Postnatal Doula Support

The postnatal doula cares for the mother and her family, in their home, in the first few weeks following the birth. The postnatal doula provides non-medical support and companionship, assists with newborn care, sibling adjustment, meal preparation and household organization.  Additionally, the postnatal doula offers evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from childbirth, and other issues related to the postnatal period.  If needed, she will provide referrals to other professionals in order to facilitate a smooth transition period.

  • minimum = 3 hours – 1 hr prenatal consultation + 2 hr postnatal in home support
  • additional hours available as per individual need

The Service Fee = $30.00/hour

If you would like to arrange a consultation with one of our postnatal doulas, or to schedule postnatal care, you can contact our team directly at: Postnatal@foundationsbirthservices.ca

 

Lactation Consultation Support

While breastfeeding is the most normal way to feed a newborn, it is new for both baby and parent!  This can present a steep learning curve, even when everything is normal.

Our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants are available to come to your home to support you in finding the best way forward in your breastfeeding journey.  They will arrange a time with you that works to come and do an assessment, give you tips and information, then follow up with a phone call to be sure you don’t have any further questions.

The Service Fee = $100.00 per visit

To connect with either Cindy or Annaka (see their bios here), you can email them directly at: Breastfeeding@foundationsbirthservices.ca
