Mainly available on weekends (various hours) and Mondays 9am-5pm

My services focus on your self-care recovery & postpartum comfort measures (including providing sacred you time periods for sleep, shower, eating, neighborhood walk, etc), Reiki if you desire, infant care (providing an assisting hand while standing by your side with infant bathing, safety issues, and swaddling), and will assist in finding resources/options in relation to parenting information as questions and concerns arise. Practical support will include making small & quick trips to the neighborhood store providing I have money in advance to pay for your groceries/items, preparing meals and snacks from the food you have (often from La Leche League International’s Feed Yourself, Feed Your Family if meets your dietary liking/needs), getting you frequent drinks, light housework, and answering the phone and door if desired. The tasks I provide each day will depend on the priorities discussed by all parties before beginning services and on your particular needs that day. My goal is to help you become confident and secure in your own abilities as a new parent(s) and family.

Fees: $15 dollars per hour with a 3-4 hour shift per visit requirement
