day & night care
for baby and you
Our postpartum doulas provide your new or growing family with comprehensive care. You have a need or a concern? Let’s talk about it. Not sure what to do? We’ll compassionately guide the way with resources and techniques, paving the way for you to parent your baby confidently. We’re your listening ear when the going gets tough. Always non-judgmental. Always unbiased. Your services will be designed specifically to meet your family’s needs.
Your postpartum services can start as soon as your baby is a couple of hours old, and last all the way through their first birthday because we know that not all parents have enough support in their lives. We’re your personal guides through your baby’s first year, supporting you through their developmental stages and all of the transitions you may be experiencing as well.
We specialize in the transition that occurs in the “5th Trimester”: the time when many parents are going back to work or babies are experiencing “regressions”. Providing practical, sustainable systems that suit you and your family, as well as, ushering you through this transition becomes our top priority.
Family Tree Doula Services is dedicated to providing you with the level of support that YOU deserve for as long as you need it.
First 48 Live-In Care
You have just walked through the door with your new baby (or babies!) and now it all begins. Who’s there to greet you with the most up-to-date information and professional training to support you? Your postpartum doula.
Our First 48 service provides 48 hours of continuous in-home support from the minute you walk through the door of your home with your new baby. This service is intended to help ease the nerves of new parents, support you as your new baby begins to feed, and provide guidance as you learn to swaddle, dress and diaper a wiggly baby. If you are already home and feeling a little panicked, contact us and we’ll quickly set you up with support that will make this transition smoother. This incredible service can be paramount in getting you off to the absolute best start. Your family (and you) are worth the investment.
Surrogates, Intended Parents and Adoptive Parents
Family Tree Doula Services offers concierge level support to Intended and Adoptive Parents, from nursery organization before baby arrives through the first year after baby’s arrival. Our Newborn Care Class is a popular service for Intended Parents, providing hands-on, one-on-0ne training WITH your new baby at your chosen location.
Our services range from the 10 hours of day or night support to 3 weeks of live-in support. We offer the option of traveling TO you or WITH you. We even have the ability to travel back to your home to support you as you establish your “new normal”. We help you create the level of support that best suits you.
If you’re a surrogate in the Portland Metro area, we offer specialized antepartum and postprtum care to you. We collaborate with local attorneys and agencies to seamlessly provide the support you need. We appreciate the gift of life you are providing to a deserving family and desire to provide you the nurturing care you deserve as you navigate all the physical, emotional and personal aspects of surrogacy. We cater to your antepartum and postpartum needs.
Care During Pregnancy
Antepartum care is available for the pregnant person (and their family!) who is experiencing a difficult pregnancy. We recognize that it complicates life to be on bed rest or to manage meals when you struggle to eat due to Hyperemesis Gravidarum (HG: excessive vomiting during pregnancy). Our doulas support you in whatever way makes your life a bit easier by providing your emotional and physical support, meal prep for you and your family, light housekeeping, sibling support and personalized care until baby arrives.
We look forward to supporting you and making life a bit easier as you begin this journey with your new baby (or babies)!
