Informative and Compassionate
The postpartum doula is a trained professional that provides physical, emotional, and educational support to delivering persons and their families. Doulas focus on nurturing and fostering independence for the entire family. Postpartum doulas treat the family as a constantly evolving interconnected unit. Therefore, postpartum doulas make themselves available to provide support for the entire family in addition to the birthing person and the newborn.
The job of a postpartum doula is to make the transition to parenthood a smoother/easier process. In addition, postpartum doulas assist delivering persons with their recovery by offering education, physical support, and household assistance as needed. We offer:
Support with self-care and postpartum recovery/adjustment
Preparation of healthy meals
Assistance with babywearing
Infant sleep solutions
Healthy Sleep Practices
Knowledge of Infant Development
Infant product knowledge
Premature infant care
Reflux and colic management
Infant Feeding (breast and formula feeding)
Postpartum doulas do not take over complete care of the newborn but we do support and educate parents and family members to feel confident in their ability to provide newborn care when the doula is no longer required.
Doulas do NOT offer medical advice or perform any medical and/or clinical procedures. However, we will offer referrals to any appropriate studies, published books, in addition to professionals that can provide adequate care.
