Postpartum doulas are knowledgeable professionals who assist families during the critical period after the birth of their baby. They mother the mother and offer physical, emotional and
informational support to the family as well as practical help. Doulas are trained to know when things aren't progressing normally and to suggest appropriate resources for help.
It is best to contract with the doula prior to giving birth.
