Postpartum Doula

Doula comes from ancient Greek and means Mother's Servant. A more modern and commonly used definition is "to mother the mother".  Providing education not only to the mother, but to all family members. Assist with newborn and family adjustment. Identify issues that may hinder normal progression and how to utilize available resources. Doulas have a deep respect for the family structure, and as such can balance information, guidance and support in a way that empowers the parents to care for their own baby, giving them a sense of accomplishment, success and confidence in their parenting skills. 

Doulas may also provide: light household chores, baby laundry, meal prep, sibling care, parent education, errands, overnight support to allow the new parents uninterrupted sleep. Referrals to professional or medical services, and companionship.

Newborn Care Specialist

The Newborn Care Specialist are highly trained individuals who focus mainly on the baby. They allow the busy parent the ability to be away from the child, so they can work, shop, date night or just get a full night’s sleep.
Like a doula they also can Identify issues that may hinder normal progression, educate parents and how to utilize available resources. But they rarely assist with household chores or with siblings.
