Postpartum Support

As a postpartum doula and Certified Lactation Counselor I bring comfort and ease to families during the time known as the "fourth trimester." I assist with a variety of household duties, give guidance in aspects of newborn care, and offer a calm, supportive presence during a time of great adjustment. 

Jess Evett, postpartum doula, supports families with newborn care in Ithaca, NY.

My Postpartum Support Includes:

  • Support and guidance with newborn care, breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, and self-care
  • Help with household chores including dishwashing, laundry, meal preparation, and light housekeeping
  • Care for your baby while you shower, rest, or have some time to yourself at home
  • Help with caring for older children
  • Experience supporting parents with postpartum mood disorders
  • Referrals to other care providers as needed
  • Flexibility and lots of encouragement!

Fee: $25/hour


"I cannot recommend Jess highly enough. She was my post-partum doula and helped my husband and me adjust to life with our first baby. She was there for US, plain and simple, which was a true gift. She saw parents, baby and household as one organism, a perspective that is often missing from the transition from OB/midwife to pediatrician." - Caroline A.
