Mama Peace is passionate about helping mothers and families after the baby arrives!

 

The word "doula" comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves", and is now commonly used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and after birth during the postpartum time. 

 

What does a Postpartum Doula Do?

 

A postpartum doula cares for a mother and her family during the first weeks following a birth. This postpartum transition is a critical time for families to bond and create a nurturing home environment. A mother may be recovering physically and emotionally from birth, and parents are often overwhelmed, sleep deprived and may need more help than expected. A postpartum doula can help bring peace, and sanity!

 

Postpartum doula care helps keep your household running smoothly while everyone adjusts and welcomes the newest member(s) of the family and can include:

 

  • Breastfeeding and positioning support

  • Newborn care and understanding their behavior

  • Sleep solutions

  • Sibling support (care and attention for siblings to ease the adjustment)

  • Non-medical physical and emotional recovery from birth 

  • Resources and referrals for postpartum mood disorders, including postpartum depression, for the mother and family

  • Household/nursery organization

  • Meal preparation and planning

  • Light housekeeping (laundry, dishes, whatever brings you sanity)

  • Local resources and referrals

 

 

Postpartum care gives you the following:

  • Time to rest and recover

  • Time to get to know your baby

  • Time with your family and other children

  • An extra set of hands to get things done around the house

  • Continuous non-judgmental support and information

  • Peace of mind and empowerment during the postpartum transition


 

Scheduling

Mama Peace will work with you to develop a flexible postpartum doula schedule that meets your needs. It's common to schedule several 2-4 hour shifts a week for two months after the arrival of the baby. A minimum of 2 hours per shift is required.
