Postpartum Daytime Care
Becoming a parent is possibly the most contradictory experience that you may have. The impossible, beautiful, all-consuming love you have for your child does not necessarily offset the feelings of anxiety or loneliness that often go hand-in-hand with parenthood. Whether your post-partum experience isn't unfolding the way you expected, or you feel pretty settled within your new role--everyone needs a little bit of loving support during the post partum period. The reality is, we were never meant to do this alone. Every individual that has gone through the transition from pregnant to postpartum is entitled to some basic needs. I am here to meet these needs for you with care and consideration so that you can blossom into parenthood with confidence, resilience, and peace. Some of these needs include:
The sad truth is, in our society, these things are often pushed aside. We are suddenly expected to take care of our homes, our bodies, and our children, without any outside help. Oh, and lest we forget, we're also often expected to return to work after a tragically brief recovery/bonding period. This is where the need for a Postpartum Doula becomes invaluable. Our time spent together may look different day to day. Maybe one day you need help with meal prep, or the dishes. Another day, support might come in the form of laundry and assistance with feeding your new infant. Maybe you just need someone to care for your baby while you take a nap, or a long bath. Whatever it may look like, the feeling that is shared between the families I am supporting and myself, is incredible. I am overjoyed when I can help a family find comfortable home rhythm--I am here to bridge the gap, to ensure everyone's needs are met.
As a Perinatal Coach, I often include coaching sessions into our time together. We can work together on fostering acceptance, learning new skills, and trusting in the intuition that is given to all parents. One of my the anchors in our support is daily check-ins. This is where we sit down over a cup of tea or as you breastfeed/chest feed/bottle feed and we get to the nitty gritty. We create connection here, we find out what your converms are, what is working out well and what isn't. We dive into the many complex topics of becoming a parent and how to weigh all the many decisions against your own intuition. We establish goals together and see what you are needing most with our time together. These moments ground our relationship together and are truly the sweetest part of our time together - no parent should feel alone.
