I am a founder of Motheretreat. We are a group of individuals who practice holistic care for women through all phases of motherhood. We have everything from prenatal massage and education classes, and birth doula support; to postpartum closing ceremony, baby wearing classes and postpartum doula support. In our business, we rely on evidence-based medicine and international research; while also striving to maintain a respectful attitude towards the opinion and wish of the mother. We believe that she is the one who intuitively knows what is best for herself and her child. As such, we understand that this is all in the context of the uniqueness of the history of each woman. We strive to help each woman find her place, and to realize what exactly it is that she needs to smoothly transition into motherhood. Our goal is that all women feel satisfied and happy with their birth experience.

Care philosophy

Our main value is following and respecting the choices of each woman. We do not preach certain childbirth methods, the “correct” way to parent, or any rigid concepts. We are ready to accompany women during their birth, whatever they may be. Each birth is different and it is important for us to be flexible and ready for each unique experience.

    “I would love to share my amazing experience with Olga as my doula! She worked with me during preparation, in labor, and during the postpartum as I recovered. Before I met Olga, I read a few books by Micheal Oden and was dreaming about natural home-birth, but there were so many questions about how to make it reality.
    At our first prenatal meeting, Olga shared with me that there are women who will feel the best in the hospital and there are women who feel best in a homebirth. And that all of this is normal, and there no one is better or worse, everyone has to choose their own way. And after this meeting, I exactly realized who I’m and what I need. Olga helped me a lot with preparation: she knew lots of specialists who may be needed, she gave me a checklist of what I should prepare for me and for our son, she was ready to explain everything.

    My labor was extremely quick- only 2.5 hours! Since nobody was expecting this, Olga and my midwife were at another birth, and she had to eventually call her back Mila to come. We are so fortunate that Olga is surrounded by such an amazing circle of specialists, such as her backup doula who cared for my baby, husband and myself for hours after the delivery. Once Olga got there we were all enjoying this beautiful moment together!
    The next day, Olga came to spend time with our family, giving us wonderful advice about my recovery and help with the baby. She even made us food, and we had great conversation about my birth experience. The mo”

    “Victoria was a solid and reassuring presence for me while I was in labor. She has a very calm energy and a low, soothing voice. Her demeanor was a good for counterbalancing my anxiety.

    Victoria was responsive to my questions and easy to get in touch with. I would recommend her services to any expecting parents.”

A postpartum doula in Miami, FL is meant to help the entire family and their role is not just limited to the birthing parent and newborn. A doula provides physical and emotional support to parents and siblings, but they also offer information and advice regarding how to feed, bathe, swaddle, and soothe the baby.

They also often help with postpartum depression issues, and are considered child care “consultants” rather than medical professionals. Many postpartum doulas in Miami, FL offer a range of services that can help with parents trying to adjust to a newborn child. These services often include:

  • Sibling care
  • Assist with household chores
  • Parent-baby bonding
  • Physical and emotional recovery
  • Support to parents and extended family

A postpartum doula in Miami, FL can have a lasting positive impact on a family and help them feel more confident about their parenting role and the way that they feed and nurture their baby. They might offer advice regarding feeding, bathing, and parent-baby bonding.

It is important to note that a postpartum doula might offer advice but is not expected to provide medical care of any kind or serve as a replacement to an accredited physician. Postpartum doulas are also not qualified to prescribe medication.

Many new parents want to know about certified postpartum doulas and how exactly they are certified. Since the demand for postpartum doulas has greatly expanded in the last several years, the number of reputable postpartum doula training and certification programs has grown in Miami, FL. Training criteria can differ from program to program, but most follow a similar curriculum which includes core academic curriculum and practical hours and real-life care experience.

One of the most common national postpartum doula training certifications comes from DONA International. A postpartum doula usually receives about 27 hours of practical training before they are a certified postpartum doula.

There are also CAPPA-certified postpartum doulas in Miami, FL, as well. These doulas were certified by the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association, an international organization that certifies doulas and other childbirth educators/professionals.

As a reminder, because postpartum doulas are not trained to be a medical professional and diagnose and treat medical conditions, a certification is not required for them to practice.

As their names suggest, a birth doula’s main priority is to provide support services before, during and in the moments immediately after childbirth. A postpartum doula’s obligations usually begin after the birth, for several weeks or months. In many cases, your birth doula will also be a trained and certified postpartum doula, which can provide a continuity of care that many parents find extremely valuable.

Many parents want to know whether a postpartum doula or a baby nurse would meet their needs and expectations. A baby nurse might be focused on making sure that a baby sleeps or feeds properly, but that might be the extent of their role. A postpartum doula generally offers more holistic services for their clients.

A postpartum doula in Miami, FL is expected to be more involved with the family as a whole. They might remain involved in sibling care or also provide emotional support to the partner as both parents adjust to becoming new parents. This may even include support for older siblings, light housework, and even meal prep. A postpartum doula provides more physical, emotional, and informational support than a baby nurse.

You can hire two types of doulas in Miami, FL: a birth doula and a postpartum doula. The birth doula is during your pregnancy and through the birth of your child. They provide you with emotional, physical and educational support during your pregnancy, your labor and delivery and for the first few hours after your child is born.

A postpartum doula will support you for the first few weeks after the baby is born. They provide in-home assistance, including teaching you how to take care of your newborn, acting as lactation consultant, and can provide some night nanny services.
