“A child is born, a mother is born…”

Postpartum Doula Services


Your baby is born, you’ve arrived home and are now settling into your new role as a parent. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? But for the majority of people it isn’t that simple. The first few weeks (some would even say months!) following a baby’s birth can be very stressful for new parents.

Who can benefit from a Postpartum Doula?

Every new mom deserves to be taken care of by her own postpartum doula! And particularly if you:

  • experienced a traumatic birth
  • gave birth to twins or triplets (or more!)
  • find breastfeeding challenging
  • need to care for other children
  • have a history of postpartum depression
  • do not have family or friends close-by to assist
  • are feeling overly anxious and sleep-deprived

Spouses and partners also find postpartum support to very helpful. Following the birth of your baby, they may need to talk things through with someone and find meaning in what happened. They may not know how to support you during this time and would like guidance. And they, like you, are also tired and stressed and could benefit from a nice long nap, or time to themselves to reenergize.

If you are well-supported and nurtured, this special time with your newborn, referred to as the ‘babymoon’, can be a happy and restful period during which you and your baby bond and get to know each other better.
