Postpartum doula

There’s no such thing as too much professional help when you’re recovering from childbirth. Having a postpartum doula makes those early days of parenting easier and happier for the entire family.

Your Kingsport postpartum doula, Chelsey Bishop, offers judgement-free support that that takes into account your partner and older kids, fur babies, home, and most importantly, your own goals for motherhood.

Why postpartum care is important

Your postpartum doula is warm and comforting, friendly and attentive, and her expertise puts you immediately at ease. A postpartum doula is there for you in the nitty gritty of those fresh new moms days. From postpartum hemorrhoids to postpartum depression, your doula will support you.

Kingsport’s postpartum doula

I wholeheartedly believe the first 40 days of a person’s postpartum is this amazing time to tend to their emotional, physical, and even spiritual needs. My experience as a postpartum doula has been the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. Below is a list of the areas I enjoy as a postpartum doula the most. 

Postpartum doula shifts consist of:

  • Belly wrapping
  • Guided meditation and gentle stretching or even a restorative yoga session in the comforts of your own bed
