Doulas provide support for the mother so you can get to know your baby (or babies) once you bring them home from the hospital. Although most doulas are trained in infant CPR, they are not medical support. Services vary from company to company, but can include: baby care, breastfeeding support, sibling care and household help, including light housekeeping, laundry, meals, errands and grocery shopping.
