Postpartum Doula

My personal orientation towards Postpartum Doula Services is focused on the emotional wellbeing of mother after birth; this includes supporting mother with a focus on her emotional and physical needs and communicating awareness of contemporary realities in early motherhood. Education of the difference between ethnokinship (the village supports mom and newborn) and technocentric (mother and baby usually alone, with partner at work and extended family absent) cultural norms after childbirth are key, and allow for many modern-day Motherhood Myths to dissolve, this making space for self-care and asking for help.
