Daytime doulas generally work 3-5 hours a day, 2-5 days a week. Your doula will help the family adjust to having a new baby in the house. She is a specialist in newborn care.

The time when baby is first brought home is a time of adjustment for the family.  Whether first baby or not, it is a time of getting to know each other.
