Adding a new life into your family is hard. I get it. I’ve done it 4 times, and each time I wondered how I would manage to have enough love and time for another child. I worried that we had made a huge mistake and wondered how we could possibly fit another completely dependent person into our lives. I am only one person – how could I possibly be responsible for so many little people?
The transition to parenthood does not always come easily. It can be a struggle to adjust with a new baby, especially if you already have children. Without sufficient support, postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety have the perfect environment to flourish. I know, I’ve fought postpartum depression myself and I’ve come out the other side.
You don’t have to feel like you’re juggling 20 different balls in the air while also trying to heal! You can be present in those moments and not worry about all of that other stuff! You can build your confidence and say good-bye to all that parent guilt. It’s true! All you have to do is ask for help.
It’s simple really.
An extra set of hands to help, an extra set of ears to listen, an extra heart to love and nourish all the people in your family, and the knowledge of all things baby and birth that an Edmonton doula has can make all the difference in how the Fourth Trimester feels for you.
The Fourth Trimester can be such a challenging time. The first months can seem overwhelmingly dark and stormy as you attempt to figure out both this new person in your life and all of the changes that a baby brings.
Nobody should have to struggle alone! Let me build your confidence and help you adjust to having another little person in your life.
