The first six weeks postpartum are the toughest and also the sweetest — you shouldn’t be worried about things like doing laundry or fixing meals. Parents were meant to be nurtured during this time and their time should be spent getting to know their baby. In the past, new parents were supported by extended family, friends, and neighbors. Today, however, families are often separated by great distances, so that in-home support is less available. Additionally, parents who work outside the home or own their own businesses need support that empowers their parenting decisions- having a professional in the home can help families navigate all of their unique challenges.
Though we are there to help for as long as needed, a postpartum doula’s greatest accomplishment is to work themselves out of the job. Our ultimate goal is to help you grow stronger and more confident.
