24 Apr Parents Are Hiring Postpartum Doulas, And Here’s Why.
New parents in the Pacific Northwest are hiring Doulas Northwest for Postpartum & Infant Care Doula support in droves, and there are good reasons why.
We all know how joyful (and tiring, confusing, stressful, overwhelming, defeating) it can be in those early months as a parent. And I see many messages out there saying that “getting through it alone is simply part of your initiation, so….suck it up Moms & Dads!”
I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to do this alone, and that you are not wrong if you’d prefer to have a support system that can help increase the joyful moments and reduce the tough moments.
Here’s why moms and dads in the PNW are choosing to hire Postpartum & Infant Care Doula support from Doulas Northwest:
After being told “No” by several others and hearing Kristyn say “Yes, I can help you with that.”:
“My stress began to melt away.”
A new mother speaking to how choosing overnight support benefitted her family:
“I was more present during the day and able to get to know my babies in a joyful way.”
After hearing from Kristyn about DNW’s availability for infant feeding consultations, sleep shaping guidance, and overnight support:
“This is exactly the level of care we are looking for. What’s the soonest we can be added to your schedule?”
New dad, after hearing that we’ve been there and specialize in helping him and his family recover and rest:
“I just have to tell you that hearing you say that has me teary eyed right now…”
After giving birth to twins:
“They made my transition from singleton mom to twin mom much smoother than I had thought it could be. It may be hard to believe, but our twins have felt EASIER than my first child.”
This parent’s feedback after receiving postpartum support:
“I am at a place where I feel empowered to parent my children.”
When summing up several weeks of postpartum support:
“Doulas Northwest has played an invaluable role in making our dream of peace and contentedness with these babies, a reality.”
Speaking to the anticipation of her doula coming over that day:
“Just knowing that there was someone, an expert I could talk to that day, made each frustrating moment less intense.”
After time with her Doula, this client felt:
“My Doula is a kind, warm and thoughtful professional. Her wisdom and understanding were so helpful to me. She is passionate about her work and it shows in the care & compassion she brings.”
Thinking back on their initial uncertainties as parents:
“The support we had as first time parents was exactly what we needed without really knowing what we needed. They were encouraging, knowledgeable and supported our decisions which really gave us peace of mind.”
I think it bears repeating: You do not have to do this alone.
