Certified Postpartum Doula Care with Joanna Taylor

The sweet joy of motherhood.

I am a British certified postpartum doula trained by the International Doula Institute (2019).

Having a newborn is an exquisite, sweet and profound time for you and your family. Yet it can also be utterly overwhelming, chaotic and depleting. And more!

As your postpartum doula, I will offer you calm, patient and loving support.  I will mother you, encourage you and empower you to be the mom you want to be. I will bring a warm, capable and hands-on presence into your home, enabling and inspiring you and your family, day by day, moment by moment.

My role is to ‘mother the mother’ as well as to nurture and nourish your entire family as you all adapt to life with a newborn.

My Postpartum Doula Care

As a day-time postpartum doula, I am here to serve and care for you in every way possible, as you navigate your way through this extraordinary time of change. My role will be different each day, according to your needs, but will always include:

  • Newborn Care

    Help with breastfeeding, bonding, soothing, baby-wearing, bathing and sweet sleep. 

  • Maternal Care

    Advice about self-care, rest and nutrition and help with your mental and emotional well-being, plus massage and love!

  • Family Care

    Snack and meal preparation, promoting family bonding and helping with sibling transition.

Thrive postpartum with:

  • Emotional Support

    Encouraging you, listening to you and helping empower you to be the mom you want to be.

  • Educational Support

    Sharing with you evidence-based advice on all things mom, baby and beyond!  We every client, I see the transformational and empowering way in which our educational conversations lead to a new self-confidence and understanding.  

  • Practical Support

    Being on baby duty while you sleep, newborn laundry and running errands.  I am also known for my delicious and nutritional cooking of both family meals and snacks. Not to forget my neck, shoulder and foot massages, should you need one!

It will be an incredible honor to care for & support you, as you welcome your newborn into the fold.

Postpartum Doula Fees and Packages

Based on my experience with over 60 families, I now offer a variety of packages, according to your needs, preferences and budget. 



$50/hour (minimum 20 hours per contract, minimum 4-hour shifts)

If you have the practical support in place at home, but would benefit from talking through your questions and concerns and learning more, then I offer a 5-hour virtual mentorship and educational package.  I am a passionate encourager and educator, and this option can be truly empowering, especially if your budget is limited:

$350 package

5 hours of virtual education and mentoring support (minimum 1 hour per call)



If you don’t require in-home support, but do need freshly prepared, nutritious food in the early postpartum weeks, I offer a 5-hour remote cooking contract which includes:

$300 package (excluding groceries)

A minimum 5-6 dishes (main meals & snacks)

Shopping for ingredients, cooking and delivery

All food is freshly cooked and delivered to your home

Taking care of yourself is the kindest thing you can do.
