While a doula is very valuable during
pregnancy, labor and delivery, she can also be of great help in the weeks
after the birth of your baby. Having a postpartum doula can really
hold that space and give your the opportunity to really get to know each
other, and help make that transition smoother and more peaceful for all of
you. Your doula can also provide information and support, to help
you get through some of the trickier parts of early breastfeeding, bathing
and diapering your newborn for the first time, how to soothe a fussy baby,
as well as coping with the potential exhaustion of sleep deprivation and
any signs of postpartum depression.
Taking care of a new baby is
a 24-hour a day job. When you've just given birth, your body is
still readjusting to being not pregnant and needs time to rest and
recover. Having a Postpartum Doula can be just the help you need.
