A Postpartum doula provides families educational information and support on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from childbirth, infant soothing, and coping skills on navigating as new parents. Some Postpartum doulas may also help with light housework, fix a meal and help incorporate an older child into this new experience.
Who's It For?
Families that benefit most from hiring an postpartum doula are first-time parents expecting singletons and/or multiples, families with heavy or atypical work schedules, moms recovering from a c-section, and same-sex parents, those without family support nearby, or parents who simply need a good night’s rest and may suffer from depression!

Schedule & Rates
Postpartum doulas typically work either 5-10 hours during the day or overnight. Terms vary in length between 2-6 weeks; on average families hire a postpartum doula for approximately 16 weeks (or until their baby is successfully sleeping through the night). Depending on experience, qualifications, and number of children (singleton or multiples) rates for postpartum doula can range from $30-$60/hr.
Happy Baby recommends booking your Postpartum Doula 2-3 months prior to your due date (or as early as possible) as highly experienced candidates book up quickly!
