Postpartum & Infant Care Doula Services


A postpartum & infant care doula is a family’s secret weapon! Alamo City Birth provides new families reassurance, understanding, encouragement, and professional support that eases the transition to life with a new baby. We provide support during the daytime and overnight.

In our fast-paced and modern society, life often unrealistically expects parents to resume the life we had prior to our baby. There’s a reason our care providers recommends six to eight weeks of recovery after having a baby.

  • Postpartum support during the day
  • Postpartum support overnight
  • Daily Tasks
  • Light house keeping
  • Basic snacks and meal preparations
  • Postpartum healing and options
  • Facilitate parent-child bonding
  • Emotional support
  • Formula or breastfeeding support
  • Newborn care
  • Discovering which parenting philosophy best suites parent’s needs and lifestyle
  • Sibling care
  • Care with multiples
  • Developing a routine for stay at home parents
  • Developing a routine for working parents
  • Overall household support
  • Other needs as they arise

“She helped me adjust to motherhood and helped dramatically reduce my stress and anxiety levels allowing me to focus on healing and taking care of baby.” – Jessica

“I found her services to be wonderful. She was very calming and knowledgeable about having children and breastfeeding. I felt very comfortable with her and she was a tremendous help around the house.” - Erica

“Valerie was awesome! As a first time mom, there were a ton of things I was unsure of from breastfeeding to swaddling to bathing. She was there for guide and show me and was patient with all my questions. She also made sure I was taken care of. When she was around I was instantly at ease and even felt comfortable enough to leave my child with her after the first week she was here.” -Jennifer

While friends and family member’s support is incredibly important, we can complement their help with a skilled professional trained in postpartum & infant care. It can be increasingly overwhelming at the thought of caring for your new baby when there is no additional support, your partner quickly returns to work, and family members may live quite a distance away, or are only available for very brief periods of time. Alamo City Birth fills those needs for you and provides you with support.

We help you navigate your options and establish what works for your family. Alamo City Birth is ready to boost your confidence and meet you where you are at in your journey. We also recognize when things aren’t going as planned and encourage connection with your doctor or pediatrician and provide many local resources for additional support.
