Greetings Budding Birth & Postpartum Doulas!!
I have been a postpartum doula for 4 years and have developed much insight through the experiences of new mothers, fathers and families and what support they need to transition smoothly into the fourth trimester through my specialized Maternal Child health training.
How can you serve your target audience as well as your community??
I have created a digital postpartum planner to not only complement your services but enhance your support for your postpartum clients. This planner has the basic structure of the five basic needs a new mom should consider, her village, interacting with nature, partner connection, creating a sanctuary for rest, postpartum nutrition and a little more in between. If you have any other certifications, licenses or specialties, I encourage to curate this planner to fit the needs or your clients to properly prepare for their recovery.
