overwhelmed? you are not alone

A Postpartum Doula can help:

Do you feel overwhelmed with all of the advice, methods, "expert" recommendations & product choices, not to mention becoming a new parent?!

No matter how much we prepare, having a baby is a big transition, and there is a major lack of high-quality information and support during a time when we need it the most.

The first few months as a new parent- new for the first time or another addition- can be challenging, overwhelming, joyous, sleep-deprived, and so much more. Being supported at this time is beneficial for your growth as a parent and can be the difference between simply surviving or thriving.

Meet Jen Chandlee, Certified Postpartum Doula

Imagine having access to a doula with over 28 years of experience to help you sift through your options without guilt or pressure, to listen to your concerns and reassure you when tears of exhaustion and self-doubt are flowing, and to offer non-judgmental support for the choices YOU make, not what the books say or family and friends tell you you have to do.

Imagine having evidence-based, high-quality resources available to you, instead of the latest guilt-inducing parenting trend making its way across the internet.

Imagine getting support with lactation, pumping, and/or bottle-feeding without leaving the comfort of your home.

Imagine having a safe person to truly listen to you as you process your birth story or share any emotions that arise during this transformational time.

That is my role as your family's postpartum doula.

Luminous Postpartum lovingly offers both in-home and virtual doula services.

IN-HOME Postpartum Doula Care in the Wilmington, NC area

Postpartum support in your home focuses on your health and well-being and supporting parents and the newborn. This ranges from simply being a listening ear to preparing meals, providing care so you can shower and nap, providing evidence-based information and guidance, infant feeding support, running errands, and more.

VIRTUAL Postpartum Doula Care

Maybe you are looking for a postpartum doula but don’t have any nearby. Or maybe you just prefer to have virtual support, either over the phone or via a video call, instead of having someone in your home. Either way, I can help... whether you just need a one-time consultation or several weeks of ongoing support.

Fees are $30 per hour for postpartum doula services. If money is a challenge, let’s discuss.

During a postpartum doula care appointment, we can address anything related to the fourth trimester including:

  • Infant feeding and pumping
  • Safe sleep solutions
  • Gentle techniques to facilitate physical healing after birth
  • Strategies for twins/multiples
  • Baby care information: diapering, bathing, soothing, etc.
  • Nutrition recommendations based on your dietary needs
  • A safe space to process emotions, including your birth story
  • Product recommendations that can save you money
  • Support in transitioning back to work
  • Referrals to other professionals as needed

You don’t have to do this alone. Get in touch to schedule your first support session!
