Postpartum Doula Support
As the pregnancy and birth chapter of your book of life is completed, a new chapter is ready to begin.
With your baby as the lead character and you in the support role, one must ask, who will support you??
Your partner? Absolutely!
Family and friends? Of course!
The will come and meet your baby! They will offer a meal! They may even fold a load of laundry!
But, do they understand the nuances of the delicate postpartum period? The emotionality of the experience? Would they recognize what is "normal" during your recovery and what is beyond the scope of "normal"?? Are they current on the research regarding infant feeding? Sleep? Or other relevant newborn care topics?
Friends and family bring their own experiences to you. Their own biases, and sometimes...even their own judgments.
