North County Doulas

 

 

 

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

Preparing meals

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...
