How are we different than family and friends?
- We aren’t in this to hold your baby (although it is a huge perk!).
- Your parenting decisions won’t sting us if they are different from our own. We love seeing families thrive doing things their own way.
- You are not hosting us. We see what needs doing and we do it.
- We stay up-to-date on recommendations for baby care, if you want information we will provide it.
There are a lot of things about the postpartum period that you can’t control: how feeding will go, how your baby sleeps, your hormone fluctuations, etc. But you CAN prepare a great support system and a postpartum doula is an important part of that. Having access to a postpartum doula relieves a lot of stress so you can focus on the important business of bonding with your baby.
We also help foster your confidence around parenting at a pivotal time. After all postpartum doulas are experts in baby and parent care but YOU will be the lifelong expert of your baby.
