What is a Postpartum Doula?
A postpartum doula is a nonmedical support person who is trained to provide education and support to new families and babies. Postpartum doulas can provide basic infant care instruction, light housework, light meal preparation, and help ensure that the mother is able to rest and heal adequately. Our postpartum doulas are available to help anywhere within our service area (Richland and Lexington counties).

Our Basic Postpartum Package is great for families who need a couple of days of support and instruction after the baby arrives. Our Basic Postpartum Package includes one prenatal visit and postpartum support for 12 hours. Hours must be used over two to three different days. Additional postpartum hours can be purchased A la cart if longer support is desired.
