What is a postpartum doula?


A postpartum doula supports a family in the immediate period after a birth with reassurance, practical assistance, and information.

A postpartum doula may carry out any of the following tasks:

●  Assistance with breastfeeding

●  Preparing feeds and/or bottle feeding a newborn

●  Caring for older siblings

●  Planning and preparing meals

●  Carrying out light household tasks (e.g. washing and ironing, light cleaning)

●  Providing overnight support

●  Education and information on parenting issues

A postpartum doula is there to support new parents in caring for their newborn and providing them with the care and information they need to navigate their way through this transition.
