Good Latch/ Poor Latch

Breastfeeding can be very painful if done incorrectly. Below is an example of a Good Latch and a Poor Latch. Initially it’s natural for it to be painful. If you continue to have issues please contact a Breastfeeding Peer Counselor or a Lactation Consultant. Either one can educate you on how to successfully breastfeed and teach you new positions that may work for you and your baby. Please check out www.babygooroo.com

Tools for Comfort💆🌿

Tools for Comfort• A trained professional labor companion is a wonderful tool. Doulas know how birth works and will comfort and assist the laboring woman through any challenges. Although, a doula may cost more than the other tools, her wisdom and experience are worth it.

Epidural? Lets Pass Time!

Remember #UNO?? I love to use these cards as a distraction when my clients are trying to pass time. Usually labor progresses then STOPS! Don’t you hate that? Or maybe you get the epidural and now we just “wait”! But no worries your doula will find creative things for you to do so that you stay motivated! Plus #daddieslike to bet me in card games😂 #doula#hireOne #births #labor #delivery#epidural

Ask your Doula about Acupressure!

#BumpBabyBliss #Acupressure is one of my many techniques to help relax mommy. This is a good relaxing technique for those that get the epidural. Good way to relax your upper body and mind. I can even teach dads how to do it as well! #Doula #getOne #birth#labor #healthymommy #healthybaby#parenting
