Postpartum is where the party really begins… even though it’s frequently under prepared for. The dream is days full of joy, tiny baby toes, and snuggles. It’s easy to overlook the fact that your body just went through a major transformation and needs time to heal. Your Postpartum Doula will help to create a smooth transition from pregnancy to parenting with focus on your postpartum healing, bonding with, and caring for your baby, and other support when needed.
Honoring the postpartum period is so important. Birth is such a “giving” experience. You have to give everything you have in you in order to give birth. In US culture we rush women to have their baby and then rush them to be professional mothers as if their bodies didn’t just birth a whole human being. We know from years of observing of other cultures (that have fewer postpartum maternal health complications) that the days post birth are best spent healing, bonding with baby, and receiving care. We will do everything we can to help create an environment where you can receive the support you need to allow healing and bonding to flourish.
