Transitioning To Motherhood Package
The "Transitioning to Motherhood Package" is our most popular postpartum support option. This is perfect for helping you in those early days as you are figuring out breastfeeding, newborn sleep schedules, and how to take care of yourself when you feel like all your time is spent taking care of your baby. The package includes:
- Four to six days of postpartum support in the first month after your baby is born
- The doula comes to your home for four hours for each visit
- The cost of this package is $400 for four days or $600 for six days (this means that the cost is $25 per hour rather than the regular $30 per hour) when paid prior to your birth
