What is a Postpartum Doula?
A postpartum doula provides information on things such as infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother–baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care.
A postpartum doula is there to help a new family in those first days and weeks after bringing home a new baby. Research shows that moms, dads and babies have an easier time with this transition if a good support team is in place.
Why hire a Postpartum Doula?
Most new parents will tell you that navigating through those first few days after bringing home a new baby is anything but easy! Even for the most experienced parents, bringing home a new baby means changing routines, dividing time and just trying to figure out how to juggle it all.
This is where the help of a postpartum doula can be just the answer that these parents are looking for. Postpartum doulas assist families who are bringing home a new baby, whether that is through birth or adoption.
What type of services do you provide?
As postpartum doula, many services are offered to clients, but my main goal is to help “mother the mother” and nurture the entire family as they transition into life with a newborn. This would include doing things to help mom and dad feel more confident in their roles, sharing education on family adjustment, and tending to the unique needs of a new mother.
As a labor and postpartum doula, I work with each family individually to find out their particular needs.
