Postpartum Doula

Many parents find themselves overwhelmed when the reality of life-with-a-newborn hits. Many people are distant from their support system but even with a strong support system, you might need a little more care. A postpartum doula could be just what your family needs.

Postpartum doulas can take on a lot of different roles to assist you, according to your personal needs. They can help you feel more comfortable with baby care or feeding by guiding you and answer questions you may have. They can do light chores such as prepping meals, running errands, or vacuuming. They can help you get the rest you need to be your best self.

They can help with sibling care. A new baby is a big change for older siblings. The postpartum doula can help with the transition by prepping meals or snacks, organizing activities, or caring for the newborn while you have some quiet time with your older children. The transition is easier for siblings if they can have your undivided attention for even a short period of time. Seemingly small things like putting them down for their naps, giving a bath or story time at bedtime, or playing a game during the day can help you connect with your older child.

Whether this is your first baby, your fifth, or you have multiples, a postpartum doula can offer you amazing support.
