Postpartum is unlike any other time in a woman’s life. It is every emotion and every physical sensation rolled into one event. It is a roller coaster of elation and isolation. A time of excitement and exhaustion. A time of reflection and a time of renewal. Postpartum is a gateway to the next chapter of life and the beginning of a new person who emerges as a mother and a caregiver.
Postpartum is often referred to as the fourth trimester. A continuation of the latent pregnancy. Most mothers feel very overwhelmed during the early weeks of postpartum and find it challenging to rest and recover. Often times mothers are processing the challenges of early motherhood and are looking for correct answers and guidance.
Research has shown the two major contributors to postpartum depression is fatigue and lack of support. Postpartum support is an invaluable service to a mother’s emotional and physical well-being. I am an experienced postpartum doula, mother and grandmother who can make this special time be what it should be for all mothers...restful.
