What is a Birth Doula

A Birth Doula is a professional trained in childbirth who provides continuous emotional, physical, and educational support to an individual who is expecting, is experiencing labor, or has recently given birth. Their purpose is to help birthing people have a safe, memorable, and empowering birthing experience.

Postpartum Healing

The first 40 days after birth is considered the Fourth Trimester. In East Asian Medicine it is called Zuo Wei Zi and is a time for radical rest for the birthing person while they get to know their new loved one. This is a time to nourish the body and the soul with comforting foods like broths and soups, and allowing the healing of birth to happen in a natural state. Dr. Cooper provides in-home care during this postpartum time and provides care for the birthing person to include:

  • Belly Binding
