After the Stork | Best Postpartum Doula – 2022 LOVE Awards

after the stork logo NEWAfter the Stork has been Philadelphia and the Main Line's premier postpartum doula agency since 2006. They provide day and overnight newborn care for a calm, restful transition to parenthood.

Postpartum Care

After the Stork's nationally-trained postpartum doulas are experienced mothers, and they offer one thing: postpartum care. The postpartum period is their specialty and all of their energy is put towards supporting your new family once your baby has arrived. They love to empower you as a parent; to boost your knowledge and confidence by teaching you evidence-based methods of caring for, and comforting, your precious newborn.

Support Services

After the Stork offers support with breastfeeding, developing a flexible routine, and learning to read your baby's cues and needs. Most of all, they'll help you to just relax and enjoy your special new arrival! They will tidy your house, organize your nursery, and be available to answer your questions as they arise. Since nighttime can be a challenging time for new parents, many of their clients request support during the overnight hours.


After the Stork is strongly committed to their clients, which is why Georgette has taken the intensive "Gentle Sleep Coach" training course. She saw the need to learn as much as she could about infant sleep and how to encourage great sleep habits, and she is available to all of her clients to guide and troubleshoot through sleep issues at no additional charge. Their goal is a great night of sleep for your entire family, and we want to get your baby sleeping through the night as soon as possible. They aim to work ourselves right out of the job!

Family Focus Media has been building community with Main Line Parent and Philadelphia Family since 2010 and our annual LOVE Awards celebrate the BEST local resources for families, thanks to thousands of nominations like this one:

After the Stork is just the best! They have made this period after my daughter's birth, which could have been hell, into something closer to heaven.

The office staff are professional and incredibly friendly to a frazzled new mom. And I can't say enough about our doula, Kathy, has truly been an angel. She has been like a mom, a champion, an adviser, a wise friend. I trust her completely with my baby and I have such a sense of joy and relief knowing she's coming to help me as the night approaches!

2021 Main Line Parent Family Favorite Postpartum Doula 

I couldn't possibly recommend After the Stork more highly. They are truly the epitome of a business the city should be proud of." - Rowna M.

2020 Main Line Parent LOVE Award Winner: Best Doula

"Amazing Doula's that make your life so much better in the difficult and tender moments of newbornhood. Their customer service is amazing too!" - Grace G.

"Georgette and her girls are the BEST in the business. When we first met Georgette she told us she would have our son (second baby) sleeping through the night by 16 weeks. We were a little incredulous given that our first kid didn't sleep thought the night until 13 months (did not use her services with first kid). And sure enough our son started sleeping through the night at 17 weeks. Her girls are super professional." - Mariella B.

Client Testimonials

After the Stork was a life saver for us. N.R. Philadelphia, PA

Thank you all so much! We really would not have made it through without the love and kindness from everyone at After the Stork! K.B. Newtown, PA 

We were so impressed with After the Stork.  Every doula we ever interacted with was wonderful, professional, caring.  We don’t know how we would have made it without you all. We appreciated your ability to accommodate those added Friday nights.  The doulas have so much experience and are so wonderful, truly angels.  We will miss them terribly… M.B. Merion Station, PA

We were extremely happy with After the Stork -- from Georgette and Carli to our doulas. Everyone was caring, professional and wonderful. Each doula brought something different of value to us and I was very happy with all of them. It was a great decision to work with ATS, from the ability to get some rest and have less "chores" on those nights to what they taught us with tips and tricks along the way. Lindsey P., Wayne, PA

"After the Stork is a wonderful resource for new and experienced parents after the birth of a baby. We did not use a doula service after our first child was born. I did so the second time around with some reservations. After the first night, I was completely at ease and so elated that we had chosen to use After the Stork. Especially since we had another child, getting much needed sleep was truly a gift. Moreover, Georgette and her entire staff are so knowledgeable and always available for questions and advice even though at first I did not think I would need it as much as I did!" Audrey A.

    Working with the doulas at After the Stork was an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone in the area looking to get post partum care in the area. My husband and I just rave about the service and the time that we had to help me recover, and give my husband the sleep he needed to effectively manage our two year old as well as juggle work. The help was invaluable.
