Postpartum Support Helps Parents Find Their Footing
For many families, the postpartum period (or 4th trimester) is a rite of passage. If you feel unprepared to meet the challenges this stage of the journey brings, know that you aren’t alone. At Somatic Sole, our postpartum doula services provide support and encouragement. As a result, you will find your footing in your new role.
Also, we offer a place to discuss the hard things. And whatever you feel as a new mother is welcome. Maybe you don’t feel connected to your baby. From feelings of overwhelm, confusion, or happiness about your birth experience, we are here to support you. Tell us about your birth story, and we will celebrate it with you. At Somatic Sole Massage, we believe that many postpartum mood disorders stem from a lack of community or tribal feelings. Also, we remember all the details and know how to help and what to do without being asked. We believe it’s about the little things.
Transition Help During the Fourth Trimester
Many mothers talk about experiencing unexpected loneliness or isolation in the first few months of their baby’s life. As a postpartum doula, we will be by your side to help you balance your needs with your newborns. We can fold ourselves into your life without breeching your boundaries or making you feel uncomfortable. Whether you have questions or just want company while you get used to life with a newborn, we are here for you.
Choose from our postpartum doula service menu that is personalized based on needs. Some of the things we help with include the following:
- Baby feedings (breastfeeding and/or bottle feeding)
- Managing boundaries with friends and family
- Light housekeeping
- Assisting with baby care like bathing, feeding, diapering, comforting
- Preparing meals
- Running errands
- Keeping mom comfortable
When you have support for these tasks, you only need to worry about nuzzling your new baby and gazing into their eyes. You will feel lifted by a community of support as you transition to life with a new baby. No matter if you’ve had a single birth or multiples or if you are a first-time or experienced mom.
And Remember …
Your postpartum doula is available to support everyone in the family. And it’s up to you how much help you want. Maybe you only need assistance during the first few days at home. Or perhaps you’d like a more extended period of weeks after coming home with your new baby. You may also consider hiring a postpartum doula several days a week. Ultimately, the choice is up to you and what your family needs.
