What does day-support of a Postpartum Doula look like?

  • Newborn care education and interaction with the family

  • Help with feeding style and pumping

On average, for day support with a new baby, it is common to hire a postpartum doula for 2-3 day shifts per week, four hours a day, for the first 4 weeks. Sometimes, clients like to have more help for the first 2 weeks postpartum, with a decrease in hours as the weeks continue. Many clients like to begin  heavier day support when the partner goes back to work. There is no specific time for day shifts, it depends on the family.

What to expect

What does overnight-support of a Postpartum Doula look like?

The goal of the Postpartum Doula is for the family to get a good rest. We will bring the baby to the mom, sit with mom and make sure everything is going well, if they are comfortable, we will leave the room. We help the new parents with the burping and changing of the diaper, as well as holding the baby upright to help with reflux after feedings. We help with sleep conditioning and fostering good sleep habits in a newborn, this means keeping the space dark and quiet so the baby will get  into a good sleep routine.

Doulas will rest while the baby rests if there isn’t anything that needs to be done. During overnights, if the baby is bottle fed or the mom is pumping, we always help by washing and setting up everything for the next feeding before the shift is over.
