Navigating the 'new normal' of motherhood with virtual postpartum doula services

Hey there, new mama! Are you in need of some support after your baby is born, but not interested in having someone physically present in your home? Virtual postpartum doula support might be the perfect solution for you.

Postpartum doulas provide support in the first weeks after birth. They provide informational support about feeding and caring for the baby. As a postpartum doula and certified breastfeeding specialist, I am able to provide non-judgmental support, a listening ear, and a sounding board to new parents as they navigate the challenges of parenthood. I can offer support and guidance on a variety of topics related to caring for a newborn, including soothing techniques, sleep routines, breastfeeding and pumping. I am also able to troubleshoot pumping issues, teach paced-feeding methods to assist with transitioning from bottle to breast, and help mothers size themselves for their flange to make the process of pumping comfortable and more efficient.

Through phone calls, texts and video chats, I can provide the same level of support as an in-person doula, but without invading your space or disrupting your home life. I am here to support you as you adjust to your new role and can also refer you to other professionals or resources if needed.

Virtual postpartum doula support is a great option for new parents who want the support of a doula but prefer not to have someone physically present in their home. If you're interested in this type of support, I encourage you to reach out and schedule a consultation. With the right support, you'll be well-equipped to navigate the challenges of parenthood with confidence.

World Doula Week

Today kicks off World Doula Week , a celebration of doulas all around the world. This year's theme is "Doulas make a difference" and I'm here for it! Over the last seven years, I've been blessed to work with more than seventy families. Many stick out in my mind and have left a special imprint on my heart. I truly hope I've made a difference, as I continuously strive to leave memorable impressions on the families I care for.  What is a Doula? A doula, translated from the original Greek language, means "a woman who serves". She serves families in the birth and postpartum period by providing evidence-based information, resources, emotional and physical support, while "mothering the mother" as she transitions into motherhood.  In 1973 American Medical Anthropologist, Dana Raphael coined the word "doula" as a woman outside the family who tenders the new mother, so she can successfully breastfeed.

Tips for helping your baby sleep longer stretches at night

Photographer :  Garrett Jackson Are you feeling exhausted from being awakened by your little one every few hours each night? It's completely normal for babies to wake up frequently during the night, but as a parent, it can be tiring. If you're struggling to get your baby to sleep through the night, you're not alone! Here are a few tips that might help: Establish a bedtime routine: One of the most important things you can do to help your baby sleep longer stretches is to establish a consistent bedtime routine. This can include feeding, calming activities, and winding down for sleep.

Swaddle your baby: Swaddling can be a great way to help your baby sleep more soundly.

The Importance of Prenatal Breastfeeding Education

Why should expectant mothers take the time to learn about breastfeeding during pregnancy? "All of the women in my family were successful at breastfeeding.. So, it should come natural for me too.. If I have a question I'll just ask one of my aunts or my mom."  These are just a few of the thoughts that entered my mind early on in m y pregnancy with my daughter and I have a feeling I'm not alone. In fact, I know I'm not. I don't think it ever occurred to me to take a breastfeeding class and sadly I've heard similar statements from my peers. I thought because my mother breastfed me for thirteen months and my siblings for nearly a year, it would be no different for my baby and me. Boy, was I mistaken. Even though I fell in love with nursing my daughter and she latched on eagerly, I was still met with challenges. I am so fortunate to have had the encouragement of my family, but unfortunately the breastfeeding knowledge that my providers held was minimal. Ending
