Hen House Project - "serving moms and their families"

Please contact Donna to schedule your complimentary half-hour initial consult to see how the HHP can assist you.  Scheduling this BEFORE your due date will give you peace of mind and insure that you will have the support you need at this special time in your family's life!



Care and comfort measures for the fussy baby

Teaching parents how to "read" their newborn so that you feel more confident in recognizing hunger, sleep, discomfort, etc.

Many breastfeeding moms return to work. Postpartum doulas can help with timing the introduction of bottle feeding and techniques on how to do it smoothly.

The Hen House Project offers a full range of services to help you and your family find your "new normal" as quickly as possible.  Services are personalized as much as possible because each family's need for recovery, adjustment and knowledge varies.

Generally a visit 1-3 times a week is recommended for the first few postpartum weeks.  In-home visits (3 hour minimum) or In-hospital visits (2 hour minimum) assure that you will have the right type of support from the very start.  (Travel fee may apply).  Although services are available up to 12 weeks postpartum, many families find the first few weeks the most challenging and the time they need professional doula support the most.

Remember that you can use the HHP only once or many times over your postpartum time.....yet even one time can really help! Services are scheduled on a "first-come" basis.

Postpartum Services: 3 Hour Minimum per visit
Prenatal Visit to discuss breastfeeding and preparing for baby: 2 hour minimum

Weekdays Monday--Friday  9:00 a.m.-6:00 pm     $30 per hour
Weekdays Monday--Thurs   6:00pm-8:00am (overnight)      $35 per hour

Need help but have a tight budget?  Consider scheduling a "TRIBE" consult visit where we will discuss the most important ways that your family/friends can help your family. In this 2 hour meeting we will hammer out a plan of action for those first few weeks to help get your family the type of support most needed. THIS CONSULT SHOULD BE SCHEDULED DURING YOUR LAST TRIMESTER. 

We look forward to meeting you and your family and am honored to serve you!
