At Carolina Birth and Wellness, our postpartum doulas support our clients in however they choose to feed their babies. Using formula to feed babies is a great way to ensure babies are getting enough to eat and to know exactly what they are eating.
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.
One of the biggest concerns for all new parents, well actually all parents in general, is how do you know if your child is getting enough to eat?
Whether you are (fast) approaching your estimated date of delivery, have a newborn, or just have little kids, the possibility of Hurricane Frances hitting Raleigh in the next few days is a bit scary!
The “Golden Hour” has become very popular to discuss within the birthing community in the past few years.
We approach each client at each postpartum doula shift with a clean slate. We do not have any opinions about what should, or what should not be done, by the parent, or what should or should not be expected from the baby. We do, however, always start the shift with the same simple question: What is your goal for today?
All postpartum doula clients, whether you just need one overnight, or a full 40 hours a week of support, are offered a postpartum planning appointment to allow both doulas and your family to share expectations, goals, and concerns about having a newborn.
