Postpartum Workshop

$400.00

Description

Many families find the initial weeks after the arrival of a baby challenging. They’re learning how to care for a new baby, helping siblings adjust, and trying to get some sleep! A Postpartum (Postnatal) Doula can make this transition easier. Your presence can help parents enjoy the early days with their baby and discover the techniques that work for them. 

Postpartum doula training programs often focus on physical techniques or skills that you can use during the early postpartum period. Being a postpartum doula though is much more than simply making healthy family meals, or caring for an older child. Parents are trying to make decisions about where their baby will sleep, which vaccinations to choose, how to calm a crying baby, and learning how to breastfeed. All of these are things that a postpartum doula can help with. You’ll learn techniques for helping a client debrief their birth, identify how they want to parent their new baby and support them through any difficult decisions. You’ll cover basic first aid measures, healthy meal planning, recognition of home safety, and tips on household tasks. In the physiology module, you’ll look at maternal and infant health, nutrition, sexuality and relationships in the postpartum period.
