Sarah and Sonja work as a team. They both bring a variety of skills and experience to their postpartum doula work.
They offer sleep and educational support, one to one private prenatal education, fertility support, mental health, parenting, breastfeeding/chestfeeding support, and sacred postpartum services. They run regular parenting and mental health support groups and educational workshops.
At Lavender and Play we support ALL families. This includes and is not limited to those who identify as LGBTQI2S+, those with physical, economic, mental, limitations and those who are marginalized and underrepresented in society.
Postpartum doula's are trained in all things fourth trimester! We "mother" the new parent(s) and family so they can rest and recover while caring for the new infant. We provide non-judgemental support to you and your family while you adjust to life with a newborn. Our job is to help you adjust to life with baby('s).
We can come to your home and/or into the hospital or NICU after baby is born to provide you with support.
This can include:
Investment: $40 per hour *minimum 3 hour shift.
What does this look like?
Supporting your family at night with baby care and feeding (whatever that looks like for your family) so you can get the rest you need. This is typically a shift that starts with check-in and then you go to bed! Sonja will bring baby to you for feeds or can give bottles if you prefer. We meet the needs of the family.
Investment: $250 per night (no HST on overnight support)
(Overnight shifts are a minimum of 8 hours typically 10pm-6am )
