Postpartum Doula Services

New parents often find that they are simultaneously thrilled beyond words and challenged beyond limits during the first few weeks after their new baby joins their family. In days past, it was commonplace for relatives to help honor the new mother during her ‘babymoon’, but that’s not always possible in today’s world when families are often far from relatives. WMC’s Postpartum Doulas are pleased to help provide both emotional and practical support as you navigate the nuances of this precious time. Our Postpartum Doulas will meet with you to create a personalized care plan so that your needs, and those of your family, are met as you adjust to new family life.

Postpartum Doulas can be a wonderful gift for a new family. If friends or family aren’t sure what to get your family, ask them for pre-purchased postpartum doula care! Contact us for more information.
