It’s Doula Appreciation Week!

March 22-28 is a time to be grateful for all that doulas provide to us during pregnancy, birth, and beyond!

A doula is a professional labor assistant who provides physical and emotional support to you and your partner during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.

Did you have a doula?
How was your experience supported by your doula?

Doulas can support breastfeeding in lots of ways!
By teaching basic hold and latch techniques.
By discussing your feeding options and helping you sort out what’s right for you.
By helping you to have a healthy and safe birth so you can get started with the Golden Hour right away!
By providing education, encouragement, and resources to help you keep breastfeeding if you run into any bumps.
By connecting you to other knowledgeable providers who can assist and support you.

Thank your doula today!
