What is the -“Your Double + Doula DREAM Team.”
When you work with us as, you are getting a 2 Doula team, we call it “Your Double + Doula team.” A team is the best way to have peace of mind about who will be with you. Unlike a solo doula, we never have to look for a backup doula online, when suddenly we win the lottery and fly to Paris. You will have got to know personally both your doulas and spoken on the phone many times. You will be comfortable and excited about your Double+Doula Team.
Postpartum /Lactation Doulas – Breastfeeding Support
We use the term Postpartum/Lactation Doulas, because of the extensive training in breastfeeding they have.
In Nashville in years past the affectionate term for a part of what we do was called “Baby Nurse.” It is a term you still hear in the South and in Nashville. So you might hear your Great Grandmother say, have your found a Baby Nurse yet? Those ladies also did overnight shift taking care of the baby so the parents could sleep. We call that job now a Postpartum Doula. Please let your Great Grandmother or Grandmother know she can still get you a Gift Certificate for what she calls a “Baby Nurse.”
We serve every kind of family, those with special needs, postpartum mood issues, adoption, single parents, recovering from surgery, partners on the road, partners who are in a rotation, we also come in and train your family on how to care for your infant.
Our Postpartum Lactation Doulas have been expertly trained beyond the routine beginner standards of Doulas today. Our Doulas have advanced Breastfeeding training, and addition training in Natural Breastfeeding, Happiest Baby on the Block, baby calming and sleeping, Infant Care Specialist, Sleep Coaching for Infants, baby signing, placenta capsules usage, baby wearing, skin to skin bonding and kangaroo care, parenting education, postpartum recovery and all the rest that falls into what we call the “Instruction Guide for Newborns”.
We value your family and your wellbeing, so we don’t just leave once we’re done with our labor or postpartum services , we want to care for you for the entire fourth trimester and beyond, that is why we set up support groups and monthly events to get together with moms in the Nashville area who are on the same journey you are to share in the joys and the struggles of being a new parent.
