First off, What is a Postpartum Doula and what do we do? A postpartum doula is a trained professional who assists families in their postpartum transition period.
I respect that my role as a postpartum doula is influential can influence a families beginnings. My goal is to leave families feeling confident in their abilities to be capable and confident parents to their newborn. Nothing is more important to me as a postpartum doula than empowering my postpartum families and setting them up for success.
As a postpartum doula, the amount of times I visit a family can vary. Some families only need a few days of support their first month with baby. Others find 2-3 visits a week work best for their needs. How often I visit depends on what a family is currently needing and their price range for care.
Additionally, Postpartum doulas can provide daytime or overnight care.
