WHAT IS A DOULA
A Birth Doula is a trained professional who assists the family before, during and immediately after the birth of their baby. They are trained professionals who provide continuous physical, emotional and educational support to parents before, during and shortly after childbirth to help them achieve a healthy, enjoyable birth experience.
WHAT IS A POSTPARTUM DOULA
Postpartum Doulas are trained professionals who assist a family in the first days, weeks, and sometimes months after the birth or adoption of a baby. A postpartum doula provides the family with evidenced-based information on infant feeding, soothing methods, and basic newborn care. Some postpartum doulas also provide overnight support.
