POST-PARTUM DOULAwhat is a Doula?

  • New parents know how difficult it is to come back home with a new baby, especially if it is the first one.

  • The first few weeks are the most critical, where most families need help and support. Post-partum doulas are experienced women, who provide assistance on infant feeding, basic newborn care, and physical and emotional support after delivery.

  • They provide support to the whole family, helping them to find their role in the process, as opposed to a baby nurse who takes care of the baby exclusively.
