What does a postpartum Doula do?
Families who receive support throughout their postpartum period often have a smoother transition into their fourth trimester! Postpartum doulas encourage and guide every parent to the best of their abilities. Every family can use the extra help to ensure they get an adequate amount of rest to focus on what is most important- bonding with their precious baby!
