How to Hire a Postpartum Doula?

At The New Mummy Co we have a team of certified postpartum doulas across Canada. To book your postpartum doula support we follow the same process as our Night Nannies and Newborn Day Nannies by creating a family application tailored to your individual needs. Contact us to start your family application.

The Role of a Postpartum Doula

The role of a Postpartum Doula is to mother the mother. A Postpartum Doula provides non-judgmental emotional, physical and informational support following the birth of your baby. A Postpartum Doula will be there to care for the mother specifically therefore allowing you to care for your baby. Naturally, there will be times when you require to take a nap or take a quick shower where they will care for your baby.

We have a team of certified Postpartum Doulas available for interview who are there to support you and your family. Their aim is to nurture the family and allow you to build up the self confidence in a non-judgmental atmosphere where advice and reassurance is available whenever required.

When you deliver your newborn baby, you can feel very vulnerable. Some empathy, a hug, or even sharing a joke can make the world of difference. In addition, our Doulas are understanding – they know exactly what you and your baby need. They help you with soothing techniques, breastfeeding and understanding of your newborn’s behavior. They can also help the whole family adjust to the new arrival, providing support to siblings, partners and even grandparents.
