When a family goes home with a new baby a postpartum doula (Doula is a Greek word and means "woman who serves") supports every member of the family unit as a whole by providing newborn care, breastfeeding/ infant feeding assistance and maternal recovery assistance.
As your due date rapidly approaches, wouldn’t it be nice to have a dedicated and knowledgeable resource to support you during your first postpartum month? What if you could have an experienced postpartum professional to provide the following:
Breastfeeding/Bottle feeding support and education
Infant care (instruction on how to bathe an infant, care for an umbilical cord, diapering, as well as any other general questions you may have)
Helping to ensure a peaceful environment for your family
Preparing bottles and or nursing supplies for quick feeding
Allowing parents time to bathe, spend quality time with other siblings or each other
Supporting with postpartum adjustments
Working with multiples
Caring for pets
Attending Pediatrician Visits to help keep track of important information
If you have been anxious about how to transition your life from the birth of your newborn to your new normal life cadence then you would greatly benefit from the services of a Postpartum Doula (PPD).
