POSTPARTUM DOULA

Support and Care in the Postpartum Period

The first few weeks and months at home with your newborn should be a joyful and special time, but the reality for most parents is that the mix of the unknowns of caring for a baby coupled with the challenges of recovering after birth can be overwhelming. 

It is the common goal of our Postpartum Doulas to empower every new parent by walking alongside them and offering support on a emotional, physical and educational level. There is no greater gift than to see our new parents embrace the joys of the fourth trimester.

You will be matched with an experienced and accredited Postpartum Doula or Newborn Care Specialist. All our Postpartum Doulas are certified in infant and pediatric CPR and trained in lactation. Additionally, many of our Doulas also have comprehensive knowledge in the arena of infant sleep and creating healthy infant sleep patterns. With both daytime and overnight visits available, no matter what your family's needs are, we can find the perfect match so that you can thrive, not just survive the postpartum period.

  • Comprehensive hands-on infant care
