Become a Postpartum Doula
Consider this situation
- A new mother is at home with her baby. Her partner is travelling for work. She has no extended family nearby.
- She had a difficult birth. She is overwhelmed with mothering one or more children. She is exhausted and becoming depressed. Her body and hormones are adjusting to a non-pregnant state.
- You can become her postpartum doula and provide reassurance and love, helping her to get rest, recover from birth, and make the early weeks of parenting a positive experience.
- She will be grateful and remember you the rest of her life.
