Teresa Weinstein

Certified Postpartum Doula

DSC_1175Being a postpartum doula is my passion! I have been helping families in San Diego for over 15 years and decided to work full-time doing what I love. Eight years ago I became a certified postpartum doula with Beautiful Beginnings and then became certified through DONA International. Each family is unique with their needs and wants and I want to be that support and guidance you appreciate with the arrival of your new baby.

I am a mother of three and I know from experience how rewarding, challenging and sometimes overwhelming parenting can be. I have been educated with breastfeeding tips and support, sleeping strategies, SIDS, stages of development and soothing techniques for your little one. My child and adult CPR is current along with all immunizations. I work days, have no minimum hours and am very flexible in order to meet the needs of each family.

I also love working with multiples and have lots of experience with many families. I believe every family that wants a doula should have one. Please call or e-mail me to set up an interview for further questions, references and referrals to specialists. For additional information, please go to my website at Teresa’s Doula Service

“Teresa was a big help for both myself and my husband.  I had some complications in the hospital and so my husband was to take care of the baby on his own.  Thankfully, we had Teresa to help us.  This allowed my husband to run errands because he knew he could leave his wife and newborn with Teresa; he trusted her.  We only had Teresa come a couple hours a day, but during those couple of hours, she taught us about caring for a newborn.  We actually hired Teresa more so for the chance to pick her brain and learn how to care for a newborn.  Teresa taught us how to give a sponge bath, clip the baby’s nails, breastfeeding and bottle feeding holds, and many other things.  She really gave me and my husband the confidence to be new parents.  I think if she was not here, we probably would be very frazzled new parents.  In addition, she allowed us, and still allows us, to call her with questions whenever we have any and she would be so incredibly helpful, never made us feel like we were pestering her. Teresa is such an amazing doula and if I had the money, I would keep her coming back everyday!   She really becomes part of the family and really shows you how to be the best parents you can be.”
“Teresa is terrific. She has been indispensible for our family with triplets. She is hard working and gets the baby ‘chores’ done without waiting to be told – a great help to have her just step up when she sees a need. She has taken charge to get things done, by giving us ideas, and then supporting our choices. She is very encouraging and greatly helps alleviate new-parent stress. She is very loving and playful with the babies; engaging them in conversation, visual and physical play. She’s flexible and accommodating with scheduling. She has taken a somewhat overwhelming situation and turned it into a joyous time for our family.”
