Postpartum Support and Care with Doula Services in Seattle

Jen Laird

Doula Description

Navigating the journey of new parenthood in Seattle brings a whirlwind of emotions. That tiny, adorable human now part of your family brings immense joy and, understandably, a bit of confusion. Feeling exhausted is natural. As your dedicated Postpartum Doula in Seattle, I bring years of training and experience to the table, empowering you to care for your new baby with confidence and love. From mastering newborn feeding techniques (breast or bottle) to understanding your baby's unique cues, I'm here to support every step of your postpartum journey.

In addition, I can also help with:

  • Newborn feeding (breast or bottle)
  • Swaddling
  • Diapering
  • Helping you interpret your baby's cues
  • Household tasks like laundry, light cleaning, and food prep
  • Baby bathing
  • Understanding typical newborn development
  • Bonding
  • Taking care of the baby while you shower, eat, sleep, or rest
  • Sleep!

I offer trauma-informed, evidence-based support tailored to the entire family's needs. With specialized training in managing mood challenges and disorders, navigating the complexities of birth processing, and facilitating connections to additional resources when necessary, I create a nurturing environment. This ensures that your journey with a newborn is not just about surviving but thriving and finding joy in this significant life transition.

I am convinced that support during the '4th trimester' — the first 12 weeks of parenthood — plays a foundational role in bolstering your confidence as a parent. Perfection in parenting is a myth; my goal is for you to confidently interpret your baby's signals, find rest, and cultivate a sense of peace within your home. With over 15 years of experience as a Seattle-based Doula, I'm dedicated to offering the essential postpartum support you deserve during this critical phase.
