Here at Mindful Mama Care, Natalie offers birth and postpartum doula services.
It's probably crossed your mine. What does doula mean? The word doula originates from Greece and translates into the meaning: a woman who serves.
As a postpartum doula my time is spent differently than a nanny or baby nurse. I offer informed support, hands on care, and community resources for my clientele. I am focused on the needs for mother and baby to thrive harmoniously in the family circle. Which includes my attention toward physical and mental adjustments occurring in all members of the family.
Mothering the mother is a term used to describe the work I do. My hopes are for women and families to make confident decisions that best support their art of parenting.
I do not:
Diagnose medical conditions
Perform clinical tasks
Take over the care of a newborn
Heavy house cleaning tasks
Additional info: I have a minimum of 5 day time hours and 8 night time hours.
