Postpartum

 

Bringing home a new baby is both exciting and overwhelming. The first few weeks home are full of new experiences and situations that you may not have anticipated. A postpartum doula will help you adjust to your new role as a parent and become more confident in your parenting and decision making. Even if your baby has already arrived, it is never too late to receive the unbiased, professional support that you deserve. Every family is different, and Birthing Days offers several packages to choose from to best suit the needs of your family.
