Starting at $40/Hour CAD (Plus GST)

Minimum of 12 Hours

Postpartum Support

A minimum of 12 hours of in-person support (min. 3 hours per shift) over 6 weeks postpartum will be required to ensure I can provide the optimal postpartum support for you and your family.

Fee: $480 for 12 hours. 
Hourly*: $40/hour with a 3 hour minimum per visit. 
*Twins or multiples: $50/hour.

Includes a complimentary prenatal visit between 32-36 weeks gestation. 

Prior to baby’s arrival between 32-36 weeks gestation, I will visit you at home to discuss your home setup (eg. safe sleeping arrangements for baby and caregiver(s), perineal care setup for the birthing parent), meal preferences for small meals that I can prepare*, pet(s) and/or sibling adjustment support, basic newborn care, and resource sharing for additional postpartum support. 

*ingredients/groceries for small meals to be purchased on your own, or to be reimbursed.

Hours for in-person visits can be adjusted to what will work best for you and your family. The first postpartum visit is recommended to be within the 1-2 weeks of baby’s arrival. 

Examples of postpartum support may include: light housekeeping, snack/small meal preparation, childminding (while at least one caregiver is present in the home), breast/chestfeeding support, and emotional support. 

A sample postpartum support schedule may look like the following:
(Depending on hospital discharge plans: 24-36 hours for a vaginal birth; 48-72 hours for a cesarean birth): 

  • Week 1: 10am - 1pm (3 hours) 
  • Week 2: 12pm - 3pm (3 hours) 
  • Week 3: 5pm - 8pm (3 hours)
  • Week 4: 10am - 1pm (3 hours) 

Overnight shifts (maximum 8 hours per shift) may also be available upon request. Parking is expected to be provided by the client.

Can be combined with Birth Doula Support Package, but a total three (3) prenatals will be offered for the Birth and Postpartum Support Package. 
Additional add-on services are available. See here.

Booking Details

Payment Options

Payment for the initial 12-hours of postpartum support will be required to be paid in full in order to reserve availability. Additional support hours exceeding the initial 12-hour retainer will be charged on an hourly basis and invoiced on a semi-monthly schedule. Total fees will be subject to 5% GST.

Cancellation Policy

In respect of my other families that have requested my support, fees are final and deposits are non-refundable. I do not offer refunds unless I fail to provide services due to my own error and/or negligence. In the event that I am unable to attend to you due to suspected or confirmed illness, injury, family emergency, or other circumstances outside of my control or foresight, backup postpartum support will be offered or rescheduled.

Financial Restrictions

If you identify as a person of the global majority/BIPOC birthing person and/or may have financial restrictions, I’d love to learn more about your story, and discuss a pay-what-you-can arrangement. I believe that anyone who wants a doula deserves one who can support them, and I’d love to learn about how I can support you.
