Postnatal Doula Consultation
Many mothers find that the early days after they have a baby can be more difficult than they expected. Maybe your baby is not sleeping as much as you had hoped, maybe you are not sleeping as much as you had hoped, maybe your baby is not feeding as efficiently, maybe breastfeeding is harder than you thought. Maybe you have questions about managing your other children? Maybe your mood is not all that you hoped it would be. Perhaps you want some information on baby wearing or baby routines? I can help with all of these things. In particular as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant I can help you with breastfeeding support and routines.
