Portland Daytime Postpartum Doulas

Why choose Portland daytime postpartum doula care?

Get the time you need to rest, recuperate, and learn how to care for your newborn through gentle guidance from your daytime postpartum doula.

No matter how your baby enters the world, birth of any kind is likely to take a toll on you emotionally, mentally, and most certainly physically. Your daytime postpartum doula gives you the space to take care of you, an extra set of hands to care for your newborn, and a listening ear when you need it most.

Portland daytime postpartum doula care that goes above & beyond...

Receiving daytime postpartum doula care presents a special opportunity to have your very own personal baby care trainer, cheerleader, and parenthood survival strategist on hand to help you learn all about soothing, swaddling, sleep/wake patterns, feeding techniques and help you find answers to all your questions.

On a more serious note, our Portland daytime postpartum doulas are professionally trained to alert you immediately if they notice anything out of the ordinary and will make sure you know if there is cause to contact a medical professional. They gladly answer all of your "is this normal?" questions on a day-to-day basis. Your daytime postpartum doula is also trained to pay particular attention to the signs of perinatal mood disorders in every new parent (that means dads, too) and knows when to connect you to resources should you need them.

Your Portland daytime postpartum doula package offers quality care when you need it most.


Our daytime postpartum support begins with a phone call to go over all your expectations, concerns, and questions-- your wish list if you will-- with owner, Sheryl Cooksley. Care is not one size fits all. Your personal support choices will always be respected, and we are happy to make accommodations as needed, thus creating your personalized support package.

When you choose us for daytime postpartum doula support, expect your doula to arrive on time with an open mind, ready to listen, and support today's particular needs. Every day with an infant looks different than the next, so you need a doula who can be flexible to your concerns and adaptable to your support needs. That's the essence of our daytime postpartum doula services.

*Our daytime care schedule is a minimum of four hours, giving us ample opportunity to focus on your care as much as your infant’s. Whether you prefer your support early in the day or during dinner, you can book your daytime postpartum support shifts between 7 am and 8 pm.
