“ Our doula provided amazing hands on coaching for me and my husband and was a huge wealth of knowledge. My husband said it was awesome, like having a general manger there and that we would always have a doula for subsequent births . She brought a sense of calm and reassurance to the whole process.”
If you are feeding your baby breastmilk, what was the most helpful to get you started and/or to continue breastfeeding?
“Having the doula there to provide tips and ensure a good first feed, and having an appointment the day after birth with lactation consultants established a good latch. Being given information on what is normal vs what is not , knowing that sore nipples don't last and engorgement becomes less frequent once milk supply regulates. This kept me from worrying or wanting to give up or try bottles”
