What is a Postpartum Doula?
Postpartum doulas are knowledgeable professionals who assist families during the critical period immediately after the birth of their baby. I offer physical, emotional and informational support to the family as well as practical help. My expertise in mother and baby care enables me to assist with postpartum comfort measures, breastfeeding support, non-judgmental guidance in infant care techniques, information on normal postpartum restoration, and family emotional assistance through this major transition.
As a doula, I do not: Perform clinical tasks, push my beliefs, share anything about your family, or judge you in any way. Postpartum is a tough and emotional time and I am here to listen and to offer you support.
My job as a postpartum doula is to make the transition to parenthood easier for you, to help mom during her recovery period, determine what your family needs help with and to provide that instruction. My main goal is to educate and support your family so you will feel confident in caring for your newborn when I am no longer there.
I offer both overnight and daytime support. To find out more about each offering please click below or contact me directly. I look forward to supporting you on this wonderful journey!!
