WHAT IS A POSTPARTUM DOULA?
The postpartum doula enters the family home as a nurturing, trained professional to support the mother, along with the entire family, in transitioning from childbirth into parenthood. She comes well equipped with knowledge and personal experience to help ease the family through this adjustment period gracefully and lovingly.
HISTORY OF A POSTPARTUM DOULA
Historically, in societies through the ages, the first forty days postpartum were reserved for healing and resting from the rigors of childbirth but new mothers today rarely receive the adequate support needed to appropriately recover and adjust to their new life. In the past, this included nurturing the baby, as well as the mother, into good health allowing the new mother to focus on bonding with her child. New mother's physical and mental needs were met so she could concentrate on the most important thing in her life currently - her new baby. Although these traditions of the past faded away, the need for them did not.
As an experienced postpartum doula with 20+ years of experience, Noeleen has dedicated her life to supporting families in their postpartum journey. Noeleen has experience working with premature newborns as well as twins. Originally from Ireland, Noeleen has worked in the Bay Area since 2003. Fluent in English, Noeleen also knows some French and loves to hike, work out and watch movies in her free time.
