What does postpartum & newborn care look like?
Postpartum and newborn care from our team allows you to meet your most important goals, every day. Care can look different for every family, but it always encompases the same values, support, systems, reliable education and answers to your questions. It allows you and your partner to catch your breath while you know your baby is in expert hands. It allows you to get some things done that you’ve been wanting to do, but also know that you have Support right there for you. It provides support while you navigate breastfeeding your newborn, it provides support during the day because your nights are sleepless or night time support so you can get more sleep.
Care looks like your Postpartum & Newborn Care doula arriving either sometime during the day or in the evening, checking in with you and touching base about your goals for this shift. Often times day support focuses on emotional support, tasks that need completed, breastfeeding and pumping or feeding help, and setting up systems to make your days better. Overnight newborn care looks similar, but the goal is for you to get more sleep. So whether you are breastfeeding, formula feeding, pumping or a mix of all the above, your overnight doula will help you with either and then continue to help baby settle or keep them happy during the night while you sleep through or between feeds.
