The Doula that attends the birth will come to your home for a Postpartum check within the first week after baby. This visit is to chat through the birth experience and answer any early Postpartum or Infant feeding questions.
Doulas teach and empower you to Advocate for yourself. We help you prepare for your birth, but also teach you to ask the right questions during your birth. Nothing is more important than making important and informed choices for yourself and your family.
