The early days with a newborn. Everyone focuses on the new baby, but what about the new mum? I believe every mother deserves as much support as humanly possible at a time when her body is recovering from birth while simultaneously trying to cope with the constant demands of a newborn. However, today's lifestyle doesn't allow for the intensive support needed for the emotional, mental and physical wellbeing of the mother.
My aim, as a postpartum doula, is to support you in the early days with your new babe(s). To walk alongside you and help you mother however you choose. The beginning of your journey into motherhood is the steepest learning curve that no amount of reading or advice from others will ever prepare you for.
A service to support not just first-time mums, but all mums in the postpartum period. Whether it's your first or fourth bub, each journey is as unique as your baby and you are a different mother to each child based on your experiences and the circumstances. As you change and grow, so too do your needs.
I've been there. I'm still there right now. Learning. Growing. Every single day. Right alongside my boys.
