What is a Postpartum Doula?

We asked a WBC superstar…

“My name is Patti and I have been a CPD for almost 3 years, although it feels like much longer because I worked in the hospital postpartum/newborn nursery unit for 23 years prior to WBC. For all those mamas that asked, Can I take you home? Now I’m following the them home!

What is a postpartum doula? That’s actually a difficult question. I think a postpartum doula is love and support. Not only do I absolutely LOVE my job but everything about my job spells love. You teach and empower a new mama to love her baby not just emotionally but in everything she does. We are all about supporting a new mama and papa in their new role as parents, as well as supporting who they were before they became parents…..which brings us back to LOVE!!”

“A GODSEND!!  Ha ha.  They were a helping hand when we needed it most – especially with no family in the area. They became our family. I felt cared for, was given such wonderful words of encouragement and had complete trust in my babies’ well being while they were in the doula’s care.”
