Roni Yahel-Murin - Postpartum Doula
Even for the most experienced parents, bringing home a new baby
means changing routines, dividing time, and just trying to figure out how to juggle it all.
This is where a postpartum doula can be just a huge help.
Day or night, I can be there to assist, support, and help your recovery.
"It’s my pleasure to provide a recommendation for Roni.
Roni was our night doula for 2 months from Dec-22 through Feb-23, and we are so grateful for her work.
Roni is everything you’d hope to ask for in a night doula – caring/gentle/sweet with baby, and hard working.
Roni was extremely gentle, loving, and caring with our baby.
Roni also works very hard and was cleaning extra bottles for us, etc, while juggling her own kids and family on her nights off.
One thing that’s very special about Roni is she’s very intuitive, and she helped Nathan to grow his confidence and develop his own personality and free-spirited nature, in the way she played with him and encouraged him in the mornings. She also helped me tremendously develop my confidence as a new mother.
We asked her to help us sleep-train our baby and were nervous. Roni taught our baby how to sleep in 2-3 short nights! She gave us 24/7 support during the training period, was “on call” and came to our house additional times, and really gave us her full energy, dedication, and support.
She was our rock and anchor during that trying time. Unlike some other doulas that may take too harsh of a sleep training approach, Roni taught Nathan a very gentle approach, that got the baby sleeping well but without super long extended periods of crying. I was amazed that he was able to learn how to sleep so quickly with her encouragement and with so little crying!
We are so grateful that we worked with Roni and recommend her enthusiastically to new parents, especially those looking to sleep train their babies in a gentle way."
What is a Postpartum Doula?
A postpartum doula provides evidence-based information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother-baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care. Research shows that moms, dads, and babies have an easier time with this transition if a good support team is in place.
What type of services does a
Postpartum Doula provide?
The postpartum doula offers many services to her clients, but her main goals are to help “mother the mother” and nurture the entire family as they transition into life with a newborn. This would include doing things to help mom and dad feel more confident in their roles, sharing education on family adjustment, and tending to the unique needs of a new mother.
Some of the duties include:
Help with the emotional and physical recovery after birth
Light housekeeping so that mom does not feel so overwhelmed
Assistance with newborn care such as diapering, bathing, feeding, and comforting
Light meal preparation
Baby soothing techniques
Referrals to local resources such as parenting classes, pediatricians, lactation support,
and support groups
Most postpartum doulas provide service for a family anywhere from a few days up to a few weeks after bringing home a new baby. Families may have her work 1-3 days a week or as many as 5 days a week.
Postpartum doulas often offer nighttime service to help the family transition more smoothly
into the challenges of nighttime parenting. Each doula offers different services, so it’s important that each family decide what their needs are and find a professional who can meet those needs.
I'm Roni. Former Graphic Designer and a mother of 3 healthy and relatively happy teenage girls.

"...We strongly recommend Roni for the position of providing baby and mother care.
As anyone with children can attest to, once you find someone who does a good job and you can trust the most precious thing in your life, you just don't want to see that person leave."
"... As first-time parents, we were so relieved to know an expert was in the house when we brought our daughter home from the hospital. Roni is a wealth of information on raising a baby, drawing on her experience as a mother as well as working with newborns..."
"... Roni helped me deal with a growth spurt and leaps. She was well familiar with the stages of development and the things we could do to help our baby and us to go through them...."
