All families deserve to be nurtured, supported and empowered.
At InThisTogether we are passionate about education, support and confidence. Welcoming a new baby is such an exciting time. It is also a time of great transition. The needs of a new baby can leave moms feeling stretched thin, dads feeling helpless and siblings out of sorts. Often times extended family members want to help but aren't sure how. Postpartum doulas are how!
The postpartum doula is there to nurture the family by providing non-judgmental, non-medical support and companionship, assist with newborn care and sibling adjustment, light meal preparation and household organization. The doula offers evidence based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from childbirth and other issues related to the postpartum period and can make referrals when necessary.
