The birth of a baby represents a major turning point in the lives of a mother and her family. It is a wonderful, but challenging period as families navigate the physical and emotional recovery from labour and delivery, altered sleep patterns and the emotional adjustment to their new roles.
A Postpartum Doula is a professional trained to assist parents in those critical early stages of their baby's life, immediately following birth and throughout the first year. Lending a helping hand and an attentive ear, the doula eases postpartum adjustment, lightens the demands and offers non-judgmental support, guidance and hands-on care. From evidence-based support with feeding, sleeping, stimulation and developmental milestones to taking care of household needs, the Postpartum Doula is well equipped to help facilitate a smooth and rewarding transition.
