Give the Gift of Reassurance
New motherhood brings with it a host of questions:
- How do I know if my breastfeeding baby is getting enough milk?
- It still hurts, how can I breastfeed comfortably?
- How do I know if I need to supplement?
- How can I tell if baby is growing well?
- What can I do to get baby into a good sleeping pattern?
- How can I get more sleep?
- The house is falling apart! How can I stay on top of the house, AND still get the rest I need to recover?
- I just don’t feel like myself, when will I feel normal again?
These questions are common in new families. These are the issues that we specialize in! Your Postpartum Doula can help you get back in control of life. She will reassure you with completely non-judgmental support. She will nurture you as you nurture your baby. She will provide the latest information to help you get the answers you need.
She will help with feeding challenges, she can help everyone get more sleep, and she will help get the house comfortable.
While she’s doing those things, she can tell if you’re not feeling like yourself; and she has lots of tools available to help you feel like yourself again.
In times past, extended family members could come to a new family’s home and stay for a few months to help everyone get into a good, sustainable routine.
But in our industrialized society, families are often spread out over great distances. And many family members or friends want to help, but don’t have the ability or tools to help.
Many grandparents are living very healthy and active lifestyles, they’ve done the sleepless nights before, they know how much it wears new parents down.
They are happy to hire a Postpartum Doula to help their grandbaby’s new parents for several months, or as long as you choose.
So if there is a new mom in your life, consider giving her the immeasurable gift of reassurance.
Reassurance that she’s feeding her baby well.
Reassurance that she’s recovering in a healthy manner.
Reassurance that everyone is getting good, healthy, sleep.
Reassurance that everyone in the family is having their needs met.
