POSTPARTUM SUPPORT

DOULAS by the BAY works with couples to identify what type of support they need. As postpartum doulas our first priority is to insure that the new mother is well rested and relaxed, and to assist her with breastfeeding and bonding with her baby. We bring nurturing and care to the new family, and try to lighten the load that new parents inevitably feel. Our doulas are experienced with multiples, preemies and special needs babies so we can help your family get off to a great start whatever your unique situation might be. Even though services provided will vary from client to client, typical postpartum services include:

  • Regularly visiting at your home during the early days after birth and into the first few months postpartum, or longer as needed
  • Providing physical, emotional, educational and practical support to the family following the birth of the baby
  • Caring for the mother, giving her time to recuperate and relax
  • Assisting with breastfeeding issues, one-on-one or over the phone counseling
  • Helping reduce family stress by screening for postpartum mood disorders
  • Assisting with newborn care such as diapering, bathing, and comforting
  • Providing information on baby soothing techniques
  • Helping with baby sleep issues
  • Providing day & overnight care
