WHAT IS A POSTPARTUM DOULA?

From ancient times until today in many traditional cultures; the arrival of a new baby is honored and supported by the presence of close  family members who  nurture both the mother and child through the first several weeks or even months after the birth.  They encouraging nutrition and rest, share nursing and baby-care advice, and support the new mother and her family.

Unfortunately modern-day families do not always have a built-in support system when they bring their  baby home. Postpartum doulas are trained to nurture and care for new families , and understand that parents, whether new or experienced, need time to adjust to their additional responsibilities.Postpartum doulas ;

  • Offer emotional and physical comfort and support, breast feeding advice,

  • Educate parents about newborn care, bonding and soothing techniques. 

  • Provide evidence-based information, and referrals. 

  • Educate, encourage and support new parents  

  • Help to guide and encourage  new parents  to trust their instincts  and bond with their newborns.

  • Help care fro siblings

  • Help to cook nutritious meals , tidy up( light cleaning) , run errands , and help the family adjust to life with a newborn.
