A postpartum doula is a professional, offering expertise and support to new moms and families as they welcome their new babies. A postpartum doula is not a nanny or a baby nurse. Postpartum doulas provide support after the baby is born. They have knowledge about postpartum recovery, breastfeeding, and newborn care. Their services vary depending on your needs, and might involve anything from a one-time visit for information and advice, to providing overnight care every night for a month. With a postpartum doula’s knowledge and guidance, making the transition into parenthood can be much smoother and satisfying. One postpartum visit is always included in our Standard Birth Doula Packages and Postpartum Doula Phone Support is ALWAYS FREE when you hire us to provide Birth Doula Services. Following you will find a list of the things included in our postpartum doula service.
