The journey into parenthood holds mysteries within it; so many unanswered questions, excitement, and worries. Once your baby has arrived and reality sets in, you may need additional help, a guide, a mindful person who will care for you while you care for your baby. You realize that now more than ever you need your family to support you. In many cases, your family does not live close by, or you may want a different type of assistance. Someone who will provide you with a non-judgmental, nurturing touch and up to date information on caring for your baby. Having a postpartum doula can make a difference in the way you experience your first weeks after birth.
Doulas come in to your life with no judgment. Their sole purpose is to get you on a good start with your new family dynamic. They help you adjust to your new life with baby and provide you with the tools you need to grow into the confident parent you want to be.
