POSTPARTUM & INFANT CARE DOULA

Definition of a Postpartum Doula

Doula originates from the Greek word meaning "woman who serves."  A ProDoula Postpartum & Infant Care Doula brings experience, companionship, and emotional support to parents and their newborns while providing physical, educational and non-judgemental support. 


postpartum doula is a professional support person trained in the needs of the family in the days, weeks and months after birth or the addition of a new baby. The doula offers non-judgmental support, guidance, evidence-based education and practical hands-on support immediately after birth through the first year. 


The doula's primary focus is on the pregnant person's recovery from birth, the baby's adjustment to life on the outside and family support.  The doula is well versed in bottle and breastfeeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, sleep guidance, infant soothing and general coping skills.  Additionally, the doula assists with meal preparation, light housework and the general needs of the family during the postpartum period and beyond.
