Recovery Care: The First 2-4 Weeks

Day and Night Support


 The Doula House Postpartum Recovery Care provides the support of a Newborn Care Specialist and Postpartum Doula. During the first 2-4 weeks after birth, we provide day and night support so that you can adjust to  your new role as parent. 

 Our goals during your Recovery Care is to help set in motion faster  healing, better bonding, and a positive start for your family. 

Key stone to her entire first year postpartum


 The care, rest, and healing a mother receives in the first few weeks after birth is the keystone to her entire first year postpartum. If a  mother is able to rest well at night, eat well and relax during the day,  and receive the guidance and support of an exceptionally trained  newborn care specialist; this can mean the difference between a thriving  first year, and a surviving first year. 

We will take on the new load that your newborn brings


 During the day we provide guidance, care, and newborn support. We take care of baby laundry, dishes, and care. We are there to allow you the space to sleep and rest,  in addition to providing support for breastfeeding, recovery, and  newborn sleep. During the night, we lovingly care for your baby so that  you can deeply sleep in-between feedings. A lack of rest is the number  one thing that will slow down postpartum recovery.

A well rested parent is more loving, attentive, and patient

We work with you to create an optimal plan for your family.

 When asked how they viewed their postpartum, our well rested parents  expressed a sense of accomplishment and a positive outlook on the next  few weeks and months of becoming a parent. When working with parents who  went the first few weeks or months without support, we are often met  with parents who are struggling, sleep deprived, and overwhelmed. 

 We take into consideration work schedules, family support, and special circumstances.
