New Baby Care
Adjusting to Life with a New Baby
With Care For Moms you can rest, recover and adjust to life with a new baby with more confidence, peace and enjoyment. Life with a new baby is so much better when you aren’t running on empty!!
Studies have found that neglecting physical and emotional wellbeing during the delicate postnatal period can lead to infections, depression, and long-term physical side effects. The good news is that direct support in the home has been shown to play a role in decreasing postpartum depression as well as increasing the commitment to breastfeeding. We love to care for moms so they can focus on bonding with their new baby.
The time after the birth of your child doesn’t have to be stressful – it can and should be one of the richest and most fulfilling times of your life if you understand what your needs will be and plan for adequate assistance and care.
American Postpartum Practices
American postpartum practices lack the care desperately needed by new mom and dads. Today women are expected to return to their household duties and/or work very shortly after having given birth. This custom is not only unnatural but can also be exhausting for new parents who need to reserve their energy to adapt to the addition and rhythms of a new baby/babies. A lying in period of 4 weeks or more disappeared from American culture in the 19th century and has never returned, while most of the world continues to practice some version of this lying in period. A lying in period following childbirth helps to promote healing, encourage rest and protect the precious bonding period between mother and baby.
