You’ve spent 10 months (maybe longer) planning for the birth of your new baby. The nursery is perfection, you have a stroller that promises to change your life, the car seat is installed, and your doctor is waiting for “the call.”
Here’s our question for you. Have you prepared for your own recovery and transition into motherhood/parenthood? What does that look like, how will that play out, who will be there to support and care for you?
Perhaps you’ve heard of a postpartum doula…sometimes referred to as “Mary Poppins!"
A postpartum doula can be so many things and their role looks differently for each family. At The Birth Boutique, we pride ourselves on providing professional, sophisticated and personalized care for each and every family that we support.
Now, let’s get to the good stuff. What is the role of the postpartum doula? A postpartum doula comes day or night. A postpartum doula supports and guides the new mom and family as they sort through their questions / thoughts or concerns. A postpartum doula is trained to help care for the newborn and their needs (feeding, sleeping, diapering, bathing). A postpartum doula is trained to care for the recovering mother and their needs. A postpartum doula can help a family get “on their feet” around the house - meal prep, laundry, tidying up for all the new guests. In simple terms, she’s someone to talk to, someone to help you, someone to support you and someone to care for you and your family during a life changing time.
