Doulas and birthing experts, you know how important it is to organize support after the arrival of a little one. However, we have learned that many new parents are so focused on the first three trimesters that they are a little unprepared for the 4th trimester.
The 12 weeks after the birth are an exciting and challenging time. It is a time of significant physical and emotional change as the baby adjusts to being outside the womb, and the parents adjust to their new life and try to find routines. Encouraging new parents to lean into their support networks and organize help from friends & family members may be one of the most important lessons you teach your clients.
In support of all that you do for you new parents, we have these helpful handouts to include in your Parent Packets.
