Certified Postpartum Doula
Birth Doulas Who Also Offer Postpartum Support
Just to clarify - all birth doulas offer some postpartum support - especially in the first days after the birth, and often for several weeks after. For those families who wish to have more support in the postpartum period, some birth doulas will also extend the support they offer. If you are specifically seeking postpartum doula services, feel free to contact us for more information about how we might support you. It is just important to remember when choosing postpartum support that birth doulas who are on call for births must give priority to the expectant mothers at the time of their labours. In other words, visits may need to be re-scheduled with little notice if a birth doula client is in labour. This may be important for you to keep in mind, depending on your situation. That being said, some birth doulas maintain very limited case-loads and are happy to offer full postpartum support when their schedules allow.
