Seven Reasons to Hire a Postpartum Doula

Postpartum Doulas are Trained Professionals

Postpartum Doulas are specifically trained to help you navigate the challenges of early parenthood and your postpartum recovery. Your support system may include many loving family members and friends that are ready and willing to help you with cleaning and meals but they may be many years removed from the postpartum and newborn stage of life. A Postpartum Doula has the most up-to-date information and is familiar with the challenges and struggles of the postpartum period.

A Postpartum Doula is there to provide you with support in a non-judgmental way. You can let all your inner thoughts and emotions out in a safe place with your Postpartum Doula. Your Postpartum Doula wants you to make decisions based on what works best for your family not based on what others want you to do. The Postpartum Doula will help you learn to trust your inner voice.
