Rain or Shine Doulas
How did the hospital just let you leave with this tiny human? Do you feel like you need a grown-up? Let us break down the baby-specific ways your ROS Postpartum Doula will be supporting you. Our approach is going to be tailored to your stage of life, be it a new parent or seasoned pro. There are ebbs and flows for each and we are here for it!
The two most important right at the top because OF COURSE they are the hop topics.
Infant Feeding Support
Your ROS Doula is on board for all ways to feed your baby. We specifically took Infant feeding training rather than specific lactation training. The ultimate goal is to feed your baby. What that looks like is up to you, and we will get you there. Human milk feeding is HARD. Formula Feeding is HARD. It can be a complex and sometimes challenging process for new parents and their babies.
HELLO….what in the world is going on? One of the most challenging aspects of caring for a newborn is navigating sleep patterns. Your ROS Doula provides valuable assistance by offering sleep coaching. This includes creating a conducive sleep environment, establishing healthy sleep routines, and guiding parents through strategies to encourage better sleep for both baby and themselves. We help new parents to better manage sleep challenges, promoting a more restful atmosphere at home.
The beauty of your ROS Postpartum Doula is we are either right there with you at 2am on an overnight Doula Visit, or we are a phone call away…at 2 am, because that is when you need help the most.
Infant Care Guidance
Your ROS Doula does not just come to your home and snuggle your baby. We also have lots of research hours and training in our back pockets to provide you with evidence based tips for newborn care. Rain or Shine Doulas excels in providing hands-on support and expert advice on newborn care. From diapering, swaddling, and soothing methods, they help new parents navigate the intricacies of caring for their precious bundle.
Developmental Milestone Monitoring
Keeping track of a newborn's developmental milestones is crucial, and your ROS Doula is there to guide you through this exciting journey. We offer evidence-based insights into age-appropriate activities and exercises that stimulate the baby's growth and motor skills. By fostering a nurturing environment, your ROS Doula helps create a foundation for the infant's overall well-being and development.
Emotional Support for Newborn-Related Concerns
“It gets better”, “just wait until…” , “I did this with baby and they were fine”.
These statements will not be said by your ROS Doula.
Welcoming a new baby can bring about a range of emotions and concerns. Your ROS Doula provides a compassionate ear and emotional support, addressing any anxieties or uncertainties related to the newborn. This may include postpartum blues, adjusting to the demands of caring for a newborn, or simply being a reassuring presence during the challenging days.
In the whirlwind of newborn chaos, your Rain or Shine Doula is not just your superhero; they're the wise sage you never knew you needed. From decoding the mysteries of infant feeding to orchestrating a symphony of sleep at 2 am, they've got your back. It's not just about diaper changes and swaddling; it's about transforming the cacophony of questions into a sweet lullaby of confidence. As you navigate the unpredictable seas of parenthood, remember, with your ROS Doula by your side, even the stormiest nights can end in a calm sunrise of baby bliss.
Here's to the adventure ahead – you've got this!
