Parent Text Support
Maybe you don’t need in-home support, but you feel like you need some sort of support. Consider Parent Text Support!
This service is specific to your immediate needs and concerns to help you navigate your postpartum journey and parenthood experience. Think of it as reaching out to a parent friend and educator for some coaching, guidance, knowledge and support.
This is similar to a Confidence Call but done via text messaging using the app Signal.
Note: This is not a service that provides medical or mental health advice. However, resources can be provided for other perinatal professional services.
- Text or voice messages responses
- We can discuss anything postpartum and infant related, but common topics relate to: infant care, parent coaching, breast/chest feeding, bottle feeding, sleep information (including sleepy cues, wake windows, settling techniques, and safe sleep guidelines), nutrition and social and emotional support.
- You will receive evidence based information and advice, demonstrations, recommendations and resources, where applicable.
How Does It Work?
Order your Parent Text Support package directly via the website. Once the order has been made, you will receive unlimited text support via Signal for 4 weeks. You will need to download the Signal app for free beforehand. All text messages will be responded to by Kangaroo Care Doula within 12 hours of the message being received.
