I’m home with the baby(ies) now… what….HELP!!!
First off…take a deep breath.
I, as a postpartum doula am here to help you and your family adjust to life with your new little bundle of joy!
Here is some info in case you aren’t quite sure what a Postpartum doula can do for you. Postpartum doulas are skilled and knowledgeable about the care and development of infants as well as maternal recovery and adjustment. We provide non-judgemental guidance on newborn care and feeding, assist the mother with physical and emotional recovery, care for baby so mother can care for herself, and provide practical household assistance.
Benefits of Postpartum Doula Care:
~ Increases success of breastfeeding
