Birth Doula Care
The birth of a baby is not just another day in the life of a woman. It is a life-changing event with long-lasting physical, spiritual and emotional effects. A birth doula offers physical comfort, spiritual connection, mental preparation and emotional empathy for the birth family. Staying with you and your partner(s) continuously throughout labor and the first few hours postpartum, she can ease physical discomfort with a variety of massage, acupressure and relaxation techniques. She can remind your caregivers of your birth preferences. Most of all, she can help you, as a woman, create a positive memory of one of the most important days in your life and the life of your baby.
Postpartum Doula Care
The birth of a baby represents profound and permanent changes for parents and other family members. With all of the challenges and joys of a new baby, mothers and families need mothering, too! The Nurturing Place will provide a professionally trained, postpartum doula who can best meet your family's unique needs. She can offer physical and emotional support, companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, care of other children, and education in normal newborn behavior, breastfeeding and postpartum adjustment. Let a postpartum doula take care of all your needs and help you ease into the transition of caring for your newborn.
