VIRTUAL POSTPARTUM DOULA
As a virtual postpartum doula I offer skilled guidance with coaching sessions as needed. Baby care, postpartum healing, and more. *This makes a great gift!
COST: Virtual postpartum care is $45 for a one hour session, or $25 / 30 minutes. Save 10% per 4 pack of sessions booked.
As a postpartum doula, I am all about caring for you as a new mother and nurturing your family. Ideally I would be at your home once you get home from your birthplace. My role is to help your new family sleep, rest, relax, enjoy, feed and bond with your baby. I will help with food, breastfeeding, household tasks, baby care instruction, and emotional support.
COST: $35 / hour
NEWBORN CARE SPECIALIST
If the mother will not be caring for her baby overnight (or even daytime), the person there to help is a newborn care specialist. We will care for your baby overnight and perform such tasks as feeding, changing, burping, settling, baby laundry, washing bottles, stocking diapers, etc, anything baby related. We do not care for other family members.
COST: $30/hour for one baby, or $35/hour for twins.
Hi, my name is Christine Golcher
Over the years I have seen again and again that informed preparation for birth and parenthood, and a supported postpartum allows your optimal birth experience and transition into parenthood.
I am mother to three, wonderful, grown, children who are all out on their own. This allows me plenty of time to dedicate myself to caring for your family as your doula.
I currently live with Bubbie, my Scorkie dog, and Harvey Two-Face, my Tortie cat.
Certified postpartum doula, newborn care specialist, lactation counselor, childbirth educator, bereavement support, aromatherapist, and herbalist serving families in the Greater Philadelphia area.
