Dear Momma, I know having a newborn in your home is hard. I know you are feeling overwhelmed and I know you are feeling scared. I also know you are doing the best you can with where you are right now.

 I would like to tell you that you don’t have to do this alone, why would you, why would you want to? Help is here for you and now is the time to say yes, I deserve to be supported. It is important that you are cared for at this challenging time that brings with it many changes. We all know you cannot pour from an empty vessel.

Allow yourself to be wrapped in the comfort of non judgemental support. Allow yourself to be cared for on many levels. Let your body be nourished with good food that has been prepared for you, for your weary bones to rest a while and your brain to shut off. Give yourself permission to be pampered like a Momma deserves to be, after all you have been working very hard over the last 40 weeks growing a baby and bring him into this world.

Now is a time for rest, time to recuperate, time to just be. Allow others to mother you while you bond with your baby and learn about each other. After all you’re going to be together for a long time. 

 I am here for you, I am your Doula.

 Michelle
