Postpartum and infant care

Postpartum and

Infant Care

Many of us plan for our birth experience, but not so much for what happens afterwards when we bring our little one home for the first time. The postpartum period can be a challenging adjustment, but it can also be the most fulfilling few months of a new parent’s life. Postpartum doulas help you make decisions by providing nonjudgmental support and evidence-based information in the following areas:

·        Feeding your baby

·        Soothing your baby to sleep

·        Diaper changes

·        How to swaddle effectively

·        Sibling support

·        Mood disorder referrals

·        Time for yourself!

When it seems like everyone you speak to has a different opinion on how you should raise your child, a postpartum doula can present you with options so that you can make an informed decision and decide for yourself. Raising a child really does take a village and babies don’t come with manuals (what’s up with that?!). A little help from a postpartum doula will start new life on the right foot.
