Postpartum: An Opportunity for Nourishment
Postpartum is the time after the arrival of new baby(ies). Many parents, both new and experienced, feel this time is precious and marvel at their new family, but of course baby(ies) come with demands that can be very overwhelming. Add on to that the huge fluctuations in hormones, body changes and lack of sleep, and parents can quickly become at risk for serious depletion.
The role of a postpartum doula is to educate families in ways that will help them navigate with the goal of nourishment and confidence in their own unique ways of parenting. We can work together in the following ways: creating a postpartum care plan, implementing practices for care of self, baby and family as a whole, creating organizational systems in your household to support nourishment, and all clients have access to my well-researched and personalized reference documents and referral network.
We are all the experts on our own bodies, babies and families. Personal autonomy is essential.
