WHAT DO POSTPARTUM DOULAS/NCS DO?
Postpartum doulas are there to be mom (and dad's) helping hands when they bring their newborn home from the hospital. They assist with feedings (whether mom is nursing or bottle feeding), baby care - including diapering, bathing and soothing, and most baby related tasks. Doulas also assist parents with education, moral support and in some cases, meal preparation & household tasks, while NCS (Newborn care specialists) receive special training to assist primarily with baby.
DO THEY HELP WITH SLEEP TRAINING?
Doulas can help families create and implement a routine geared to helping baby sleep through the night - once it's been cleared by the pediatrician; however, there is specialized training for sleep consultants.
DOES YOUR TRAINING PROMOTE A PLANT-BASED DIET?
As a doula, you will encounter women from different creeds, cultures, and backgrounds. Our philosophy encompasses Whole Person Care, so nutrition is only one facet of the training you will receive, however, we do promote a plant-based diet for healing. You will learn how to help women evaluate their current eating habits and make healthier choices overall.
