12 Days of Doula #12

On the twelfth day with baby, my doula gave to me,

Confidence in public!

A qualified backup doula!

She entertained my toddler.

She reassured my partner.

She fended off my mother.

She helped me find resources.

She helped me with my feelings.

5 freezer meals!

4 loads of laundry!

3 hours of napping!

She helped me feed my baby.

And she sat down and listened to me.

How will I go grocery shopping? How many diapers should I pack in my bag? Where can I nurse while we're gone? What if my baby screams the whole time?

What if you had a wingman for those first times out in public with baby? Somebody to give you a hand or two. Someone to be there... just in case.

You don't have to go it alone. I'm happy to help! It feels crazy and unmanageable at first. But with a little bit of help the first time out and about, you'll find your stride and be ready to run on your own before you know it. 🛒🏃‍♀️🏃

The fine print: I know, COVID-19. Ugh. Maybe we can just practice at home lol. One day, you will go out with your baby. And you'll be adept at reading your baby's cues.
