OVERNIGHT POSTPARTUM SUPPORT

As a postpartum doula, my aim is to give you (and your family) the full care and attention you deserve.

 

My services include:

  • Unbiased emotional support to help you process your feelings after birth, and to always advocate + respect your choices in parenting your child

  • All aspects of newborn care and sibling adjustment (feeding, bathing, diapering, bottle preparation and sterilization, etc)

  • Chest-feeding support and tips (wherever applicable)

  • Basic meal preparation, light household cleaning (if needed - laundry, washing dishes, sweeping floor, etc)

  • Other additional support you might need, so that you and your partner can rest through the night and wake up energized the following day to spend quality time with the baby!


My overnight shifts are usually between 10pm-6am the following day, and my rate is $40/hr (+13% HST). I am also very open to accommodating other times of needs (eg: 6pm onwards for baby's bath time routine, etc).

BENGKUNG BELLY-BINDING

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Postpartum Support

As a Pregnancy and Infant Loss (PAIL) advocate, I would love to offer you postpartum support. 
 

This includes (and is not limited to) holding space for your loss, normalize and validate your feelings, walk you through the hormonal changes that will take place, support you when your milk comes in and much much more. For this service, my rate starts at $25/hr (+13% HST).


Another form of postpartum support that I offer is the bengkung belly-binding services. Research has shown that the process will help with a birth parent's physical and deep emotional healing. The suggested time to wear the bengkung still applies -- during the first 40 postpartum days. You can read more about my bengkung belly-binding services here.

 

My in-person bengkung belly-binding service is $120 (+13% HST), and it includes your own 100% organic cotton bengkung. The duration of the session is approximately 1 hour, where I will teach you different ways of tying  the bengkung, so that you can continue the practice and effectively heal in the comfort of your home.

 

In light of COVID-19, I am also offering a virtual bengkung belly-binding service for $100 (+13% HST). This includes a 1-hour online tutorial on the techniques of tying and your very own 100% organic cotton bengkung. Please note that additional cost applies for the local shipment of the bengkung to you via Canada Post. 

 

Bengkung is a Malay traditional art of postpartum belly-binding. It is a process where the belly is tightly bound by a long piece of cloth in a criss-cross manner, and is a great way to honour your postpartum body as it heals. Unlike postpartum belly binders found on Amazon or Walmart, the bengkung allows you to customize the tightness, to listen to your body if/when it aches, provides ample support for your lower back and most importantly, is comfortable when worn for long periods of time. Beyond the first 40 days of postpartum, birth parents can still benefit from the healing support of wearing the bengkung. It is never too late to start!

Clients are encouraged to wear the bengkung for 8-12 hours daily, for at least the first 40 postpartum days.  A warming herbal paste (or organic essential oils) can also be massaged onto the belly prior to putting on the bengkung to increase muscle tone, promote blood flow and to release any retained water that can occur after childbirth.
