Postpartum Care Services
What is Postpartum Care?
A postpartum caretaker or Baby Nurse is also known as a Doula, which literally means "server". We like to take things one step further and include "helper, caregiver and educator" in this definition, at SweetP, we recognize our client's individual needs and take pains to provide whatever comfort a family may require when welcoming a new baby into the home.

Selecting Your Postpartum Care Specialist
At SweetP, we take special care in hand selecting a Specialist for each client. In order to choose the best match for you, we like to determine your specific needs at a prenatal visit. By interviewing our clients personally, we can get a clear picture of what your needs will be before the baby ever arrives. This allows us to assess which one of our Postpartum Care Specialists will best complement the lifestyle and personality of you and your family. All SweetP Postpartum Specialists are covered by professional liability insurance and have been given extensive background and reference checks which are available by request.
