Tranquil Frequently Asked Questions
Why would I need help?
Most people don’t have relatives living close by to lend a helping hand. Family relationships may also be uncomfortable for the new parents. New dads are going to be tired too and need help.
What does a postpartum doula do?
The postpartum doula supports the new family with encouragement, information, infant care, light housekeeping, meal preparation, running errands, sibling care, a shoulder to lean on, or a warm cup of tea. She never gives medical advice.
How many hours does she provide?
The postpartum doula will work with you to assess your needs. Average time is 3-4 hours, 2-3 days a week.
What about cost?
Hourly rates will vary according to experience and your needs.
