Postpartum Doula Services
providing a nurturing start for families
Diaper Lab is proud to present Wonderful Welcome. Our postpartum doulas are available to ease the transition for families welcoming new babies into their homes. A postpartum doula is trained to provide infant and new family care for the first few days, weeks, and months, including evidence-based assistance with general newborn care including feeding, bathing, and general house care (think laundry! dishes!).
Doulas also help parents accomplish their own self-care by holding and caring for baby so the parents can shower, nap, or have a moment to themselves - or all three! We provide both emotional and physical support which research has shown to increase bonding, improve post-birth recovery, and reduce the incidence and severity of postpartum depression.
Our doulas, Crystal, Jen, and Salina, have a combined eight children, more than four decades of motherhood experience, and are trained through CAPPA, one of the oldest and most respected organization of perinatal professionals in the world. Wonderful Welcome doulas also have sought out and received additional training in lactation education as well as maternal mental health (via the 2020 Mom Project from Postpartum Support International), and stay up to date on current research and best practice guidelines.
Postpartum doula service is ideally arranged while you are still pregnant so it can begin as soon as you need, but it also can be initiated after baby arrives. To get started, just get in touch: contact us (email firstname.lastname@example.org) today to schedule a meet and greet! You can also connect with us on social media; Wonderful Welcome has both a Facebook and Instagram presence.
