Postpartum Doula Services

About Postpartum Doulas

As postpartum doulas, we believe in supporting you through the internal and external healing process that unfolds within the first 3 months after baby, or the Fourth Trimester. After all, birth is not just about making babies, but also about making parents.

Portland Doula Collective offers premiere postpartum care for families. We will help facilitate a smooth transition home with a new baby (or babies).

Our postpartum Doulas are highly trained, credentialed, experienced and knowledgeable in breastfeeding, bottle feeding, sleeping, attachment parenting, infant bonding, baby wearing, postpartum mood disorders, and sibling care, etc.

We will help with self-care, recovery measures, light housework, and emotional support after the birth of your baby. Our Doulas are engaged and invested in the growth of your family. We are committed to providing you with the absolute highest standard of care with the promise of professionalism.

Consultations (30 minutes) are scheduled in either your home or via Zoom Video Conferencing should you request one prior to services.

We tailor our services to meet your needs! During our postpartum visit(s) to your home we provide a variety of services to support you during this Fourth Trimester.
