After Baby Care
Postpartum doulas serve families during the first days and weeks after bringing baby home. They take care of the mother and nurture the entire family during this time of transition. Doulas help with mother-baby bonding, infant feeding, basic newborn care, and infant soothing. The mother is also cared for while she physically and emotionally recovers from birth. The goal of this support is to validate and enhance the parents' intuition and encourage confidence in their own parenting style.
