What Does a Postpartum Doula Do?
A Postpartum Doula combines their training in postpartum physiological care, newborn development and feeding, and mental health with a warm and reassuring presence to help you care for your body and your baby after birth. What might this look like in your home?
Your postpartum doula may begin by asking you some questions about your recovery, address any concerns you may have, and make a plan your time together. This may include helping you learn more about infant feeding and development, strategies for sleeping and soothing, and working with your care team. Your doula may also take care of your baby so you can shower, eat, sleep, or join one of our postpartum peer circles!
Our doulas are different from other postpartum doulas. We are not a concierge doula company - we don't provide around the clock care. We work with clients specifically during the first six weeks after their birth when new patterns are being established. We want to help you build your skills and create healthy routines so that when our time with you is over you feel ready to move forward as a new parent with confidence.
