Who will visit us daily postpartum?
The daily visits are typically made by postpartum doulas. On some of the days you will receive a visit from a specialist instead of the usual visit from your postpartum doula.
Postpartum doulas are experts in newborn and new parent care. They help with educating new parents and offering hands on support with newborn-care and new mother recovery. Postpartum doulas are experienced with basic breastfeeding support, normal newborn characteristics and normal postpartum recovery. Postpartum doulas also offer household support in the form of help with baby laundry, making sure baby things are prepared and clean, making sure the parents have food and water, making sure the parents get sleep etc. Each visit from a postpartum doula is 4 hours long.
When should we expect the first visit from the doulas?
As soon as you are home from hospital! Your doula-team will be on-call for your birth. Once you let us know that the baby has been born and you are being discharged we plan the first postpartum visit. In special circumstances doulas can visit in the hospital as well – for instance after a c-section and when the father has to stay with older children, a doula can assist the mother and newborn in hospital itself.
Are your packages flexible?
No one can predict how birth and postpartum will unfold. We know this as doulas and offer flexibility with our timings and visits. Need an urgent visit from a lactation consultant? We can swap a scheduled doula shift for one with a lactation consultant. Prefer to try an overnight instead of two day visits? All this and more is possible! Just make the request and we will do our best based on our availability and bookings with other families.
Are postpartum massages included in the package? How does it work?
5 mother massages are included as part of your bundle. Once the baby is born you can pick the dates you would like to schedule the massages. Instead of your postpartum doula, a massage therapist will come to your home on that day.
Tell us more about the Traditional Ayurvedic Postnatal Care
Instead of 5 mothers massages you can opt for 3 complete mother-baby Ayurvedic Postnatal Therapies sessions. These 3 hour sessions include pure Ayurvedic oils chosen based on your body constitution, demo and teaching of newborn massage, herbal steam bath for mother and baby, belly binding, herbal scrubs and pastes, vaginal steaming or mother-roasting and more.
“Words cannot describe my experience working with Sumati and team.
With my first baby my postpartum recovery was really difficult and I experienced a long bout of depression following that.
This postpartum was better than anything I had expected.
Even though we have an older one and no parents coming to help this time, I thoroughly enjoyed my postpartum and was able to actually focus on enjoying my baby.
The diet tips and recipes were tailored to my sensitive digestion and I still crave the lactation cookies! “
“The best decision we made! I have no idea how we would have done it without their support.”
