Benefits

Postpartum doula care is beneficial for:

  • Minimizing chances of colic and postpartum depression
  • More opportunity to spend bonding with baby
  • Greater success with breastfeeding
  • Easier transition into parenthood
  • Having support when you don’t have family nearby
  • Having immediate results in your body and nervous system from the mother’s massage
  • Eating well and not having to think about it!

With all good intentions we tend to put our needs like sleep, nutrition, time to ourselves on the back burner because we are so committed to our babies. There is nothing wrong with loving our babies so much but realizing that receiving help whether it is a massage a nap or a meal is not a luxury nor is it selfish to accept.

It is important not to allow ourselves to become depleted physically or mentally and unable to give the care and love we want for our babies and families. Many health problems can arise after childbirth in women because they don’t give themselves time to heal.

Our bodies go through an incredible transition during pregnancy and the delivery of our babies.  We tend not to notice the impact childbirth has on the entire system. If left unchecked the resulting imbalance can create additional problems. Some of the ways it appears; digestion,  hormones, nervous system, and our pelvic and abdominal organ condition.
