POSTPARTUM DOULA NYC

Postpartum Doula Services

My aim as a postpartum doula is to “mother the mother”. There are so many emotional and physical changes that are occurring during the 4th trimester. It is an overwhelming time in your “journey” into motherhood. I am there to support you and your family so that you can spend precious moments with your little one.

 

I will assist with resources, newborn care, cloth diapering (if choosing to use), breastfeeding guidance, sibling adjustment, continuous physical and emotional support, light meal prep and organization.   

 

Benefits of a Postpartum Doula

 

  • Mothers who have doula support produce more milk. Oxytocin (hormone) increases from having support and reassurance

  • Mothers who have doulas regain confidence faster than when they are alone

  • Dads who have doulas learn skills earlier and are able to take care of their infant alone earlier

  • Grandparents who are around doulas learn to care for new parents in a
    more gentle and supportive way

  • The first weeks will seem less stressful when you have a postpartum doula
