Types of Doula & Lactation Services

Pregnant  and nursing moms ask me what kinds of services I provide. Here is the answer for women in the Pittsburgh area:

– Birth Doula: I meet with moms before their births to help them prepare for birth and breastfeeding, during birth I labor with them continuously, after birth I help them start their breastfeeding relationship and bring them their birth story and birth photos. I am a doula with “Heart and Hands” Doula Services.

– Postpartum Doula: I help moms postpartum, mostly by supporting their breastfeeding relationship and helping them transition into their new life with baby.

– Breastfeeding Classes: I teach small breastfeeding classes and also individual couple classes.

– Postpartum Lactation Help: As a lactation consultant (IBCLC), I help new moms with breastfeeding support and also to overcome breastfeeding difficulties.

– Doula Training: I assist Jan Mallak training doulas through DONA international.

– Belly Casts: I make belly casts for pregnant women who want a beautiful memento.

– Blessingway Ceremonies: I help moms plan to have a blessingway ceremony. It is a beautiful way for a mom-to-be’s friends to support her in her journey to becoming a mom.

– La Leche League Leader: I run The Strip District La Leche League meeting. We meet the first Wednesday of the month at 11:30 AM at my house. La Leche League meetings are always free. Pregnant moms and nursing moms with babies are always welcome.
