Can't my friend or my sister help me during this time?
Yes and no. People come over with the best of intentions of helping you but usually end up snuggling the baby leaving you with the same list of things still needing to be done. Our experienced doulas understand the physical and emotional needs of a new mother and support you based on those needs. Also, things change over time. Things that worked years ago may not necessarily be safe today. Or as effective.
I exclusively breastfeed. How would I benefit from a postpartum doula?
That's easy. Each time you breastfeed, with it comes burping the baby, changing their diaper, soothing them and getting them back to sleep. Those things can take up to an hour. Each time. If we work a 5 hour day shift, that's 2 hours that you can enjoy a quiet bath and take a much needed nap! If we work a 10 hour overnight shift, that can be an additional 5 hours of sleep you'll get that night!
