Austin Baby Guru is known for providing families with skilled, experienced, comprehensive, caring support after the arrival of a new baby. Our team also offers popular classes that support early parenting. Our doulas focus on postpartum care. When an Austin Baby Guru doula is working in your home, you will be the priority. Your doula will not be on call for births while working with you.
Austin Baby Guru doulas bring a variety of skills and experience to the job with them. Among the doulas we work with, there are over thirty years experience supporting growing families, training as an R.N., experience attending births in both hospitals and home environments, experience working with teenage parents, single mothers, adoptive families, and families by way of surrogacy. We have education in infant sleep patterns and SIDS research, years of personal parenting, experience working in the mental health field, experience in the health and wellness field, experience cooking great meals for families, experience working with older children, and experience teaching classes to parents.
All of the doulas chosen to work with Austin Baby Guru have a background in supporting growing families. They all go through training offered by Austin Baby Guru. This covers infant development, infant care, infant CPR, safe car seat usage, safe sleep and SIDS risk reduction, baby proofing, breastfeeding support and physiology, support of families in the newborn phase, identifying and supporting mothers with postpartum depression, standards of practice and ethics for our field, and baby wearing.
