The Benefits of a Postpartum Doula 

Postpartum is hard. Having a new baby is hard. Trying to figure it all out while staying your fabulous self is hard

Finding help though this difficult process? That’s easy. 

When you need help during this season of life, an infant and family care (IFC) doula can be there to help you, your family and your new baby. They can help ease the transition of bringing home a baby, or help with a sleep regression, teething or becoming an older sibling. 

Postpartum doulas are trained to be helpers in these tasks. They know how to prepare bottles, assist with basic breastfeeding, provide infant care and help with sleep routines. They are also knowledgeable in normal postpartum recovery, and can help you with processing your birth, ensuring you’re healing and providing support as you walk the journey of the postpartum period.  

A postpartum doula’s job is to be there for you. That may mean cooking meals, cleaning up the kitchen, watching your older child so you can have time with the baby, or watching the baby so you can have some alone time (yes: ALONE TIME).  

Hiring a postpartum doula is one way to build your own community, but with trained professionals who are coming to help, not just hold the baby and eat your snacks!  

At Tender Beginnings, we offer payment plans and discounts for booking a full month of services. We work with families across all of Dayton and Cincinnati every day to build confidence, provide support and get you on a path to a successful postpartum period.
