Postpartum & Infant Care

We know you love a good IPA! And we do too! You know what we mean right? Those Impressive Parenting Accomplishments?! Like when your baby is being held by a friend or family member. The baby starts crying, so they hand them back to you, and just like a hot summer Detroit night, that IPA hits the spot! Your baby responds and immediately stops crying!

BAM! That’s an Impressive Parenting Accomplishment!

Ok, now we’d like to welcome you to reality. Those moments will definitely come, but that is not typically what early parenting looks like. That IPA will take a good handful of weeks to reveal itself.

Early on, amidst beautiful moments of sleepless yet blissful bonding experiences, your baby will seem unsettled. You will try all the things. You’ll feed, you’ll diaper, you’ll pat, you’ll bounce, you’ll burp, you’ll rock… And ultimately… you’ll cry right along with your baby, just like we did. So your partner will give it a shot, just like ours did. They’ll walk, they’ll bounce, they’ll pat, they’ll shhhhush, they’ll sing, they’ll console and… your baby will still cry… just like ours did.

The truth is, while this is an amazing life moment, none of us are equipped for it! None of us have been asked about our parenting philosophies and absolutely none of us had a plan for implementation.

Until now.

This is exactly what Postpartum & Infant Care Doula Support looks like when you incorporate the care of Metro Detroit Doula Services!

Let us tell you what you can expect! Pssst…CLICK the slides BELOW.
