Postpartum Doula Care

A postpartum doula is there for a family during the first days and weeks with a new baby. At Knoxville Birth & Baby, postpartum care is customized to meet your needs. Services include newborn care and information, knowledge of comfort and healing measures, light housework, food preparation, sibling care, skilled breastfeeding or bottle feeding assistance, and emotional support to ease the transition into parenthood or a new chapter of your family’s life.
