Prepare now for bringing your baby home; it’s the launching pad for successful breastfeeding
Many surveys have shown that hands-on support from an experienced postpartum doula particularly for breastfeeding and understanding normal newborn behavior can provide a solid basis during the adjustment to parenthood. Preparation for Breastfeeding Your Newborn
- Breastfeeding is learned for the mom and has come naturally to mothers as they saw and discovered from their own mothers, sisters, aunts, and friends. As society changed, and as more and more the caring for babies became largely hidden some expectant parents are likely never to have even seen a child nursed or changed a diaper or soothed a newborn.
Your postpartum doula provides easy solutions to common problems.
- A great deal of misinformation remains in our culture about the first week’s home with your newborn and breastfeeding, new parents find that, even after going to prenatal classes, they are not ready for the reality of caring for a child.
This is where your postpartum doula comes in, there for you, reassuring as you learn nursing and learning your baby’s basic needs.
