What is a Postpartum Doula?
A doula assists you through your postpartum period. The postpartum period is such a huge transition to make no matter what walk of life you are in, it really is a whirlwind! A doula will ensure that all your needs are met while fostering a safe and fun environment. She provides you with knowledge and helps you to build your confidence during this transitory period. A doula will “mother the mother”. While it may seem that everyone else wants to visit, play with, and care for your baby, a doula will pay special attention to your wants and needs as a new mother. The doula will help you to develop the tools you will need to feel confident and secure in the early months of your baby’s life. Essentially, the goal of a postpartum doula is to work herself out of a job!
Why Is Postpartum Support So Important?
During the early stages of parenting, support is of the utmost importance not only for the baby, but also for the parents. A lack of support can lead to postpartum mood disorders, breastfeeding difficulties, exhaustion, etc. With the support of a postpartum doula, you will find your transition to be much more smooth and enjoyable.
