"My husband and I were thrilled when we found out we were pregnant with our second child.  Then reality settled in as we already had our hands full with our first toddler. Thank goodness we found an amazing postpartum doula! Cindy was absolutely indispensable in helping us get through those crucial first few weeks. She went above and beyond anything we expected. She's incredibly professional, competent, and capable. More importantly, she was very kind, compassionate, and caring. She's a phenominal chef, and her foot rubs really help me to wind down each evening. We wholeheartedly recommend Cindy's postpartum doula service to all in need. You won't be disappointed".

Family Support

  • Tips for partners on ways to support the mother's recovery and breastfeeding efforts.

  • Sibling care and adjustment to the newborn.  Pet care and adjustment to the newborn.

  • I screen for any issues beyond my scope of practice, and provide resources and/or referrals when necessary.

 

Practical Help:

  • Laundry, dishes, general tidying up, errands, cleaning and sterilization of bottle and pump parts.

  • Preparation of nourishing homemade meals for the entire family (breakfast in bed for morning shifts when requested).

 

I especially love to cater to mothers and make them feel very well taken care of, listened to, pampered, and nourished to help them with their physical and emotional recovery and healing.

 

The postnatal period can be a difficult adjustment emotionally. I sit and listen to how you are feeling and hold space for you to process your emotions.  This includes a debriefing of your birthing experience.

"Cindy is Amazing!  During a time of great difficulty with my colic baby, Cindy literally and physically came to the rescue. I cannot say enough about how kind, generous, calming and experienced she was.  What a blessing she is to us.  I highly recommend Cindy to any family and would consider anyone who books her very lucky!"  Farnoush B
