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...
Nine Things To Do When You’re Nine Months Pregnant

Nine Things To Do When You’re Nine Months Pregnant

The ninth month of pregnancy can feel like it lasts a year, and in the middle of summer, can feel even longer! Looking for ways to pass the time?  We’ve compiled a list of nine things you could do in summer here in Winston-Salem.   1. Visit Old Salem– Old Salem Museum and Gardens is a restored Moravian community, and while an admission ticket is needed to venture inside many of the houses and museums, you can wander around the beautiful old brick roads anytime. Visit the bakery, enjoy a picnic on the grassy knoll outside Salem College, and maybe even stop to take a pregnancy picture with the giant coffee pot at the north end of this historic district! 900 Old Salem Rd, Winston-Salem, NC 27101   2. Get a haircut– We recently had a postpartum client tell us how much she wished she gotten a haircut before she had her baby! Time is often at a premium after baby comes. Sit in the air conditioning and let your stylist give you the perfect pregnancy do! 3.  See a baseball game–Take you and your belly baby out to the ballgame!  Cheer on our local minor league baseball team, the Winston-Salem Dash!  We are fortunate to have a lovely ballpark in downtown Winston-Salem.  Satisfy your pregnancy cravings with a ballpark dinner, and sit back and enjoy the game.  Check the calendar to see which dates have after game fireworks for an extra special treat!  A source at the Dash says seats near the third base line tend to be shadiest.  951 Ballpark Way, Winston-Salem, NC 27101 4. Indulge at...
