Postpartum Doula Services

A Postpartum Doula is an essential part of the family support team after the birth of a baby. The role of the doula is to provide the family with evidence based information and support in the areas of newborn care and feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth (mom) and family bonding.  The doula will help mom, partner and sibling(s) have a smooth transition during this special time.

Services include:

  • Rest so that you can heal
  • Gentle reassurance and education as you gain confidence
  • Attention to basic family needs- meals, sibling & pet care
  • Help with practical chores such as light housekeeping, laundry and errands, so you concentrate on regaining your strength and getting to know your baby
  • 24- hour in hospital breastfeeding support
  • Prenatal at-home help for women on bedrest
