Postpartum care is about creating an
environment which supports your baby and you. Having a postpartum doula will provide opportunities for physical and emotional nourishment as you bond with your baby and come into your new role as a mother. A doula will ease the transition home for the entire family.

Due to the spread of COVID-19, Westchester Doula Care will additionally offer virtual services. In-person visits will be made on a case by case basis and according to state and local guidelines.
What can you gain from a virtual visit from a doula? Guidance and support regarding everything baby. We will review the basics of baby care, bottle and/or breastfeeding as well as sleeping and soothing techniques. We will explore what it means to be a mother and ways in which you can best take care of yourself and your family. A doula will provide unconditional support, nurturing and guidance and a wealth of reliable and well chosen resources. We will help you navigate your new world as you transition into motherhood during these unprecedented times.
Connect with other mothers as we gather to embrace the breadth of experiences that shape and define your new role. Gain perspective and insight as you learn to be present for your baby and the qualities that are unique to them. We will touch upon issues related to feeding, sleeping, soothing and playing, as well as maternal self-care. The group provides a place to explore who we are as new mothers and discuss the feelings which are universal in nature and are part of the new motherhood experience. Our goal is to create community and to feel validated and empowered as this new chapter of your life with baby begins.
This group is facilitated by Nicole at Lotus Psychotherapy.

Westchester Doula Care offers individual therapy services through Lotus Psychotherapy in its
Westchester and NYC locations. Our therapists are seasoned mental health professionals and are humanistically-oriented. With compassion, Lotus specializes in treating life transitions, relationship challenges, family and parenting issues, depression, anxiety, stress, loss and life change. Individual therapy aims to provide a calm and comfortable space to unpack the everyday stresses in life while learning to tune into our true inner selves as guides in transition and change.
This exploration of self creates clarity which allows us to function from a more
authentic and centered part of ourselves as opposed to a reaction based self.
Through the use of a wide range of tools including mindfulness techniques and therapeutic art exercises we help you to reach your own capacity to move towards health and enhanced personal well-being.
