Postnatal Doula

Once you have given birth, more attention goes to the baby and less to you. However as a new mom, you need to be mothered yourself and I like to do this as a postnatal doula by offering you emotional support/counselling, postnatal yoga, massage and herbal steam. I also introduce you to baby massage, baby yoga and baby swimming.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A POSTNATAL SESSION?

During the intake session we explore your birthing experience. Was the birth and passage into motherhood an ec-static or a traumatic experience? Whatever it might be, it is stored in your subconscious mind and defines the relation with your baby, your partner and ultimately with yourself. You have given birth to a baby while you gave birth to yourself as a mother!

  • 1 We learn how to breathe again from the belly and close the body, and do some basic postnatal yoga postures with the baby.
  • 2 We talk about baby’s feedings, breastfeeding or bottle feeding, family planning, signs of postpartum depression, your changing body lines/shape, changing relationship with your partner and the environment. If the visit is in your house, we look at baby’s crib and how to optimal position it close to your bed.
  • 3 I answer all of your questions about how you can safely bathe your baby.
  • 4 I introduce you to postnatal massage and herbal steam tent, an ideal way to get back into shape and lose weight. Postpartum traditions are very present in the SE Asian cultures. They bring back warmth to the body and are very nurturing for mother and baby. Nourishing foods support the breastfeeding and bring back strength to the mom.
  • 5 A craniosacral therapy session is highly recommended after birth together with your baby so you can both benefit.
  • 6 After few weeks/months, you can decide whether you like to join the classes of postnatal yoga with baby massage, baby yoga or baby swimming.
