Why is postpartum support a must?

After the baby is born new mothers are left alone too often and too early in our modern world. They haven’t even got the chance to rest and heal after giving birth and all the responsibility of parenthood comes crashing into their world. If it is the first baby, there are many insecurities in how to handle each situation.

The confidence of the new parents is being built continouosly and the feeling of competence is very fragile.

 

 Therefore it is very important that the person who helps the new parents in this period is empathic who doesn’t want to know better what the baby needs than his/her parents but if they have questions or concerns, she can answer them based on up-to-date information. As a postpartum doula this is what I provide. I am beside you, listen to you if you need it and I can also do tiny household duties to make you feel more comfortable: wash the dishes or do laundry. However, if the whole flat needs cleaning, you need to hire a separate helper for that.
