North County Doulas has been providing professional birth and postpartum support
in the San Diego community since 1994.
At North County Doulas we understand that parenthood is a major life transition
and the adjustment period feels less overwhelming when you have a certified Postpartum Doula available to address your questions and concerns...
All postpartum Doulas are trained and certified by DONA International.
Postpartum Doulas understand that parents, whether, new or experienced,
need time to adjust to their additional responsibilities.
Postpartum Doulas duties may include following:
Caring for the mother
Giving her time to recuperate and relax
Providing information and support on breast and or bottle feeding
Supplying baby care (multiple or single) information
Performing household tasks
Helping reduce family stress
Screening for postpartum mood disorders
Recommending local resources and referrals
Providing overnight care and assisting the family when traveling.
It is for this reason that new families may need assistance for a Postpartum Doula...
