At Sound Babies, Aimee Strader offers Postpartum Doula care to families in Seattle as they transition from pregnancy to welcoming their baby home.

Services

Aimee meets families in their home, makes sure they are nourished and nurtured, listens to concerns, offers guidance, and gives a helping hand as they navigate the first few weeks and months after birth.

Aimee’s support includes:

  • Listening to parents and believing they are the best parents for their children.

  • Offering evidence-based information for parent healing and baby care so families can make decisions confidently.

  • Sharing knowledge on baby development and all the tricks she has up her sleeve to make parenting easier.

  • Understanding how important it is to include siblings and extended family in adjusting to the new baby.

  • Sitting with parents as they process the pregnancy, birth, postpartum period, and becoming a parent.

  • Making sure everyone, including the baby, is eating and resting to support growth and healing.

  • And provide practical household assistance to ensure families aren't getting overwhelmed.

Aimee’s Postpartum Doula services are $35 per hour. She typically works with a family for three weeks to three months.

About

Aimee has worked closely with families for over thirteen years cultivating nurturing environments for children to grow and flourish. Her work narrowed to focus on the first few months after parents welcome their baby home when she completed Bastyr University’s Postpartum Doula training at Simkin Center. Aimee is grateful to work with families during this short period as they gain confidence and get to know their child.

In addition to being a certified Postpartum Doula, Aimee is a certified Bringing Baby Home Educator through the Gottman Institute, trained Lactation Educator, Newborn Care Specialist, and volunteers on the board of Northwest Association for Postpartum Support (NAPS).

When Aimee is not holding babies and assisting growing families, you can find her working on her fixer-upper house, riding her bicycle around the city with her husband, and catching up with friends while having impromptu dance parties in her living room.
