Support for Mothers After Birth
Childbirth is a natural and life changing experience for a new mother, and all women need care after the birth of a child. Things like long labors, birth complications, and c-sections can make the transition to home even more difficult. Many families have difficulties finding the help they need to support them through the first few weeks and months postpartum. For these reasons, MAYA provides free postpartum doula services to assist new moms during this time of transition.
A postpartum doula is a professional trained in supporting new families during the early months after delivery, and sometimes beyond. They offer practical and emotional support, education, and referrals to help clients become more confident in their skills as new parents. Whether your first or fifth child, the doula can make a difference by helping you build the skills that will help you thrive in parenthood.
A postpartum doula can help with:
- Breastfeeding and bottle feeding support
- Newborn care
- Sibling adjustment
- Emotional support
- Meal preparation
- Providing referrals for other services
