POSTPARTUM DOULA CARE

DOULA BASICS

Postpartum doula support for families in the San Francisco Bay Area. Contact us or read more about our services below.

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.

COVID Precautions

Due to COVID, we have completely overhauled our procedures and the way we work to ensure a safe environment for you. As part of those changes, we have changed our policies and will now only serve one family at a time.

Yes, we are tested for COVID regularly and always before entering your home.

The changes we have made are to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. We will wear protective clothing inside the house, including a mask, scrubs and regular hand washing is mandatory. In addition, we look to the CDC for guidelines and will follow any additional requirements enforced by the CDC. Aside from these minor inconveniences, the benefits of a doula are much intact and will be experienced as expected.
