Are you due with, or recently had, your first baby? I can help you avoid the common complications that occur when people try to go it alone. Allow me to help relieve stress, help you relax, recover and enjoy your baby.
WHY SHOULD I WORK WITH A POSTPARTUM DOULA?
A postpartum doula reduces stress by tackling daily chores (meal prep, laundry, dishes) and showing you shortcuts, so you can avoid exhaustion. (Most Postpartum Complications have a root cause of exhaustion/sleep deprivation. Once you get to that point it can be very difficult to recover. Let's nip it in the bud.)
A postpartum doula helps with feelings of being overwhelmed by helping you create a plan that meets your needs with the resources available to you. (Baby gets the best care when parents are rested and healthy.)
If you choose to breastfeed, a postpartum doula can help you recognize if your baby is getting enough, avoid engorgement and help troubleshoot supply issues. If you choose to bottle feed, a postpartum doula will help you find the best formula and streamline the feeding process.
A postpartum doula can help you understand your baby and feel confident in your ability to make the best choices for them, and you.
A postpartum doula supports you in whatever the day brings. Sometimes that looks like showing you how to bathe or soothe your baby... Sometimes, it's bringing you food... Sometimes, it's taking care of baby while you sleep or shower.
