A Postpartum Doula Can Help Women Recover After Delivery
A postpartum doula is someone who has been specially trained to provide support to a new mother in the first weeks following the birth of her child. These specialty doulas provide informational support about feeding and caring for the baby, which can be especially helpful for new moms who have no older maternal figure to help them adjust those first few weeks. They can also help to provide some much-needed physical support by helping to provide relief now and then for the new parents so they can ease into their roles as parents and have a few weeks to adjust to the new routine and the new life. They provide emotional support by encouraging a mother when she feels overwhelmed and can be instrumental in reducing the chances of postpartum depression or shortening its duration and severity if it does occur.
