Katie Maloney is a Postpartum Doula in Asheville, NC.
Postpartum families deserve extra loving care.
I welcome you to browse my offerings and to reach out if you are considering allowing a doula the honor of supporting you during your fourth trimester.
Katie has completed her DONA International postpartum doula training.
She has been a professional nanny for 15 years and has extensive experience caring for new babies as well as gently assisting families throughout times of transition. Her passion for supporting families has only intensified with the experience of becoming a mother herself.
With a lifelong calling toward childcare she is excited to share her specialties of newborn sleep, feeding, and soothing solutions, as well as to extend her capacities of loving care to include the rest of the family; particularly mothering the new mother.
Katie is always continuing her education in all things related to the postpartum period, and strives to empower mothers and fathers to trust their capabilities as parents and to ask for assistance in the ways they see fit.
Whether you have a specific to-do list in mind, or would rather I be my own guide around your home, I offer nurturing of postpartum families in any combination of the following forms.
rest and sleep for moms and dads
guidance in infant care and soothing
family meal preparation
sibling care and integration
bottle and/or breastfeeding support
a confidential listening ear
companionship on outings
babywearing instruction and demonstration
birth story processing
parenthood initiation ceremonies
guidance in utilizing local resources
sharing of up-to-date evidence-based information
As a doula I offer you non-medical, judgment-free support in parenthood. From simply holding your baby while you rest or shower, to providing referrals to community professionals, my role as your postpartum doula will be to normalize, validate, and facilitate a healing and bonding environment amidst the growing pains that come along with your new role as parents to your new baby or babies.
My daily visits will last about 4 hours, and are offered at $100/day. I require a minimum of 3 visits.
I’m happy to tailor a schedule to your family’s needs to the best of my ability and my initial consultation is always free!
A deposit of 50% is required to be paid upon hire to reserve the period of time you intend to have my services.
My doula services are offered only in and around Asheville, NC.
