When my wife became ill after the children were born,
it was The Bluebirds who provided 'round-the-clock' attention for over a week.
They even came in while I was away on business to help with the children's ear infections. Such a level of personal service is rare in today's bottom line economy.

Doulas On Demand

DonaThe need for professional doula care has grown in the past decade; the term refers to a certified professional who provides an ongoing emotional supportive presence to new mothers before, during and after the birth of the child. The Bluebirds have Doulas certified by DONA (Doulas of North America) on staff to meet your needs. DONA is the oldest and largest international Doula organization, with an intensive training and certification program, a code of ethics and standards of practice that makes it an organization respected around the world.

While Doulas primarily offer daytime assistance with a focus on teaching and advising as the new parents becomes adjusted to the new family members, Bluebirds' Doulas will often do an overnight with a family and then remain for a few hours in the morning to assist with a bath or provide an extra level of support for mother.

To become a certified Doula is a lengthy process, commencing with a minimum number of hours of classroom instruction followed by submission of papers, extended reading and a great number of hours working with new mothers who must then fully evaluate their methods and performance. The Bluebirds are fortunate to have so many trained professionals who work not only with our clients but also with our staff to help develop understanding and gentle response for new mothers.
