Frankly, I was disappointed in the career description, but I was thankful that the book made it so clear that I realized that I was looking at the wrong field, as I wanted more hands-on, specialized skills than a postpartum doula can offer. What postpartum doulas seem to specialize in is emotional support and keeping on top of the pulse of family dynamics, as long as the situation doesn't get too deep as in postpartum depression, in which case of course, the postpartum doula has to refer out to other resources.
For those like me who would like a more hands on, specialized training or career, I suggest lactation consulting or newborn care specialist. These professionals can be called in by the postpartum doula to assist with trouble-shooting lactation or newborn care challenges. I personally chose to do newborn care specialist and thoroughly enjoyed my detailed training I received with the Gentle Ventures Newborn Care Specialist course.
