Seeking Free/Low Cost Postpartum Doula in Northern Suburbs of Chicago : LUSENET : Doula.Com General Discussion : One Thread

I am pregnant with my first child, due January 5, 2005. My husband and I are looking for a free or low cost postpartum doula in the northern suburbs of Chicago. We already have a labor doula, but she doesn't do postpartum care. I have some health problems and really need help taking care of me and the house, so I can take care of my baby. Services needed include meal preparation and cleaning up the kitchen, grocery shopping, putting away laundry, light dusting, straightening up, some baby sitting while I'm at my doctor appointments, and of course some baby care (but I'd like to do as much as I can with the baby). We are warm, fun people, keep a clean/neat home and have a small gentle dog. Non-smokers only please.

Thank you! Julie
