The idea of having a labor doula support you during labor and birth is growing in popularity. But what is a postpartum doula? What does a postpartum doula do?
Traditionally women have been taken care of by other women in their tribe or family after giving birth.
Some cultures have a period of several weeks where a new mother is expected to do nothing but rest and recuperate with her new baby. During this time her mother, sister, cousins, aunts and other women in the community tend to her and the families’ needs.
