Research and Information on Postpartum Doula Support:
American Pregnancy: “Research shows that moms, dads and babies have an easier time with this transition if a good support team is in place.”
Midwifery Today: “A Postpartum Doula for Every Mother” All mothers deserve postpartum care from their community. In our society, we have lost the importance of caring for the mother. Postpartum doulas fill that role and mother the mother.
DONA on Postpartum Doulas: ” The ways in which the woman, baby, partner and siblings make the transition to a new family unit have a long-term impact on their physical and emotional health. The postpartum doula fills a large gap in maternity care and is able to facilitate a smooth and rewarding transition.”
New York TImes: If Only Everyone Had a Postpartum Doula, “Like other workers who provide intimate care, postpartum doulas become experts at navigating the delicate and the unsaid: a pregnant woman’s hopes, family expectations, nerves and the relationship between a baby’s parents. They are advocates for their clients not just to doctors and nurses, but also to family members, who have their own ideas about how things should be done.”
