Mothering the mother - a postpartum doula offers a new mother and her family education, companionship, non-judgmental support and hands-on experience during the postpartum "fourth trimester."

 

We aid in postpartum healing, newborn bonding, sibling adjustment, breastfeeding/bottle-feeding success, meal preparation and light household duties. While most visitors focus on the new baby, our job is to focus on the mama's recovery and comfort. We provide support specific to her needs and work to help the home and family adjust to their new, precious addition.
