I am often asked what does a Post Natal Doula Do – and the answer is – “whatever you want me to”.
From signposting to other services, wearing your baby and pacing your living room for hours bringing him or her for a feed, breastfeeding support (based on extensive experience), intelligent tea drinking and holding space so you can process your birth, birth debriefing, preparing light snacks and putting on the washing machine, running parcels to the shop, playing with your toddler and through to a million other things you won’t have thought of.
If it helps you – I can do it.
Mostly it is supporting a women and her family in the first 13 weeks post birth so that you can enjoy the Fourth Trimester and bond with your baby.
Why not ask for some gift vouchers as a New Baby present.
