you don't have to do it alone

what is a postpartum doula?

Did you know that in MANY other cultures; mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and other community members take care of new moms for 20-60 days?!

 

That is 6-ish weeks of you laying in bed, cuddling your baby and having food brought to you while you rest up, heal and feed your baby!  Some cultures protect a 42 day sacred window, they say "42 days for 42 years."  Meaning how you rest and heal and nourish in the 42 days postpartum will affect your health for the next 42 years!  Whoa, have we got some learning to do!

In Canada, we live in a culture where everyone is busy, and we often attach our worthiness to our productivity. It is hard to rest and it is hard to ask for someone else to take care of us.

Maybe our family members work, or live across the country. 

Maybe we don't have a mother in our lives, or one we want in our space?

- Or maybe your partner will be returning to work shortly after your baby is born? 

- Or you've just adopted a baby, or had a baby by surrogate.

- Or you're the first of your friends to have a baby, so while they're happy to visit, they don't really know what you need. 

- Or your family isn't available.

 

- Or you have a 2 year old as well as your newborn at home and are wondering how you are you going to be able to rest, heal, nurse a new baby and take care of your toddler?!

 

 

 

 

Here's where we come in.  Hiring a postpartum doula can offer the support and comfort you need in those early weeks. With our experience in babies, healing, sleeping, and self-care we can help get you on track with routines for your home and family, so you can relax into motherhood. 

 

While we can't move in with you, our support includes giving you a break to shower, nap, or enjoy some time outside.  We'll sit with you while you feed your baby, get you a shower and ease your concerns.  We'll help you feel nurtured, fed and restored.  We really want your postpartum period to feel blissful!
