Training and Accomplishments
A Postpartum Doula will focus on your recovery giving birth and on your new baby’s adjustment to living outside of your body. She will support you while teaching you to care for your baby; bathing, shampooing, feeding, diapering (disposable and cloth), sleeping, baby wearing, nail trimming, nursery organizing, etc., as well as light housekeeping, meal and snack preparation, and help you with your newborn on outings. We can recognize the early signs and symptoms of postpartum mood disorders and postpartum depression.
Your Postpartum Doula can also help troubleshoot potential breastfeeding struggles and encourage your choices as you and your baby learn this together, including helping you with proper latch and positioning. This process is new for both you and baby, and can be frustrating, but your Doula will be there to help you make this transition as peacefully and smoothly as possible.
Infant massage can help ease your baby’s transition into this new life by promoting bonding, stimulating circulation, easing colic, gas, and digestive discomfort, improving sleeping patterns, and stimulating brain development. This will help to relax both you and your baby.
Happiest Baby On The Block
Happiest Baby on the Block is an educational program that is designed to help you learn how to best care for your baby by soothing your baby’s crying and boost sleep for you and your baby.
Jamie is currently working as an independent contractor with Tree of Life.
