What is a Postpartum Doula?

Doula is a Greek word coming from the word dou meaning two and literally means "woman care giver to another woman".  Today a postpartum doula comes along side a new family and helps them adjust to life with a new baby.   They offer nurturing care and support in the client's home, usually beginning immediately after the baby is born until about 3-4 months postpartum.
