Service Description

A midwife can provide support in the delicate time after your baby is born. Here’s more about what a postpartum doula does, the benefits of this type of service, and how you can find a doula in your area. What is a postpartum support? Whether this is your first or sixth baby, the postpartum period is a major time of transition for you, your body, and — well — your whole family. This period of time is often called the fourth trimester, and for good reason! Whereas a birth doula provides support during the actual labor and birth, a postpartum doula provides non-medical support in these important days and weeks following delivery. This support is emotional and physical, as well as informational. And while the doula does help with infant care, her primary focus is on the mother and her family. The International Childbirth Education Association describes the role as “mothering the mother.” Certifications for postpartum doulas Many doulas — whether birth or postpartum — complete training and certification programs before practicing. While programs can be done online or through self-study, there’s usually some type of in-person training involved. Other requirements include things like completing required reading, becoming certified in CPR, and finishing training in a reasonable amount of time. Doulas also engage in continuing education to keep their skills and knowledge fresh. So rest assured, you’re in good hands. What does a postpartum doula do? The question might better be posed: What doesn’t a postpartum doula do? And what one doula does for one mom may differ from what they do for another. At the most basic level, postpartum doulas can provide support and information about infant feeding practices — like breastfeeding — as well as tips and tricks for calming your newborn and dealing with all those new parenting responsibilities. Natalie Warner Gibbs, mom of three, shares: “I had a doula make me capsules of my placenta, which she had picked up at the hospital and hand-delivered back to my house during recovery. The doula also arrived at my house with a print of my placenta and a cord keepsake.
