Postpartum Doula Support

What is a postpartum doula? A postpartum doula is a professional support person who provides support to the birth giver and their family after birth to help achieve a safe and satisfying postpartum experience and transition to parenthood.

A postpartum doula draws from professional training, knowledge and experience to provide emotional support and evidence-based information for maternal and newborn care in the first few days, weeks, and months after birth. The doula can provide reassurance, perspective, and make suggestions to you and your partner.

· Breastfeeding support
