Benefits of Hiring a Postpartum Doula
The reasons for hiring a doula for postpartum care are hugely beneficial. Having an extra set of hands to help with household chores, tend to baby, and prepare meals during the day is incentive to hire someone for daytime coverage.
Overnight coverage is my favorite option because it gives both parents the opportunity to get much needed sleep. Whether your baby is breastfed or bottle fed, having a doula assist at night will give new parents the restorative sleep they need to recover from pregnancy and childbirth.
Sleep and nourishment is a priority in postpartum recovery and having a postpartum doula aids you in that healing.
