The Role of a Doula in Postpartum Care

A doula is a trained professional who provides physical, emotional, and informational support to individuals and families during the postpartum period. Their aim is to ensure that the transition to parenthood is as smooth as possible by helping new parents adjust to the challenges and joys that come after childbirth.
