Welcome to D is for Doula

A postpartum doula is not a baby nurse. She is an experienced woman who comes to your home and provides educational, emotional, and physical support following the birth or adoption of a new baby. The postpartum doula does not focus solely on the baby, but rather ensures the well-being of the entire family unit.

Having a postpartum doula can reduce the incidence of postpartum depression, increase the rate of successful breastfeeding, and ease the transition from couple to family.

Please refer to the DONA (Doulas of North America) website to read their position paper on this topic:
