Postpartum Services

doulawise offers postpartum doula support that gently leads families through the weeks after birth. While I have expertise in newborn care, my primary role is maternal and family care. The postpartum doula’s job is one that varies day to day based on families’ changing needs. I act as a non-medical guide, a non-judgmental companion and a knowledgeable resource for families navigating life in the postpartum phase. As a postpartum doula, I support and care for parents as they become confident and capable in their new role.
