Additional Doula Services
Doula Services are comprehensive and AlloTribe’s goal is to provide well rounded support to all of the families under our care. Additional services that AlloTribe offers and that our doulas support include:
Our childbirth education is designed by doulas. We’ve spent years listening to our clients and supporting them in labor and birth at hospitals, birth centers and their homes. We know how to prepare families in a way that is not overwhelming. Our childbirth education equips families with a strong understanding of essential elements that will help them understand options available to them. Parents learn about the physiology of birth, prenatal activities to support birth, medical interventions and why they are used and how to communicate your goals to medical staff. In addition, families will have the trusted support of a doula to help them put this knowledge to use during the high energy hours of labor.
Newborn Care Classes
Newborns require care 24 hours a day. Bringing them home from the hospital can be daunting and overwhelming, causing you to wonder if your gut is steering you in the right direction about all things that they do: wondering if they are eating enough, sleeping too much, not enough, and anything else running through your mind. We provide care for the family, meeting you exactly where you are and helping you to create a plan to get you through those first few weeks. Bathing, Umbilical cord care, reflexes, development, swaddling, wearing your baby, not wearing your baby, and sleep. We give you that information while also giving you a reprieve.
Lactation & Feeding Support
Supporting a breastfeeding relationship, bottle-feeding relationship, or a combination thereof, listening to the mom’s needs through this process and experience. We can help with everything from creating a routine, back-up support overnight, back to work prep, and problem solving for any feeding issues that may arise. The care can be provided by the appropriate professional.

Car Seat Inspections
Bringing home a new baby in an infant car seat? How about changing your car seat from rear-facing to forward-facing? Or, thinking about upgrading to a booster side and can’t decide if it’s the right time? We can help! We are happy to offer private car seat inspections by our certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST). Every car seat should be inspected in your vehicle to ensure safe installation and proper fit of the child. Please contact us to book your inspection or add on to any other service package.
Bengkung Belly Binding is an ancient art of wrapping the abdomen shortly after giving birth and into the postpartum period. The wrap gives the healing belly extra support and stability as the uterus begins to shrink and the abdominal organs begin to move back to normal positions. Additionally, the wrap helps keep the torso and the rest of the body secure and in balance. Belly binding can be a great helper when breastfeeding, as it supports the rib cage and middle back. Even pressure is applied throughout the wrap as it goes around the entire abdominal cavity and in turn, supports the back and posture. Each session involves a warm belly rub with therapeutic herbs to aid in the healing process as well as self-instruction for further wrapping.
