MothersCare Doulas Services are specially trained to provide breastfeeding support.
Our doulas are trained extensively in breastfeeding issues. They can help a mom with problems that may arise as well as tips on feeding schedules and pumping, if needed. The doula can refer mom to resources for help with nursing problems that may be beyond her expertise. Our doulas are well-trained by Breastfeeding Resources*, a group started by Dr. Tina Smillie, MD, based in Stratford, CT who began her practice in “breastfeeding medicine” in response to the lack of current information and support for breastfeeding moms in CT.
