A postpartum doula is a trained professional who can provide education, care and support to the family after the birth of a new baby. Postpartum doulas have experience in recovering from childbirth, baby care, breastfeeding, and infant sleep. They provide non-judgmental support while meeting the general needs of the family.

Postpartum doulas are sometimes confused with baby nurses, but postpartum doulas provide care to the entire family, not just the baby. They do not provide medical care to clients, but can provide families with important information so they can make informed decisions. Postpartum doulas help maintain a strong relationship between clients and their caregivers.Let us nurture and care for your family as you make the transition to a larger family.

What postpartum doulas do:

Light Housekeeping
Postpartum doulas can clean up the home, wash dishes, wash and fold laundry, sweep and mops your floors, etc.
Sibling Care
A postpartum doula can look after and care for younger siblings, so parents can rest, heal from birth, and get to know baby.
Breastfeeding Support
Breastfeeding can be very rewarding, but it can also be a challenge for some new parents and babies. A postpartum doula can educate and give tips for breastfeeding success. Our doulas also come with a wide network of professionals, so they can refer you to a Board-Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) if breastfeeding troubles are beyond her scope of practice.
Meal Preparation
Need a fridge full of prepared snacks? Want a nutritious meal, but are recovering from a difficult birth or a cesarean? A postpartum doula can prepare a warm, home cooked meal for your family.
Errand Running
Grocery store. Dry Cleaner. Drug store. You name it, we are on it.
Overnight Baby Care
Postpartum doulas are happy to care for your baby while you and your partner get some much needed sleep. Only be interrupted when baby needs to nurse, and leave the diaper changes and baby care to us.
Access to Community Resources
Our doulas are active in the birth community and have established relationships with many professionals throughout the Baltimore/Annapolis area. They give parents access to a network of providers including lactation specialists, chiropractors, placenta encapsulation specialists, pediatricians and more.
