Postpartum doula support can be a great resource after the birth of your baby. The average postpartum doula care would be for 4 to 6 hours a day, 2 or more days per week, for 1 to 12 weeks. Our Postpartum Doulas provide breastfeeding support, meals, light housekeeping, help with newborn tasks, errands, and most anything else that helps a household run smoothly. Having someone who is familiar with newborns come to your home on a regular basis can be very reassuring especially in the first weeks after your baby is born.
