A Postpartum Doula

A Postpartum Doula

What she does, how she will help the adjustment of every family member

Postpartum is a time of huge changes – for the mom, for the couple and for the family.  What can you expect?

  • You’ll (mom)  need to heal from delivery both physically and hormonally and sometimes emotionally
  • You may feel overwhelmed with the bringing home of your baby.  First-time moms often feel they don’t know what they are doing, second/third time moms worry about their older children
  • Breastfeeding is an adjustment.  It is initially a 24/7 job. It will get easier but for the first two weeks, it needs to be the mom’s primary job, if possible.
  • In practical terms, you need to rest.  Easier said than done.  There is always needs to be met – yours and the family’s

How can a Postpartum Doula help?

  • A doula is warm, nurturing and experienced.
  • She will provide current information about newborns and their care;  breastfeeding information and suggestions, if needed.
  • She will care for the family’s needs:  sibling care, prepare meals for the family, family laundry, light housekeeping and errands
  • She eases the adjustment for everyone.  Mom has someone to ask questions of and as a second pair of hands; Dad can ask his questions and/or go to work knowing his family is cared for.  Older children can be played with and kept busy, fed and picked up or dropped off to activities, if needed.
