Our Goal is for you to thrive during your Birth and Postpartum
The goal should be to thrive – not to just survive. Here at Tiny Miracles, we have a team of Birth and Postpartum Doulas who strive to make this happen. As Birth Doulas and Postpartum Doulas it is our goal to help you as you navigate the challenges of birth and bringing home your new baby. We feel that finding the right fit is vital, and our matching process helps to ensure that you and the doula will work well together during this vital time in your life.
Our goal when coming into your home is that you are able to relax while knowing that a helping hand and friend has arrived so that you can just enjoy your new tiny miracle!
One of the most challenging parts of caring for a newborn is lack of sleep. Our most popular service is Overnight care. We come in to care for your little one overnight while you get some much-needed sleep. During the night we care for all things baby related and support breastfeeding, formula feeding or pumping throughout the night.
Light tasks will be handled around the house so you have bonding time with your newborn. We can help with things like unloading the dishwasher, folding baby laundry, caring for your baby while you nap or shower, preparing meals or helping with sibling care. We also offer a reassuring listening ear as you grow in your new role!
Having a birth doula can provide you with answers to your questions, help with your birth plan, advocacy during birth and so much more. We will visit you two times during your pregnancy, attend your birth, and check in with you for a visit once you are home from the hospital. We will be there for you every step of the way.
Are Birth Doulas only for Natural Births?Doulas are for ALL births. A doula will remain by your side and help you through an unmedicated birth and remain by your side equally supporting you if you choose to have a fully medicated birth. Doulas have different skill sets that they use in each birthing circumstance. Your doula will remain attentive and supportive in all cases and scenarios.
How is a Postpartum Doula different from a Baby Nurse?Basically a postpartum doula cares for the baby and you. They provide both physical and emotional recovery care for the birthing parent, newborn, as well as supporting your partner and the entire family. In contrast, a baby nurse or night nanny is hired exclusively to care for the infant and does not typically have as extensive of training.
How do I get matched with my Doula?Once you submit your initial contact form Monica will reach out to you to schedule a video discovery call. During this discovery call you will have the chance to share more about your family and what type of help will benefit you most. Monica will then share more about what we do and how we can help. Based on the information shared during your initial conversation, she will then match you with a doula and you get to video chat with them to see if they are the right fit for you.
How long do we work with our Doula?Every family is unique in what works best for them. When working with a family during the day we typically work with a family for about 4-6 weeks, but many have us come for longer! For overnights we love to be with families for at least 8 weeks. Some families have us for up to 4 months. When chatting on your initial discovery video call, this is something we will discuss to help you make the right decision for your family.
When Should I Book?It is never too early or too late to reach out. We have families reach out to us right after finding out that their family is growing, and others who reach out when they come home from the hospital. Very average is when people reach out around 20 weeks. The benefit to reaching out early is that we still have more availability and flexibility, but when it is last minute we absolutely do our best to find you the right doula for you.
What forms of payment does Tiny Miracles accept?Tiny Miracles does their best to accommodate clients for whatever form of payment is easiest for them. A weekly invoice is sent online, and we accept bank transfers, major credit cards as well as HSA or FSA cards. Payment info can be saved so it is as easy as a click of the button after your first transaction.
There aren’t enough words in the world to describe how much Chelsea did for us during pregnancy and the birth of my son in October 2023. My birthing experience was so unbelievably positive, fast, and empowering, with Chelsea there coaching me through and keeping me confident in the birth preferences she had helped me identify. Just as important, she made sure there were no surprises or anxieties that went unaddressed, and as a result we felt so prepared to be parents the moment we brought our son home. Even now that my baby is several months old and our time with Chelsea is technically over, she reaches out to us with advice and support, and I know that we’ll always have her as a resource to turn to at every new stage we reach. Having gone through this experience now, I would never wish to tackle another pregnancy or delivery without her.
