OUR EXPERT GUIDANCE
"Like many "modern" mamas I didn't have family nearby and my partner went back to work almost immediately after our son was born. I do not say this lightly: I don't know what I would have done without our postpartum doulas. There is no such thing as settling in privately and peacefully with a new baby. You need help! Postpartum hours will be my go-to gift for every new parent I know moving forward!- Megan

After our first overnight, I knew I had to extend our contract- I was addicted! Having our doula there overnight so I could rest, ask questions, and just know that I wasn't alone made all the difference. I only wish I had you with our first 2 babies!- Mom of three
What Does a Portland Postpartum Doula Do?
Here's how we help:
After baby arrives you can rely on us during those crucial first moments as a family.
Sleep (yours): Our doulas will take care of all the overnight diaper changes and soothing so you can get a good night of sleep. Nursing your baby? We'll bring your baby to you so all you have to do is snuggle and nurse.
Sleep (your baby's): We'll help you support your baby's natural sleep development from the beginning so you have a lifetime of healthy sleep habits. This is our specialty!
Confidence: We'll give you all the details (feeding, sleep, care of an infant, bathing - and any other questions you have) so you can feel confident in how to care for your baby, read their cues, and understand how they are developing.
Unconditional Support - We are the drama-free, opinion free support, unlike many family members. Let your family stay family, and we’ll handle your professional needs.
In-home help that even extends overnight so you can relax and get the rest you need.
We believe in supporting all families and all parenting plans. We happily work with every family and parenting scenario: multiples, LGBTQ+, surrogacy, over 40, and high risk, high profile. And, please let us know your pronouns when we speak.
"I had three nights a week support starting about four weeks after delivery and I wish I had started sooner. Everyone was great. . . they put me at ease right away. My baby went from only sleeping on me, to sleeping in her pack n play within a few weeks. The transition to sleeping in her crib was super easy after that. I cannot recommend them highly enough."- Meredith
