We all know the risks of sleep deprivation, such as obesity, high blood pressure, and strokes. If you are a new parent, sleep is even more affected by taking care of a new human being, adjusting to a new routine, and getting to know your baby. You know that old saying, “sleep when the baby sleeps”? Well, sometimes that is easier said than done, especially when you have more than one child, or you just can’t stop staring at your baby during the day.
Sleep is going to be a huge part of your physical recovery from birth along with many other things, such as helping to keep postpartum depression at bay, allowing you to be sharp and focused while doing important tasks (caring for your baby, driving, working, etc), and helping to keep your metabolisim in check.
One of the many reasons that I love being a Postpartum & Infant Care Doula is that I get to help new parents receive that precious sleep they are so desperately in need of.
When I am working an overnight shift my clients love that they know that they will be getting a very good nights rest. Whether they are formula feeding, combination feeding or exclusively breastfeeding, their quality of sleep will be at its best with my professional, experienced and nurturing support. They wake up feeling ready to take on the world!
During day shifts with my clients, they will be assured time to rest and focus on themselves and the baby instead of having to worry about whats for dinner, the laundry that needs to be done or keeping older siblings occupied. Showers, quiet time to bond with baby and NAPS will be abundant and they feel rejuvenated by the pampering that goes along with all the other benefits of having a Postpartum & Infant Care Doula.
Another perk to having a Postpartum & Infant Care Doula is that you will have complete peace of mind that while you are getting all that uninterrupted sleep, your baby will be taken care of EXACTLY they way YOU would take care of them. Non-judgemental and unbiased support is of the utmost importance for us.
