Description of our ideal candidate:
If you are an empathetic, people person, who likes knowing your work is making a difference, this job is for you. If you have compassion for people going through big life changes, or know the challenges for parents of tending to a newborn’s constant needs while adjusting to new expectations of themselves and each other, you’ll be a great fit for this opportunity. If you enjoy imparting up to date information while still empowering people to make their own decisions based on their own unique circumstances (in other words, you have enough humility to know that you can’t know what’s best for everyone), you’ll be perfect for this job.
Professionals who are part of our group practice provide support to families with newborns. This involves helping the entire family transition to life with a newborn. It can include newborn care, some sibling care, light housekeeping and organization, errands and meal prep, informational and emotional support for the parents, and tender loving care for the healing and/or adapting mother. Mostly it requires tuning in to the needs of the family and responding to their particular situation, with nonjudgmental support. This could be a great fit for someone with an early education background or anyone in the field of health and wellness who is passionate about helping families get off to a strong and healthy start.

The nature of postpartum work is unpredictable. While you may have the opportunity to set your own boundaries (number of hours per week, for example, or days vs. overnights) other things are not within your control. You may have one client that is requiring 20 hours a week, for example, but you don’t know whether it will start this week or four weeks from now, because there’s no way to know when the baby will arrive. Working with Houston Birth & Baby can help mitigate this unpredictability because of the team approach and access to backup support, but the professional should still be reasonably flexible and adaptable to the clients’ needs. Depending on your availability and on the demand, this opportunity could either result in part-time or full-time hours.

  3. Must maintain CPR certification and insurance (minimal cost). He/she must be trained by a professional doula training organization. (If you are interested but haven’t trained yet, we can discuss your options at the Info Session).
