Nashville Postpartum Doulas
Looking for a little guidance or extra help after baby is born? Hire a postpartum doula. She can help you with new mom tips and tricks, plus hold baby so you can rest of take a shower. Need help with other kids or overnight care? She can do that too. She fills in where family can't.
You’ve just been discharged from the hospital or returned home from the birth center, and now it’s just you and this tiny new human. Your whole family is in a state of transition: the new mother is healing, recovering, and dealing with all the physical and emotional changes of recently having given birth. Both parents are learning how to care for a new baby, how to function on less or sometimes even little sleep, and really getting to know their new baby. The baby is trying to make sense of the change from a warm, dark environment where he or she could always hear mother’s heartbeat to a birth, loud world where baby and mother are two separate people. You might feel lost in a fog and uncertain how to make all theses transitions. Perhaps you have questions about newborn care, breast or bottle feeding, infant sleep, or baby wearing. Maybe you just really need a couple nights of good sleep. If any of these things apply to you, you need a postpartum doula!
A postpartum doula is a highly trained professional in the areas of postpartum recovery, support, and infant care. She has a wide range of training and experience, as well as a caring, compassionate heart and a desire to help ease this transitional period for you and your family. She will walk alongside you as your new family settles in. She can help you with everything from breast or bottle feeding, infant sleep questions, and baby wearing while providing nurturing and support to the newly postpartum mother to overnight baby care and sleep education so that you can get a good night’s sleep. She’s not a fairy godmother, but pretty close!
In addition to postpartum doula services, we also offer trained Newborn Care Specialist (NCS) Services, meaning we have additional, specialized training and experience in caring for newborns (birth- 3 months of age). We’ll be there every step of the way to help you learn how to care for your new baby and answer all your questions. We’ll also be there for overnight NCS services to help establish healthy sleep routines that will maximize everyone’s rest and lead to healthy sleep patterns through the baby and toddler years.

Most parents purchase about 40 hours of postpartum support and use it in the first 2 weeks. The first week they might want night care and the next week might have mainly day care mixed with one overnight.
5. What if I purchase hours and don't want to use them until after family leaves? Is that ok?
We give you the flexibility to choose the hours and when you want them to be used. You might want support the first week and then only have support for a day or so the next few weeks. Some parents choose to not have us come until all the family has finished visiting or they just have us come in during the night so that mom can sleep.
6. What does a postpartum doula do?
Her first priority is mom and baby. She answers mom's questions and helps her get adjusted to a new routine. If she has free time she becomes a mom helper. She can pick up groceries, do meal prep, load the dishwasher, do the laundry, feed kids, hold baby, do light housekeeping work, help with breastfeeding, bottle cleaning, etc. She helps to keep the house running smoothly while mom recovers.

Yes, we can cater that to you as needed. This care if different from our normal postpartum care because we are charting temperature of mom and baby, watching for bleeding, and helping with after birth care. Many home birth midwives suggest that you hire a doula for care right after birth and our experienced doulas can do that for you. This allows you and your partner to rest after a birth as our experienced hands care for mom and baby to make a better recovery. This care is also good for a mom who has just gotten home from the hospital and wants more support.
