Here is a little information about postpartum doulas:
Postpartum doulas are non-medical, non-judgmental professionals who provide informational, physical, and emotional support in the weeks and months following childbirth. Their services are customized to address the unique needs of each woman and family.
Infant feeding support: training, experience, and additional resources for both breastfeeding moms and bottle-feeding parents, with additional training to support the lactation journey
New baby care education: building your confidence in the basics of infant care, such as bathing, cord care, circumcision care, dressing, cloth or disposable diapering, infant soothing techniques, and patterns and habits to establish good baby sleep
Family adjustment: support for the whole family’s adjustment to life with new baby, including partners, siblings, and pets
Meal preparation: a home-cooked meal made fresh and ready-to-eat
Household care: laundry, linens, sweeping, vacuuming, dishes, light cleaning, plant care, pet care, dog walking, and errand-running
Sibling care: care for older children so that parents and baby can rest and bond
We are going to raise funds to support women during these next few weeks by offering them hourly in home doula care. To purchase a gift certificate head here:
Each certificate purchased is providing one hour of care to a woman in need. We will take donations through May 10 and anonymously give to women in need.
We know our community of women is so strong and giving and we’d ask that you would give to whatever capacity is comfortable to you!
These women will be able to receive the services listed above. To learn more about better beginnings head to their website:
As we’re taking nominations and recommendations of women in need, if you know of a postpartum mama that would benefit from receiving free in-home doula care during these hard times please email us - firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so grateful for the women of this community and cannot wait to bless women in need right now!
