What is a Postpartum Doula?

Giving Parents the Support They Need

 

Baby with momA postpartum doula is a trained professional that offers physical and emotional support to new parents in the first days and weeks after birth or adoption. The postpartum doula is a resource for the family. They can aid a parent’s emotional and physical recovery from birth, as well as parent–child bonding. They provide loving support so that new parents feel nurtured and acknowledged, while keeping the household running efficiently so that they can focus their energy on their baby.

Research shows that parents and babies have an easier postpartum transition if a good support team is in place. Learn more here.

 

My Approach

I was trained through the Long Island Doula Association (LIDA). I follow their philosophy to “mother the mother.” I do not assume the role of baby’s caregiver, but support and assist your family in learning about newborn, self, and family care. I don’t provide medical advice, but offer education. My job is to help Long Island parents find their strength and help them feel secure in their parenting skills.

As your postpartum doula, I’ll provide:

  • Day and/or night care
  • Emotional and physical support
  • Newborn infant care instruction
  • Evidence-based information
  • Feeding education (breast/bottle)
  • Basic household chores
  • Support for the partner and siblings (if any) as they transition into their new roles
  • Local resources
  • Information on postpartum mood disorders
  • Help with running errands
  • A break for mom. Need a nap? Some healthy snacks? I’ve got you covered
