Postpartum support is the gentle art of truly giving to another woman. Let me paint you a picture…
You ‘ve just given birth to your baby or babies. You come home from the hospital after just 48 hours of doing so. Your family lives out of town and your friends who have had babies are excited to come and see you but they are hoping to just hold the baby when they come. You are tired, perhaps a little nervous and ultimately just want to be the most perfect parents on Earth. IN WALKS YOUR POSTPARTUM DOULA! She gently greets you and her expertise puts you at ease. She immediately helps you get the baby to breast makes you a cup of tea and gets the dishwasher loaded. AHHHHH…..
You can expect everything from light housekeeping to hands on education surrounding all things baby. She can run errands for you or teach you to run errands with your little one. She is available for a minimum of a four hour shift or as much as a twenty four hour shift. No need is too great or too small. Northeast Doulas is also happy to provide live in short term care to our new families.
