Getting to know your newborn baby as you settle into life as your new post-birth self calls for lots and lots of support. This can come from family and friends, if they understand the true needs of new parents. However, many new parents these days are left without the nurturing support they require.
As a postpartum doula, I can join you for this part of your journey, bringing ease and validation to your experience. I understand that the fourth trimester is a tender time, when many people may be feeling vulnerable and unsure of themselves. You don't need to do this alone.
Some of the ways I can support you are:
Guidance on how to tune in to baby's cues and your intuition
Support with care of your infant (feeding, bathing, changing, etc.)
Breastfeeding support and guidance, if desired
Up to date, trauma-informed, evidence based care
Birth Trauma Healing and/or birth story listening
Support with helping other children through the transition
Light household duties
Organizing the home environment
Reiki energy healing to bring balance to your body, mind, and emotions
Foot reflexology for relaxation, balancing hormones, improving sleep, etc.
