Coffee Delivery and what a Postpartum Doula can do for YOU
March 23, 2016
One thing I can count on in the morning is my coffee delivery.
No this isn’t some new option that my local Starbucks or coffee shop offers.
It is my husband.
Every morning without me asking, he just knows, sometimes even before I am able to get myself out from under the covers.
Without it I can get through the day, I can make my own cup (but it never tastes as good), I can try and get to it while juggling a million other things. However, it is the start that I need to have a better day.
How would it feel to have someone so attuned to your needs as a new family as you transition into life with your newborn? Someone who helps you feel like your best possible self. A person who is not judging the choices you made for your growing family but offering you unwavering support.
Did you know a postpartum doula can do that for you?
