Doulas are Not Self Indulgent

In this episode of the Be Her Village podcast, Kaitlin McGreyes, founder of Be Her Village talks with Mandy Major, founder of Major Care Doulas and MyFourth App— a virtual postpartum doula service where new parents have access to postpartum doula support anytime, anywhere.

They chat about how important it is for the new mom to be supported and cared for— for the wellbeing of the new mom as well as the new baby. Having a postpartum doula gives a new mom the help she needs without the weight of a relationship attached to it. And it also keeps her from googling every question she has.

Doulas aren’t self indulgent, they’re an important part of recovery for birthing people.

If you want a postpartum doula in your pocket, check out MyFourth App by Major Care Doulas. Find her on instagram @majorcaredoulas and @doulamandy
