A Day In Your Life With A Postpartum Doula

A Day In Your Life With A Postpartum Doula

It’s your partner’s first day back at work.  Your babe is a mere few days old, tiny, adorable, sweet in every way.  And exhausting in every way!  Never fear, your postpartum doula is here! 9:00  We text you or knock very softly to let you know we’ve arrived.  (we know better than to ring that doorbell if Baby might be sleeping!)  You open the door, we hug, and begin our day! 9:30  You are relaxing, eating the breakfast we’ve just prepared for you, sipping coffee or your favorite tea.  While you eat, we hold your baby, and give you some much deserved me time. 10:00  You slip away for a long bath or shower, work on all those thank you cards that need to go out, and catch up on emails and phone calls.  We change your baby’s diaper, and help get her down for a nap.  While she naps, we wash all your breast pump pieces, load the dishwasher, neaten the kitchen and prepare snacks for you to eat through out the day.  (cup up fruit and veggies in containers in the fridge are a great way to grab a healthy snack!)  We keep an eye on your baby to make sure she is sleeping comfortably. 11:30  You settle in to your favorite spot on the couch or in the rocking chair, we hand you your Boppy pillow and help you get adjusted, and bring Baby to you to nurse or bottle feed.  We can help you with some breastfeeding challenges, and can quickly refer you to certified lactation consultants if you need them!  We turn the TV...
