Postpartum Doula Role

A Postpartum Doula supports mom and baby after birth. This comes with many rewarding duties. Mom will have a lot going on, a doula is there to help clear her mind with all possible options. A Doula will support mom with breastfeeding, bonding, sleep schedules, sibling bonding, mom and baby chores, and overall emotional and physical support. 

Night and Daytime Support

This can include daytime and night time support. Helping mom rest, answer questions she may be having, and educating her on her options with no judgement. Daytime duties can include letting mom rest, light household chores, making food, baby laundry, caring for newborn, and breastfeeding support. Night time duties can include caring for newborn while mom sleeps, washing bottle/breast pump equipment, changing diapers, settling baby back to sleep, and snuggles. 

This role as a postpartum doula does not include medical advice, driving mom or baby, and babysitting. 

If your doula suspects postpartum depression or a physical abuse situation, her role is to get the mom and or baby the support they need with no judgement. After birth, hormones can be elevated and emotions run high. Your doula will support you through this time and help with solutions, offer support groups, or gather family support for you when needed.

Your Doula quickly becomes a family friend. Each doula comes with different and unique education and skills. This can range from essential oils, sleep training help, grief counseling, to postpartum depression expertise. 

Love your Doula

Interviewing your Doula ahead of time to find the perfect match for your family is recommended. Its important for your personalities to mesh well. This woman will be with your family in a very vulnerable state. You should feel comfort having he or she with you, and trusting what she says to make your transition with your new baby as easy as possible. Your doula will be available via text/phone, email and in person. It is important for your doula to be professional, knowledgeable, kind and understanding. Your doula should feel like your trusted right hand. 

How long does a Doula stay with a family?

Your postpartum doula is usually involved within the first 3 months of your child’s life. They can support you for a few weeks up to a few months. Doula’s support your family in many different ways, and it can be catered individually to your families needs and their expertise. We do most anything baby and mommy related. 

Finding the perfect Doula for your family

When looking for your perfect doula. Do your research, feel comfortable, ask questions, and make sure you have your postpartum plan clear with your providing doula. This process will be rewarding, caring and helpful as you transition with your new baby. They will care for you, for newborn and your family every step of the way. 

Family is not located in the same state

Doulas fill the gap of missing family support. We once had a village of woman by our sides helping raise and tend to the mother and newborn. Times have changed. We no longer have the support close by. Families surrounding us have their own families, busy lives, and work, or may not live in town. Let your Doula be your village, and help make this an amazing experience with your new baby. 

Wishing you a positive, uplifting, and an organic experience with your doula.
