What is a Postpartum Doula?
As a Postpartum Doula, I am your helper, and there to first and foremost support you. This however, comes in many different ways, depending on the mama. As a society, I believe we focus most of our attention on the birth and overlook the 4th trimester.
I offer evidence based information on topics such as feeding, emotional and physical support for mom after birth, mom and baby bonding, infant soothing and basic newborn care.
A lot of what I do is normalizing. I am there to talk you through what is “normal” and what is not, and if I suspect something to be out of the norm, I have a local list of resources and references to help you.
I am there to help you and your family during this extremely overwhelming time after bringing baby home. My goal is for my support to help ease you into parenthood, or into growing your family, and give your family the balance and serenity it so deserves.
We will do this together.
