Triangle Mothercare Postpartum Doulas
A Postpartum Doula is trained to provide support and education for the mother, father, baby and siblings during the first three months of the baby’s new life with them. (There are also ‘birth doulas’ who attend the laboring mother during delivery.) She is trained to recognize special needs and refer to appropriate resources. She is a teacher and source of information as she helps care for the new baby and nurture the family. She offers evidence-based information on newborn care, infant feeding (breast or bottle), mother care and coping skills for new parents. She helps with some of the tasks necessary to keep the family running smoothly during this busy time. She has been trained by Triangle Mothercare and/or another professional Postpartum Doula training organization and has achieved (or may be working towards) certification by one of those professional organizations. Her expertise and non-judgmental support create a calm experience for the new family while encouraging them to develop their own parenting style.

A Triangle Mothercare Postpartum Doula and Night Nurse also provides overnight care for the newborn while new parents get the sleep and rest they need to recover and be able to care for their families during the day. She is professionally trained in all areas of newborn care. She is there to educate the parents on techniques as needed, including bottle-feeding, swaddling, self-soothing and feeding recommendations. She is specially prepared to minimize the stress of the new family, and offers gentle and confident support for the mother and loving care for the baby. She has fulfilled all requirements and testing, plus an extended period of mentoring while working with newborn babies.
