"May you touch dragonflies & stars,
Dance with fairies & talk to the moon.
May you grow up with love & gracious hearts
& people who care.
Welcome to the world little one.
It's been waiting for you."
You have been preparing for this moment for a long time. You've chosen the perfect crib, and nursery décor as you dreamt about walking through your front door with your baby.
But what now?
What kind of blankets should I use? Is it better to have button or zipper sleepers? How can he possibly still be hungry? Am I feeding her enough? Does this baby's poop look right? Am I ever going to sleep again?!
No amount of parenting classes, books, or Google searches can prepare you for the vibrant personality that is this little person. It is an exciting, yet trying discovery experience.
Welcoming your postpartum and infant care doula into your home during those first few months is like having a personal best friend, an easy-to-read encyclopedia, and an individualized Siri rolled into one awesome human being.
A postpartum doula reaches beyond the expertise of your local neighbourhood night nurse or night nanny. Their extensive training and continuing education ensures your entire family is well taken care of as you all learn your new roles within the family.
We provide you with infant care, giving you the space to have an uninterrupted nap, head out for a yoga session, eat with two hands, or have a relaxing bath. When the adults of the household are rested and taken care of, they have the opportunity to grow into the best parents they can be. Extra sleep for you means you will have more patience with your newborn.
Learn how to wrap the perfect swaddle, recognize sleep and hunger cues from day one, and build a strong bond as a new family. An Edmonton doula's job isn't complete until you are a powerhouse of information on your newborn.
Take a moment to imagine coming home and having your doula there for you. Imagine surrendering to a nap and waking up feeling refreshed, with the smell of your favorite dessert in the air. The house feels calm and relaxed as you come out to find your baby sleeping peacefully.
