Mamogs Postpartum Doula

Supporting mum, baby & the family unit in the days, weeks and months after the arrival of your baby. Providing practical, Informative & emotional support

What is a Postpartum Doula?

A postpartum Doula is a support person who cares for mum, baby and her family in the home usually in the first three months (known as the fourth trimester) following birth and later if needed. Your Doula will help you as a family with the adjustment to this new life and is aware of all your needs. A Doula offers evidence-based information on infant feeding, and emotional & physical recovery from childbirth along with practical support and other issues related to the postpartum period. A postpartum Doula will be by your side working with you.

Giving birth is one of life’s greatest experiences and bringing baby home can be met with excitement, joy and possibly a little trepidation. This new road can take time to get used to.

Tasks that you never thought about before or
took for granted like cooking, eating, bathing, sleeping, now may seem non existent and you may wonder when will normality return.

Having good support surrounding you can make all the difference. Let me be your strength, allow me to wrap you in cotton wool and guide you safely to the other side. A Doula is also a wonderful support for families welcoming their baby through surrogacy or adoption. The transition into parenthood or extending your family is the same. Caring for your baby is full time and having support in home, in your parenting choices and a non judgemental ear can make all the difference on your parenting journey.
