Postpartum Doula Services

We have Postpartum Certified Doulas and trained doulas who provide physical, informational, and educational support to the mothers and families of newborns during the 4th trimester and to the families suffering from postpartum depression, during the first year after giving birth. The doula will nurture the family, educate the family, assess the family’s needs, and provide community referrals that can meet those needs. In today’s Western culture most, new mothers have very little support, and holistic postpartum services are needed more and more in this transitional period.

We also offer postpartum recovery plan consultations and postpartum plan reviews!

  • It is a long established fact that having postpartum doula support lowers the risks of developing postpartum mood disorders

  • Knowledgeable and non-judgmental support helps families recover quicker

  • Older sibling support, meal preparation running errands, and light housekeeping are some of the services we offer

Infant Massage

Nurture your bond with your little one through the gentle art of infant massage. This calming practice offers a wealth of benefits for both you and your baby. Studies suggest it can promote relaxation and deeper sleep, aiding in development and overall well-being. It’s a wonderful way to connect with your baby through touch, fostering a sense of security and love.

Infant massage releases Oxytocin due to physical contact. Oxytocin is the “ love hormone” that plays a vital role in breastfeeding and bonding with your baby. Call us today at 254-753-1987 to schedule a one-on-one class or to learn more about how infant massage can benefit you and your baby.

  • Enhanced bonding: Creates a special time for connection, fostering a deep sense of love and security

  • Improved sleep: Promotes relaxation, leading to deeper and more restful sleep patterns

  • Reduced fussiness: Soothes and calms your baby, potentially lessening crying and irritability

  • Aids digestion: May help relieve gas, constipation, and colic

  • Supports development: Stimulates circulation, muscle development, and body awareness
