Welcome to Stork Helpers!
I created Stork Helpers to help families through pregnancy, birth and postpartum care. Whether you plan to have a natural childbirth or a ceserean, there are many choices and options along the way.
I will be your advocate. My role is to simplify the process for you and your partner so that you can make the decisions that are right for you and your family.
I get asked a lot having a big family and being a doula If I had my babies at home. My answer is no, having babies at home never appealed to me. The reality is I never educated myself on birth really let alone home birth. I watched TLC's show A Baby Story or movies, but never took the time for a Google search or doing some reading. Now that I have been a doula and have witnessed several home births. I see how beautiful and loving it actually is.
There’s two ways to have your placenta encapsulated. If you want to experience the raw consumption, but don’t think you can handle the texture, you can have them put in capsules. The other way is to have the placenta steamed before being encapsulated.
This is can be a big concern for most women who are pregnant. Women often have anxiety about their water break in the theatre, while at the mall, in church, at a restaurant or at work. The good news is this only happens in 10% of women while at home or in the grocery store.
