Many women across the world experience high-risk pregnancies and require extra support before the arrival of their babies. This time in your life is already transformative and challenging enough in and of itself--having any complications can be understandably stressful and upsetting. Our doulas' non-judgmental involvement and encouragement throughout pregnancy can help high-risk women feel more positively about their pregnancy and impending childbirth. When you work with one of our antepartum doulas, her attention and compassion allow you to manage pregnancy & prepare for your new family member with a sense of calm and security. 

Our antepartum doula services are available for everyone, but especially for those with special circumstances. This support caters to a range of women, including but not limited to those who:

  • have a history of infertility and accompanying treatments
  • have a history of miscarriage
  • have been placed on bedrest/modified bedrest
  • have been diagnosed with: gestational diabetes; hyperemesis gravidarum; perinatal depression; preeclampsia

Childbirth is life-changing and is perhaps one of the most formative times in a woman's life. The choice to hire a doula is a choice grounded in research--women who go through childbirth with uninterrupted support from a doula have been shown to have shorter labors, fewer unplanned Cesarean sections, fewer need for pain medications, and more satisfying feelings about their births. 

Our childbirth doulas are well-versed in helping you relax and focus by creating a customized environment. Because we are not healthcare providers, we are free to tend to your non-medical needs, like comfort measures and emotional well-being, so that you can be as comfortable and confident during your birth as possible. 

Childbirth support services are comprehensive and, regardless of when you sign your contract with us, our services include:

  • 1 prenatal visit at your home, during which we review your vision and preferences for childbirth
  • On-call support from the day you sign your contract, meaning your doula is available to you 24/7, by phone & email
  • Continuous support for the entirety of your labor & delivery
  • 2 hours immediate postpartum support after the birth of your baby
  • 1 postpartum visit at your home, within 10 days of the baby's birth

For first-time parents and experienced parents alike, Bergen County Doulas will help you navigate through the new world of childbirth, as the adventure is different each time.

POSTPARTUM


POSTPARTUM


When you invite one of our postpartum doulas into your home, you can count on her to help nourish family bonds, strengthen parenting skills, and instill feelings of confidence by being educated, present, and attentive during this transitional time. She is there to not only help you get through your daily routines, but also help you make improvements to your daily routines. Our postpartum doulas' focus is on the mother-baby relationship and, as such, their presence helps encourage you to work on that relationship while feeling fully supported. 

Because every family's situation is different, the services our postpartum doulas provide are different each time. Some of the tasks we are happy to help with include, but are not limited to:

  • assistance with baby's care (so you can shower/rest/pump/run an errand/cook/play with an older sibling, etc.)
  • assistance with your care (vaginal & Cesarean section recovery help/watchful eye for postpartum depression/ someone to talk to who will listen in an unbiased, supportive manner, etc.)
  • tutorials about newborn care (diaper changes, bathing, soothing, swaddling, baby wearing, etc.)
  • overnight support to help you (and your partner/other family members) get some sleep and recover
  • breastfeeding, bottle feeding, & pumping support
  • grocery shopping & meal preparation
  • light cleaning
