Our goal of these prenatal appointments is to supplement the information you are receiving in the your childbirth education classes and private prenatal appointments with your doulas, while also building your community.
So often on Facebook and other social media sites, our birth doulas and postpartum doulas read questions from concerned pregnant folks or new parents asking various questions about if others experienced a similar issue during pregnancy, birth, and/or parenthood. However, we are reframing that question to: Is it common and is it also normal?
These five protective factors can help protect, build, strengthen and promote healthy parent and child development.
Planning for a new baby is full of unknowns. Will your baby sleep? Will you sleep? Will your baby eat? Will you feel like yourself? And so many more questions that you won’t know the answer to until your baby arrives.
Whether you are going back to work at 6 weeks, 6 months, or even a year, there are always some adjustments. Parents that continue to breastfeed while working certainly face a few different obstacles, but we believe if you develop a sustainable plan prior to a big event, you are more likely to succeed.
The Doulas at Carolina Birth and Wellness provide continuous support for families in Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Durham, and surrounding areas during pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.
