WHY CHOOSE A POSTPARTUM-DOULA?
1. Restoring your wellbeing, stamina & health
Mother-centered care means that you can have a retreat time where your body and soul can replenish and heal, fill up the resources... In some cultues it is said that every day that you give yourself "off" and being cared for at home, will give you a year with more health and strength in your later life.
2. Time for being with your baby & growing into the new family
.... whether it is your first or your fourth child ;) And your partner can be freed up to have some time for himself while I am there and then spend quality time with a more rested you (and baby), enjoying more of your baby-honeymoon...
3. Support like in a village (and extra to partner, family & friends)
Your partner will be there for you as much as he or she can and your family and friends as well - but this can have boundaries in energy, time, knowledge and closeness. So in older traditions there was the aunt and the niece that came over to live in the household with the new mum and the newborn and they took over the house, the kitchen and the rules... Nowadays we mostly prefer a freer, modern version of that :)
