A Typical Doula Day

postpartum doulas in san antonio baby nurses

   When you welcome a little one into your home, the days can blur together with so much to do. One feeding can blend into the next, after burping, diapering, soothing and then distractions, we find ourselves right back at the beginning, to do it all again.

Refilling your jug of water and preparing a healthy lunch used to be no trouble at all, and now you're finding yourself scrambling for a granola bar at best, or nothing at all at worst, as you glance through semi-empty cupboards.

When you top that with the additional demands of your own physical recovery, it may seem like things will never get back to normal. That's why having a doula is so helpful during the day. She'll encourage you, teach you little tips to make things easier, take care of your home and make you feel like a pampered queen. She'll help you establish the "new normal" while making sure you're fed, well-rested and have plenty of time to snuggle and get to know your baby without any of the daily household concerns. All your needs are met while she's there, and if she's really good, you're set for quite a while after she's gone too!


5 Hour Day Shift Example

10am - Arrival, Strategize about best use of the day
1010am - Feeding, changing and burping half-way through
1030am - Baby still a little fussy, so doing some dancing and humming while Mom goes to shower.
11am - Baby down for nap, start on folding laundry
1120am - Putting away laundry
1130am - Preparing a grilled cheese sandwich and vegetable bean soup
12Noon - Mom eating lunch, Baby beginning to stir
1215pm - Start dishes and wipe all surfaces, while Mom cuddles Baby
1230pm - Mom feeds Baby, I sit with her and we talk about her family's excitement, how to manage visits
1pm - Mom upstairs to nap, I burp, change and soothe Baby back to sleep
120pm - Finish folding laundry and put away dry dishes
2pm - Swiffer the kitchen and dining room
230pm - Straighten and organize baskets to use for mobile changing station and nursing items
245pm - Mom awake from nap, Baby wakes at same time, to feed. I bring Mom another glass of water and a snack of halved strawberries, grapes and cheese to eat 1-handed.
3pm - Say good bye for the day with a hug and see myself out.
