During the postpartum period, especially during the first few weeks, each family experiences evolving needs. Stork & Sprout postpartum doula services help women and their partners during this time by providing hands-on practical assistance, breastfeeding support, emotional support and information. A postpartum doula working alongside each mother (and her partner) allows them to gain the confidence and skills they need to care for their newborn, get the rest they desperately need, and successfully adjust to their new lives and changing relationships.
Stork & Sprout works with couples to identify what type of support they will need. Some families need educational support: breastfeeding, infant support, and how to care for the new mother. Others rely more on the non-judgmental emotional support that the postpartum doulas provides.
To meet these needs, Stork & Sprout currently provides postpartum support during daytime hours. This support is provided for a $50 hourly fee, with a four-hour minimum. This price reflects our basic service area (San Francisco to Menlo Park) and additional fees are applicable for locations outside of this area. Below is information about our basic postpartum support packages, or you may hire Stork & Sprout for individual days. When our availability allows, postpartum support options also include a visit during the often difficult evening (“witching”) hours.
If you are interested in hiring Stork & Sprout for postpartum care, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible, as we provide these services on a first-come, first-served basis and priority is given to our birth support clients.
