Newborns First Week Home
A newborns first week is both tremendously thrilling and very exhausting. So much is happening around you, and this can sometimes be overwhelming. There are so many new things you need to learn about taking care of your precious newborn. But it's vital that you remember you're not expected to be perfect at everything immediately. So take everything in your stride.
To help you enjoy this new experience, here's a heads-up on what to expect during your baby's first week home and how to deal with it.
The Benefits of Hiring a Birth Doula And Postpartum Doula
When your baby is born, having a doula at your side can be really helpful. Whether you choose to have a birth doula, a postpartum doula, or both, your support system for labor and parenting will be solid. The great thing about doulas is that your whole family can benefit from you having one.
What’s The Difference Between A Doula And A Midwife
Since both midwives and doulas assist parents throughout labor, they appear to be similar to one another. Expectant parents who choose to deliver with or without using pain medication most frequently use them both. However, their functions during birthing are actually somewhat dissimilar.
