Working with parents, a postpartum doula can assist in making the transition to parenthood easier. A postpartum doula does not take over infant care, but supports and assists the family in learning about newborn, self, postpartum healing practices and family care. A postpartum doula will not make or give medical advice, or perform any medical procedures. They do offer education and support, and assists the family in finding answers and resources.
