Postpartum Doula

As a postpartum doula I will come into your home and "mother" you through the transitions of having a new baby.  


At Milwaukee Doulas we know that having a baby is a life changing event for everyone invloved, and we want to be there to help you along your journey to ease the transition.  We can help teach you newborn care and postpartum mom care, assist with breastfeeding, provide opportunities for you to rest or shower.  We can even help the rest of your family with the transitions, provide care of siblings, and much more.  


Services are individualized to your family's particular needs, and will be discussed during our interview and prenatal visit.  Don't worry if you don't know what you need...that can be decided once baby comes as well.
