post natal support

A post natal doula works with the mother and her family to decide what type of support is required after birth.

Some need educational support: infant feeding, care of the new baby and support for the new mother.

Others rely more on the non-judgmental emotional support that the doula has to offer.

While others have more practical needs – like feeding the family and running errands.
