My goal to give you Expert Care and Service, bundling all the skills and training you want at a REASONABLE PRICE.
“One of the best things I have done for myself with this baby is hire a post partum doula! Having Jeannie’s support in my home for hours at a time has been such an encouragement to me! From lactation support to help with big brother Anson and forcing me to nap, it has been awesome!!! I would recommend Jeannie and her many services to everyone” – Lindsay P.
Postpartum Lactation/Doula Services in Nashville
After the birth of your baby, we call the next period of time,the 4th trimester.
It’s a time of discovery and bonding for baby and family.
This is a very important time with lots of big adjustments that can be overwhelming.
From emotional to physical support, a postpartum doula is here to help ease into the transition
allowing you to feel confident as new parents.
Research tells us about 18%-30% of women will experience baby blues, from birth trauma or complications at birth because of inadequate support systems, unrealistic postpartum expectations, prior history or family history of PMS or PPD. Research on Breastfeeding tells us 40% percent of women fail at breastfeeding during the first few weeks, so starting out with support within the first few days is incredibly important.
Getting a good breastfeeding positioning, latch and confidence is of the utmost importance to have a successful breastfeeding experience.
