Postpartum Doula Services
Postpartum doulas cover a wide range of needs for the whole family. Some of the services provided are: breastfeeding support and education; emotional peer support and resources for professional and peer support, if needed; assistance with light meal prep as well as household tasks such as tidying up, folding laundry, and washing dishes; tending to baby while mama takes a much needed shower or nap; education with newborn’s basic needs such as swaddling, soothing, circumcision care, and bathing; assistance with older siblings; support with physical recovery after childbirth; and referral to outside resources for both mama and baby.
Mothers Deserve to be Nurtured, Too!
Once baby arrives, you may feel as though all of the attention is directed to the infant, and not yourself. The truth is that mothers and babies equally require care and attention, and this is where we come in. Postpartum doulas provide support to both mother and baby, and help your family transition to life with a newborn. Whether you are a brand new mother or a veteran parent, you can benefit from the care and nurturing a postpartum doula can provide.
