A Baby Registry Worth Sharing
The best advice I ever received during pregnancy was this:
"Don’t buy anything!"
For me this turned out to be completely true. Throughout pregnancy I was amazed at how many incredible baby things I was able to collect via hand-me-downs, sales, or gifts. Besides my Ergo Carrier, I can’t think of a single item that I didn’t find easily myself, or was simply given to me from parents needing to clear the clutter from their own homes...I was blessed to say the least.
However, when it came time to actually be a parent, I discovered that what I really needed wasn't the perfect swing, the perfect bottle, or the newest baby monitor (although those things are awesome!)....
...what I really and truly needed was one-on-one, hands-on support in my home.
While most baby registries are made of the usual; onesies, diapers, and fancy butt-creams, we at High Country Doula’s recommend a more direct approach to creating a registry that’s truly worth sharing.
Instead of asking for common items that (let's face it) last minute shoppers will buy you anyway, why not fill your registry with items that will pay off for you for time immemorial...
...why not ask for the gift of professional Doula care?
Professional Doula care Is truly an invaluable gift that we at High Country Doulas make easy for loved ones to give.
Our Registry Page is set up for you to add the items you truly know will make a difference onto your own registry using a site such as www.myregistry.com, or simply by sharing the page directly with your friends and family.
You could even post a link directly to our our Baby Registry Page on social media and say something like
"Dear family and friends! If you're looking for a unique way to "be there to help" without actually having to be here, here's a great way to do just that! We'd love your support in helping us set ourselves up for success with the professional care of a Doula!"
When they check out at our online shop, they can easily write in who the gift is for. We then add that gift to your account and you'll receive a gift certificate to be redeemed any time.
Not only are our services unique and intriguing (a great conversation starter at your shower) but they are truly gifts that keep on giving. The effects that high-quality support during pregnancy, birth and early postpartum can have on a family’s journey into parenthood cannot be overstated.
For example, our Postpartum Doula services help give parents the support they truly need during the early months and can prevent postpartum depression, support healthy newborn brain development, and lead to faster postpartum recovery for moms.
For family that live far away, or even for those that have support close by, Postpartum Doula care is one of the most thoughtful and precious gifts anyone could give to an expectant family.
