What is PostPartum Care?
A postpartum doula is an experienced person who offers non-medical support following the birth of a child. This care offers breastfeeding support, education, assistance with transitioning the newborn in to the family, and much more depending on the needs of each family. This care is associated with greater confidence in parenting skills and fewer incidences of postpartum depression.
WHAT IS A DOULA?
A birth doula is a trained support person who offers continuous support to a woman and her partner while she is in labour, offering non-medicated comfort measures such as massage, guided visualization, and breathing techniques. The provision of this support is associated with fewer medical interventions and a better outlook on the birth experience as a whole.
