Postpartum Rate: $35 to $45
Fee Details: Days (4 hr minimum) or nights (8 hr minimum). I am currently working towards DONA and NAPS certification. Contact me for sliding scale fees/special considerations, as I believe postpartum doula care should be available to everybody.
Postpartum Doula Experience: 1 years and 3 families served
Clients per Month: 0 to 2Postpartum limits/restrictions: I have a regular part/full-time job which provides flexible hours and supports my postpartum doula work, so I take only one client at a time and individualize my services and schedule to each family's needs. Typically available for Tues-Sat day shifts, M-Sat overnight shifts, but dates and times are negotiable as needed; please contact me to check exact availability. Non-smoking households.
I have a BA in psychology and over 8 years of experience as a nanny for babies and children. I work in the nonprofit/philanthropic sector and am passionate about promoting community-based support services and increasing widespread support for parents and families through advocacy and systems change.

I was fortunate to have Alexia's support in the weeks following the birth of my son. I found her energy to be very calm and comforting in the blur that came postpartum. She is a great communicator and listener, an excellent cook and a baby whisperer. On the days she came over we were able to get caught up around the house, and prepare some nutritious grab and go bites to eat. She would talk and sing and soothe my baby to sleep while I grabbed a shower, took care of the suddenly neglected family dog or took a moment to connect with my older kiddo. She supported me through four rounds of mastitis and offered resources, practical support and reminders. She checked in on me between our scheduled shifts. She would swing by the grocery store for me when doing so with a newborn felt like too much! I am so grateful that I was able to connect with Alexia and have her be a part of my postpartum story. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
