We have had many intended parents who have reported to Proud Fertility that having a postpartum doula has helped in addressing postpartum depression concerns. Yes, even men (both gay and heterosexual intended fathers) can experience postpartum depression!
Proud Fertility wants our Intended Parents to have as much support as possible throughout their surrogacy journey. That’s why we have built a network of Postpartum Doulas to ensure you have the care you need when bringing your baby home.
Postpartum Doulas provide individualized support to your family after your baby is born.
You won’t be the first new parent to leave the hospital with your newborn completely flabbergasted that this tiny person is now in your charge.You just might find yourself wondering how the hospital staff could responsibly allow you to leave with your baby! You don’t know the first thing about taking care of a baby. How do you bath a baby and how often? What are you supposed to do with that belly button? How will you know the baby has had enough to eat? Is it normal for newborns to sleep so much (or so little?). It’s all a little scary!
A Postpartum Doula is your ultimate guide to caring for your newborn!
And if that wasn’t enough…
You’re going to be very busy caring for your baby and adjusting to parenthood but your postpartum doula won’t let anything slide. The Doula can keep up on laundry, prepare snacks and meals and even manage light housekeeping duties!
