A birth doula provides non-judgmental, physical, informational, emotional, and sometimes spiritual support, guiding you in your birth journey, before, during, and after your pregnancy. A doula is not a medical provider.
A postpartum doula provides support following the birth of your baby. They come to your home, help with light housework, are knowledgable about breastfeeding and many other postpartum issues, guiding you on your adjustment into parenthood.
