A postpartum doula provides evidenced-based information on things such as infant feeding both breast and bottle, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother-baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care.
The transition into new parenthood can be vulnerable, and postpartum doulas are experts in emotional support, active listening and encouraging new moms and dads to follow their own instincts. Empathy, a hug or even a good laugh together can do so much for a new parent!
Evidence-Based Information and Support
Postpartum doulas are trained to understand what new babies – and new mothers – truly need. The doula helps with soothing techniques, offers feeding support (breast and bottle), and explains normal newborn behavior.
It’s all hands on deck with a new baby, and postpartum doulas can help the days go by more smoothly by helping with the baby’s laundry, doing the dishes or preparing simple, nourishing meals.
Partner and Sibling Support
A new baby means transition for everyone, including parents, grandparents and little brothers and sisters. Postpartum doulas understand what everyone needs, and part of their role is to help the entire family adjust and settle in.

Due to the nature of the postpartum role being in the home, I feel it is best to assure all parties feel comfortable in the home prior to babies arrival.
For the last seven years I have spent my time working for non-profit organizations all over Texas. The families I have met and experience I have had play a huge role in my doula practice. For more information please visit: https://www.linkedin.com/in/ashleydistefano
