What is a Postpartum Doula?

A trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional, and educational support. The Postpartum Doula cares for a new family in their home in the first few weeks following the birth of their baby. A Doula provides non-medical support and companionship, assists with newborn care and sibling adjustment, meal preparation, and household organization.
