Bringing a new baby into the family is a once in a lifetime event. You and your baby deserve a happy, healthy transition. Get the doula care you need to make it the best it can be. Getting the right start can be truly priceless.
Quality postpartum support can have a huge effect on a mother’s physical recovery, emotional state, and success with breastfeeding.
Sleep makes a huge difference not just in quality of life, but in your immune response and your body’s ability to heal.
As doulas, we have seen how postpartum care and support for the whole family lowers the rate of postpartum depression, raises the success rate of breastfeeding, helps couples feel more connected, and allows parents to feel more confident in their early parenting skills and to trust themselves in their parenting moving forward.
One of the major obstacles to the best transition is sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation can sabotage the families’ adjustment to a new baby.
According to the National Institute of Health, during the night, while you sleep, your brain grows and heals. This is important to helping to realign hormone levels, which can affect both your mood and general health.
Many new parents do not even not even realize that they have become sleep deficient. They may notice that they are tired, but not recognize how much it affects their functioning. Lack of sleep impacts your memory, and new parents often refer to the first few weeks of having a new baby as a blur.
Having help to get enough rest can allow you to enjoy and remember this precious time with your baby.
Our families schedule care for as little as a few nights or for many months. We specialize in nighttime postpartum care.
The ideal time to schedule care is before the new baby joins the household. When you schedule early, we can be sure to have our specially trained doulas on hand for you.
