The Postpartum period is often referred to as “The Fourth Trimester” and rightfully so! Whether you are a first time parent, or a seasoned parent, bringing a new baby into the world is not an easy task. We are trained to offer daytime and nighttime Postpartum Doula support to the Triad, Charlotte, Statesville and Triangle areas of North Carolina.
WHAT IS A POSTPARTUM DOULA?
A postpartum doula brings her experience, education, and support to parents and their newborns while providing non-judgmental and unbiased support. The doula's primary focus is on the mother's recovery after birth, dad's confidence in his role, and the baby's transition to life on the outside.
Imagine you have just arrived home with your new little one. There is laundry to be done, dishes to be washed, groceries to be bought, but your baby needs you to tend to their needs. Maybe your partner has returned to work and your family from out of town has left. Whatever the situation may be, we will be there to help make the transition to life with a newborn easier for you and your family.
WHAT ARE YOUR SPECIALTIES?
At La Bella Birth and Baby, our doulas are well trained in breast and bottle feeding, sleep guidance, emotional and physical recovery after birth, infant soothing, breast/bottle feeding and more. We are happy to assist with light housekeeping, running errands, meal preparation and planning, and the general needs of the family during the postpartum period and beyond. Our range of knowledge extends to cloth diapering, babywearing, baby-led weaning, home organization, newborn care, SNS (supplemental nursing systems), car seat safety, and so much more!
WHAT HAPPENS AT AN OVERNIGHT SHIFT?
During an overnight postpartum shift, we will handle all things baby so that you can get a restful night's sleep. We will tend to your baby's sleep schedule however you see fit- whether that be rocking baby to sleep, implementing gentle sleep training, or transitioning baby from co-sleeping/bassinet to crib. You deserve a full night of sleep so that you can take care of you and your family! Please contact us for more information about overnight care and package options.
DO YOU OFFER SLEEP TRAINING?
Yes! We take a gentle, and unique approach to sleep training and tailor our methods based on YOUR philosophy. Babies need sleep - but parents do too! On the first night, we will come and assess your situation, get to know you and your infant sleep preferences, and help you come up with a plan that will help you reach your sleep goals. We closely follow the American Academy of Pediatrics Safe Sleep Recommendations and are happy to help educate new parents on this as well.
Inquire about our discounted package options! We are also very flexible with payment plans and provide insurance reimbursement forms as well.
"I could NOT have survived postpartum without Chelsea by my side. We hired her to help support us in the hospital after we gave birth to our baby girl. She was so helpful with breastfeeding by showing me different positions, helping me with latching, and proper posture so my back wasn't killing me. Then when we got discharged, she worked with us for several weeks providing overnight support in our home.
Over the course of a couple of months, she was able to help us establish a healthy routine for our baby and optimized our sleep at night. She answered so many questions that I didn't think I would have as a third time mom! The older siblings loved her as well and she really became a part of the family. We love Chelsea and will definitely hire her if we ever add another member to our family!"
