THIS IS IT. The magic moment you imagined from your first look at that positive pregnancy test.
You, at home with your precious baby in your arms. baby at breast, your baby is feeding contently and your doting partner is meeting your every need. The house is in order, you are rested, nourished and hydrated and the scent of lavender wafts through your home. Meals are planned for the week, the gentle hum of the dryer affirms that the last load of laundry is almost complete and the thank you notes have all been sealed, stamped and sent to your loved ones.
That is what you imagined because THAT is what bringing a new baby SHOULD look like!
Here’s the thing, the most common one liner we hear when we explain what postpartum doula support actually looks like is…
“Where were you when I had my baby…”
But you’re not “one of those people.” You matter and you know it! And because of that, you’re here, in our nest, the Omaha Baby Nest where becoming a mother, matters.
