NBDA Postpartum Doulas are professionally trained individuals who specialize in immediate postpartum support, from 0-3 months, for recently birthed families.

They are experts trained to help identify and offer support around postpartum issues such as breastfeeding, sleep support, nutrition, mental and emotional wellness, physical healing and more. Postpartum Doulas offer varying levels of support depending on the needs of the family.

The Fourth Trimester is the most underestimated time of pregnancy. The NBDA equips trainees with knowledge of the importance of timing around holistically healing the body from a realistic approach.
