Understanding Postpartum Doula Support

A Certified Postpartum Doula (CPD) will support women in their homes after they have given birth or after an adoption. Sometimes the doula will/can provide Antenatal support to women placed on bedrest and in some instances have experienced a loss. Postpartum support involves providing guidance and affirming new parents. Many new mothers have lots of questions about their newborn(s) and their own wellbeing. For some families, breastfeeding support is an important component and assistance can be provided. Others, do not have relatives or much support in the area and can use a helping hand from a trusted individual. CPD can provide much needed assistance to these families.
