Listening to your body and meeting your personal needs can be challenging while you are intently learning about your newborn.

Postpartum recovery for birthing women is not a race to get back to “normal” but rather a mindful recovery process.

We recognize your uniqueness and we respect you. This is your experience and our goal is to help you look back at these first weeks with fond memories and knowing that you, your partner and your precious baby had everything you needed.



We hired Chicago Mindful Doulas to support us for the birth of our second son. Lauren was kind and attentive. We opted to get postpartum from her which I highly recommend! She reached out to me during the six week support period which was super helpful! Having a doula certainly eases the anxiety and allows you to focus on exactly what you need to do – Relax, Give Birth, And Recover!

 Lauren was a wish come true caring for our infant.  Lucas was so tiny and we were new parents.  Lauren arrived to save the day when I went back to work.  She was so calm and present and lovely with my son.  I recommend Lauren to any parents looking for a knowledgeable caring nanny or doula without reservation.  She is a beautiful human being with nothing but love for new families.

The postpartum care you can expect with Chicago Mindful Doulas includes:

  • Providing you support that promotes physical healing from vaginal or Cesarean birth (C-Section).
  • Breastfeeding support including the most up to date information regarding pumping and the storage of breastmilk.
  • We are also well versed in formula feeding and supplementation if that is your choice or becomes necessary.

  • Our expertise in recognizing the early signs of postpartum emotional adjustments.

  • Additionally, take comfort in knowing that the day to day household tasks can be easily managed by your doula. Yes, that includes laundry!

  • Most importantly we provide care for your newborn to allow you to rest and recover. We work with you to find a routine that is specific to your needs.

Our goal is a healthy mother, a healthy baby, and a healthy bond with the whole family. What it takes and the amount of time it takes to get there is different for everyone. What we wish for you is that it is as peaceful and fulfilling. It is our pleasure to support your family as you open your home and your hearts to the newest love of your life. While you may not know exactly how much care you’ll need or when you’ll need it, you can rely on our previous experience and wisdom to offer a variety of packages that may appeal to you. Flexibility and accountability are the cornerstones of the service we offer.
