Postpartum Doulas are becoming a more popular inclusion to a mother's overall care. More and more health professionals and mothers are realizing just how important the postpartum period is for both mom and baby in relation to lowering postpartum depression/anxiety and lower risks of SIDS for babies.
WHAT IS A POSTPARTUM DOULA?
A postpartum doula provides support and evidence-based information to parents with a new baby during the equally important fourth trimester. A postpartum doula assists with:
light household tasks (laundry, dishes, pet care).
BENEFITS OF A POSTPARTUM DOULA
Help with the emotional and physical recovery of birth
Help with breastfeeding
Access to referrals in your community
Parents get more rest
Better relationship with parent and baby
Help with errands and light meal preparation
HOW I CAN HELP
As a trained postpartum doula I can assist with the care of your newborn. I have an interest in helping parents care for preemie babies, and assist with the transition at home. I am a certified ServSafe food handler and can help with simple meal prep, and light household chores. I am also CPR/First Aid certified. I'm trained to give moms breastfeeding support and education.
