Postpartum doulas do not provide medical services or treatment for mother or baby. A doula is not a babysitter, or a “heavy” household cleaner, nor is she a taxi service, a discipliner, or a chef.

Postpartum doula care can be started within 3 months of the birth. Times and dates are at the mothers needs and convenience. Postpartum I generally spend 2-5 days with you for anywhere from 30 minutes up to the length of time you need. I have worked with families anywhere from a few days to several months depending on needs.
