Doing the birth mentoring course together with my partner did not only prepare us for labour and parenthood; it also deepened our understanding of eachother in the process of ‘having a baby’. Having a very easy, beautiful and quick waterbirth at home and the most beautiful baby I had ever seen, I praised myself lucky.
Only to end up a week later in the worst emotional state I had ever been. Luckily Supriya and Roshnii prepared us for some babyblues. But this was next level. Supriya jumped in her car and was THERE. Having a profesional to talk to in those weeks, was absolutely invaluable and with her compassion and understanding of motherhood and life, I quickly regained clarity in my head and went on to enjoy my baby and life.
Also Roshnii, her support in the breastfeeding journey made a lot of difference. I now would recommend everyone to have a pospartum Doula, and reach out whenever you need. Those ladies definitely taught me that there is simply no need to struggle by yourself, but, trust, share and feel supported instead.
