POSTPARTUM SUPPORT

All the focus and excitement so far has been directed at your birth and bringing your new baby home.  But what about the birth of you, as new mother?

In traditional cultures, new mothers would have a support network of trusted and experienced women to nurture and care for them in the first sacred month after birthing their babies.  This would often include a ‘confinement' period.  This was a time for quiet healing, peace and nourishment. 

Despite the need for new mothers to receive this nourishment and care, our society pressures new mothers to recover quickly and move back out into the world of the everyday after a day or two.

 

Imagine feeling more nurtured and supported during your first days and weeks as new mother.  Imagine having a system of support that would accommodate this special period of rest and recuperation.  

 

Or, do you know someone who you feel would need extra support in this special time in a new mother’s life? 

 

This is where a Postnatal Doula steps in.
