Maternity Monday - Postpartum Doulas

Postpartum doulas help moms recover:

"Doulas are trained to recognize symptoms of postpartum depression. They are trained to provide warm comforting foods to help restore the new mother’s strength. They recognize the peaks and valleys of breast-feeding. They provide complementary care to the mother’s health care professional. They are even trained to recognize when the mom’s partner needs support."

Physically, emotionally & culturally, postpartum doulas are invaluable.
