Postpartum Prep - Easing Your Transition into Parenthood
This class is created and delivered by Cristina Evans.
As a birth doula and mother, I have seen that there is often a disconnection of care after the birth of our children. We have our babies and are sent home with a "good luck" and recommendation to sleep when the baby sleeps, but we need more than that. This time is sacred and even if you’ve had other children, you will never get this time with this child again. Preparing for the physical and emotional changes that occur following birth can be helpful to ease this transition. During our time together, we will address your needs (physical & emotional), the needs of your baby, and how you can feel confident in asking for and accepting help. This is an opportunity to discuss desires, hopes, and expectations along with ways to integrate them into your postpartum plan. This is wonderful option for all types of families regardless of the type of birth you are aiming for, birthing location, or feeding choice.
