postpartum ballarat doula supporting new mums

During the fourth trimester, a mother experiences the BIGGEST hormonal shift of her life.  It's love-filled, messy, overwhelming and all-consuming at the same time. An extreme of polarities.  It culminates to a huge identify shift beautiful, one that takes time to navigate and piece together this new version of you.

The phrase "it takes a village to raise a child" is one you would of heard of over and over again- but in our modern society where family and friends are leading their own busy lives, this idea of 'the village of support' feels elusive.  Unfortunately the slower pace days- filled resting in bed with your baby and all your food brought to your bedside is almost unheard of.  Mum depletion is all too common. I don't want you to just survive early postpartum, I want to see you flourish and thrive in this season of motherhood. You deserve this.

So I invite you gorgeous girl to make you a priority.
During our connection call we will intentionally map out what 'ideal' early postpartum would look like for you.  We'll explore exactly what  the postpartum pillars; rest, nourishment, warmth, touch, community and nature actually are and how together we can practically work them into this season for you so that your emotional, physical recovery & overall wellbeing can be best supported.
