Postpartum and Newborn Care

Whether your new arrival is your first or your fourth we are here to help you ease into parenthood rested and ready to enjoy every minute.

Our postpartum and newborn care support includes the same attention to detail and care that you can expect when hiring Foothills Family Doulas. From overnight newborn care so you can get some precious sleep, to breastfeeding and bottle support, meal preparation and laundry, we are here to help you make the transition into parenthood as smooth and stress-free as possible. 

We offer several packages, but love creating customized care to fit your needs. Contact us today to get started!

Sweet Dreams Package
If you’re ready for some shut eye, then this package is for you! Overnight care is our most popular support, and whether planned or a last minute, desperate need, these 12 hour stays will give you the sleep that new parents dream of. If breastfeeding exclusively, we will bring baby to you for nighttime feedings and then put him/her back to sleep, allowing you to get back to sleep quickly and confident that your baby is in good hands. If bottle-feeding, we will let you sleep undisturbed and take care of all of your babies needs so you can wake up rested and ready for the day. The 12 hours can be used anywhere from 6p-6a to 11p-11a to accommodate other family needs. This package can be purchased for single or multiple nights. *Overnight care can be arranged for shorter stays that 12 hours. Contact us for more details!

Baby Beginnings Package

This package includes 15 hours to be used within the first 3 weeks after bringing baby home. During this time we will help you get comfortable with the basics of newborn care, feeding, and setting up a routine that works best for your family. This package is wonderful for first-time parents who just need a little guidance to get in the baby groove.

Doorstep Doula Package The first few days after birth can be a vulnerable time for both new and experienced parents. This 72 hour live-in package could be the answer you’ve been looking for. We meet you at your doorstep when you arrive home with your new bundle of joy, help get you unpacked and settled in. Typically is takes 3-4 days for breastmilk to come in, and having an experienced doula by your side to give support, tips, and motivation during that window will make a world of difference. Home-cooked meals (and a freezer full of them if desired), a few nights of rest in your own bed, and full-time care for siblings—furry ones included—are all included.

Gold Package
This 500 hour package can be used throughout an entire year, whenever you need us! Many parents have support needs in the first month or so and then again several months down the road, when baby is teething for instance. This package allows you the flexibility to call us on as needed, day or night. We do require that all day shifts be no shorter than 3 hours and night shifts do not begin after 11 pm or end before 6 am.

Postpartum hours can be purchased at $25/per hour.
