Postpartum Pamper Session
What will I doula for you?
One hour massage in your home
Sacred restoration bath is prepared after mom's massage (this can be substituted with a special shower bomb)
Dinner is prepared afterward while mom relaxes in her bath or takes a nap.
Limited childcare and housekeeping occur to allow mom to relax after her massage.
*Dinner options include a fresh roasted chicken, seasonal vegetables, and rice or a spaghetti dinner with fresh salad. All ingredients will be the highest quality and organic when possible.
Both gluten free and vegan/vegetarian options are available on request. If you have other food sensitivities/allergies substitutions can be made.
Mom will feel nurtured and restored after this visit.
Other common Inquiries
* Siblings? No problem. Childcare is extended to include one sibling.
*If there is more than 1 sibling in the household a short phone interview is required previous to booking. There will be an extra charge for children under 10 (beyond the newborn + one siblings).
*No children outside the immediate family will be supervised without prior approval.
*The mother is expected to stay home and relax during the duration of the session. Extenuating circumstances are considered. If there is a special circumstance you are aware of just let me know and we can discuss it prior.
* Light Housekeeping includes: some dishes, a little laundry, putting toys away and general tidying up.
*If a chore requires special cleaning equipment (vacuum cleaner, mop, bucket) assume it is out of your doula's scope of practice. Oh - and no heavy lifting. Happy to do what needs to be done in a pinch but if you need a housekeeper I can give you a referral.
*The primary focus is on the mother, enabling her to relax and an opportunity to connect with her baby or restore her energy. While I am there I am happy to provide guidance, advice and resources.
