You may have heard the term night nurse but this term does not truly capture all that a postpartum doula does. It is true, that they often offer services that provide rest for the mother, but they also offer a wealth of knowledge and education for the parents. This includes, but isn’t limited to; Lactation solutions and education, placenta encapsulation, colic treatment, infant bonding, baby hygiene, errands, transitioning older siblings, sleep training, postpartum depression services, circumcision care, bris ceremony support, and massage. Wow! That’s a lot of useful information and it doesn’t even cover all that a postpartum doula can do for your family. Want to know more?
