A postpartum doula is a non-judgmental woman with a quiet presence in your home. The main focus is in to provide loving support so that the new mother feels well nourished, well rested, with her household in good order so that she can focus her energy on her new baby.
New mothers can be at risk of postpartum mood disorders, including depression and anxiety, so getting support from people such as postpartum doulas can help them adjust better to motherhood.
In today’s society, our extended family members are not always available to help, and even if they are, some of them do not have the breastfeeding experience to support a new breastfeeding mom.
Each family’s needs are different, thus the services provided by your doula will vary to accommodate your family in the best possible manner.
