Postpartum Support

By mothering the mother, a postpartum doula enables the mother to recover from pregnancy and birth while focusing her energy on bonding with her new baby. Bringing home a newborn is a vulnerable, magical time. The extra set of hands and non-judgmental support eases the transition of bringing a new baby home.
