Postpartum Doula

 What does a Postpartum Doula do?  

A Postpartum doula provides guidance to new parents on important subjects like infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother & baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care. The primary purpose of the Postpartum Doula is to help the mother and the entire family transition into life with a newborn. The role of a Postpartum Doula is one of instructional assistance - teaching and empowering the new mother and family members while lending a hand with some tasks in order to keep them from getting overwhelmed and to ensure a smooth transition for the family.                                                                                                                                                        

Some of the duties that a Postpartum Doula will perform include:

  • Breastfeeding support
  • Help with the emotional and physical recovery after birth
  • Light housekeeping so that mom does not feel so overwhelmed
  • Running errands
  • Assistance with newborn care such as diapering, bathing, feeding and comforting
  • Light meal preparation
  • Baby soothing techniques
  • Sibling care
  • Referrals to local resources such as parenting classes, pediatricians, lactation support and support groups
