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. > Learn more
COST: $35 / hour for one baby, or $40/hour for twins.
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, and anything baby-related. We do not care for other family members. > Learn more
COST: $40/hour for one baby, $45/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, and grammie to 2 little ones. This allows me plenty of time to dedicate myself to caring for your family as your doula.
I currently live in Philadelphia with my Tortie cat, Harvey Two-Face.
Certified postpartum doula, newborn care specialist, lactation counselor, childbirth educator, bereavement support, aromatherapist, and herbalist serving families in the Greater Philadelphia area.
