The focus of a postnatal doula is on “mothering the mother”. As a postnatal doula I support you after birth, which allows you to bond with your new baby and recover from childbirth. I provide care to a family with a newborn by helping with care of the new mother, lite housekeeping, meal preparation, care for other siblings, running of errands, support with your partner or assistance with newborn care, such as breastfeeding. I establish a calm and healing environment for the new family during this intense and beautiful transition. Postnatal doulas understand the physical and emotional needs of the family after birth and the developmental stages of a newborn.
