The Role of a Postpartum Doula:

Just as a birth doula supports parents through their choices made during pregnancy, labor, and child birth, so does a postpartum doula when it comes to the choices parents make in relation to their new baby. At a time when everyone has something to say about the way you are raising your child, a postpartum doula will support you in the choices you make and help you to find the resources to succeed.

A postpartum doula recognizes the time following the birth of a child brings many changes to the family and the household. She will bring your family the non-judgmental support necessary to help bring you the comfort and freedom you need to thrive as parents. Whether you want a regimented schedule to track baby, a person to talk to and make you feel comfortable, or someone who will do what you need, a postpartum doula is perfect for any family.

We recognize every family’s needs are so we offer a variety of package options for the postpartum period.
