Postpartum doulas have the special role of mothering the new mother after the birth of her baby, whereas Birth Doulas assist women throughout pregnancy and childbirth.

Postpartum doulas are skilled and knowledgeable about the care and development of infants as well as maternal recovery and adjustment. We provide non-judgemental guidance on newborn care and feeding, assist the mother with physical and emotional recovery, care for baby so mother can care for herself, and provide practical household assistance.

 

Postpartum doulas do not provide medical services or treatments for mother or baby, nor do we provide heavy housekeeping. Postpartum doulas support whatever parenting style you choose. We assist you with your needs making it easier for you to parent your new baby.
