There is an importance in slowing down in the immediate postpartum period. In that slowing down you give yourself, and family, the time to adjust and integrate the physical and emotional changes that occur during this major transitional period. As the weeks pass by, you’ll begin to learn a new pace of life with your newborn – slowly but surely finding your families rhythm.
As your Postpartum Doula, I will ensure that in that the new mother is taking the time to rest, nourish and heal their body. That they have the space to bond and learn all about their newborn – in return gaining the confidence that they need to mother in their own way. I hope to create an environment where not only the baby is nurtured and cared for, but so is the new mother and family.

Have you ever noticed how quickly your little one calms down when you pick them up and snuggle them close? The power to touch is one of the most influential ways babies interact with the world around them. Your baby depends on your touch for a sense of comfort and stability, which is why baby massage can be so effective.
