Post Partum Support

 

Preparation for birth - that's what many women and couples worry about. What comes after is often not considered and they forget that the birth is not the end, but a - THE - beginning. The beginning as a family, as a couple with a child, as parents of another child. In order for the postpartum period to be relaxed, families need support during this time as well. As expats, you may not have family members in Switzerland, so I can be a valuable support as your doula.


My postpartum tasks may be:

  • support in everyday life with your baby / baby
  • reflection on the birth
  • support in breastfeeding
  • support for your partner
  • help such as shopping assistance, going for a walk, light hosework
  • accompany to doctors visits
  • discussing questions about the new family situation


 

It is a great effort for me to support you as you need it at the moment. I would also like to bring awareness to you with regard to further family life in order to prevent exhaustion.

The tasks are defined together in the preliminary discussion and are adapted to the needs of the family.
