What is a postpartum doula?
A postpartum doula offers massage to encourage the woman’s body to increase muscular strength and stabilize weight, supporting the body after birth. It encourages a balanced and healthy mother. Even supporting breastfeeding and postural support.
When this massage is combined with the body wrap potential to tighten, tone, and firm, the mother not only gains the benefit of the massage, but also the toning and tightening properties of the body wraps. This helps the mother to regain some confidence about her body postpartum.
Do I need a postpartum doula?
That’s completely up to you and your body. Postpartum (and prepartum) doula’s offer encouragement, massage, and natural services that can ease your body into and out of pregnancy. A postpartum doula can encourage the mother to have greater self-confidence and less postpartum depression. This sounds like something every mother should be interested in.
I have recently just learned about the world of doula care, and wish that I myself had had a doula present for my births. I believe that when a doula has cared for a mother throughout her pregnancy, she is able to keep the birth on track…reducing the medications offered and keeping the mother calm and centered to have a peaceful and drug-free birth if at all possible.
The idea of postpartum massage to encourage the tummy to return to it’s former state is incredible to me! Massage is healing and helpful to a new mother’s body. And when paired with the It Works body wraps, there is not only the healing factor, but also the slimming factor. We all know that our tummies aren’t exactly flat and smooth after baby is born. So a service combined with a revolutionary product is pretty incredible!
How do I find a postpartum doula?
Most doula’s work before, during, and after pregnancy. A postpartum doula will encourage mental and physical health after baby is born. Any doula can be searched online or in your local hospital. Most hospitals (if they’re good ones) will offer resources for you if you choose to seek out a doula to help keep your birth as natural as possible. You can find one who fits with you and your birth plan easily.
You can even use the body wraps in your own home without the help of a doula. Click here for more information about the skinny wraps to help tighten and tone your post baby body back up! 🙂
