Is my baby getting enough food? How often should my baby pee and poop? Should I wake my baby to eat? Does this cord stump look okay? When will I have time to clean my house? When will I find time to feed myself? Or even take a shower?! I only sleep in 2-3 hour increments and I’m so tired!! Am I doing it right?
The postpartum period can be overwhelming for a new family. It is one of the most underprepared for times in a new family’s life. And the mom can easily be overlooked by this new cute face. But mom still matters and still needs to be taken care of!
Postpartum doulas can ease moms into motherhood by helping them figure out your newest addition(s). Newborn care, breastfeeding, pumping, baby sleep cycles, post birth care (for mom) can be eased with having a doula present. Look to see if this is the right thing for you.
