What New Moms Say About Tender Times

We moved to Bergen County only two weeks before our first child was born. I knew that a move, a baby, and being inundated with advice from family on what the "right" thing to do was going to be overwhelming and decided to look for a postpartum doula. I felt comfortable with Elaine from our first meeting. She helped me with breastfeeding and answered all my million questions. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her! I would recommend Elaine to anyone considering hiring a postpartum doula. She is incredibly knowledgeable, caring and easy to talk to. - Manisha, Ridgewood, NJ

What is a Postpartum Doula?

A postpartum or post-pregnancy doula* (do-la) is an experienced care provider who helps you and your family in the exciting, but often hectic days after your baby is born. A post-pregnancy doula provides in-home, non-medical support, such as help with learning breastfeeding and newborn care.

*"Postpartum" means after birth. Postpartum support is NOT only for those who suffer postpartum depression. In fact, adequate postpartum or post-pregnancy support has been scientifically shown to lessen the incidence of depression in new mothers.
