doula work

for several years now, i have been led to work with new moms in the season of bringing a new baby home.  with having 9 children myself, i know personally the challenges that a new member of the family brings.

the word ‘doula’ means ‘a woman who serves’.  my heart is to serve a new mama and her family in any way i can.  from laundry to grocery shopping, to meal preparation to holding baby to just being a listening ear or a word of encouragement to a family in need.

The support and knowledge that i bring to a family will help in several ways.

  • it will give new parents the ability to relax and rest, knowing capable hands are there to assist.
  • it gives first time parents the confidence and support by encouragement and instruction where needed
  • it allows the new mama time to take care of the new baby and herself while her other household duties and children are being cared for
  • it offers the new mom the outside connection she may need to keep from the isolation that many feel during this time

Things i specifically do while on the job as a doula

  • Feed baby, as needed
  • Comfort restless or upset baby
  • Hygienic care (diapering, bathing, etc.),
  • Light housework (nursery cleaning, children’s laundry, food prep, picking up kitchen, etc.)
  • Sibling care
  • Light cooking
  • grocery shopping/errand running
  • Emotional support
  • Breastfeeding and bottle feeding support and tips
  • Baby care instruction, assistance and encouragement

as a photographer, you will also have the option of having me bring my equipment and take family photos–one of my most favorite of duties 😉
