Today Soraya will be talking to us about the options for postpartum support in your neighborhood. As a society, we have lost our “villages” where we would receive the care and guidance from the matriarchs who were there to help us heal after birth. Postpartum doulas have grown in popularity as the emphasis has started to encompass not only birth, but that transformative period after birth as the family grows and strives to find their new normal. Postpartum doulas serve families in so many ways and provide the individualized care and attention that is so critical in the days, weeks and months following birth.
