A lot happens after baby comes and your needs can get lost in the process as all the focus starts to be on the baby.  Don't feel bad if you need time for yourself - having a baby is a huge change in your life. Your health and happiness are just as important as your baby's

Over the course of the month, I have been applying The 5 Love Languages written by Gary Chaplain to pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum.  This week, I am covering how you can apply these principles during postpartum.

Tamara is the absolute best Doula to hire! We were referred to her by a friend who had delivered with her, but I had no idea the extent of love she would graciously share with us on our birth day.

Our little one decided to arrive 4 weeks early. Tamara stayed with us every step of the way. Communicating during early labor and joining us at the hospital in the middle of the night when active labor started.

Stork Helpers is excited to announce that I now offer childbirth classes.   I have been going to childbirth classes across Cincinnati and Dayton for the last year seeing what is currently offered in the area.  I have also been talking to families about what they want out of classes and what they wish they had gotten out of a class.

After 12 weeks of bed rest. A belly that was 64 cm up & down & 55" around. Thirty nine weeks with four tiny feet kicking away waiting to come out. It was 6am when we arrived at the hospital for our scheduled C-section. You would think that I wouldn't be nervous, but I was. I don't know if I was more nervous or it was a different kind of nervous. We couldn't believe in just a few hours we were going to have twins in our arms & our family would grow from 7 to 9.

Why a Doula?
