You know, before you become a mother, you watch other people do it, usually from a distance. I was fuzzy on post partum life, and Anna really helped me wrap my head around, prepare for, and live all the aspects of new mothering that I knew were part of it, and was drawn to, but was doing for the first time. She helped me to structure my days and nights, and to savor them deeply. Specifically, she helped me clarify, by talking with me, my postpartum routines and priorities, my plans to co-sleep, and my approaches to communicating with my husband and other helpers. She was hands on, helping me learn to cloth diaper and with my nursing routines. We belly laughed, she ran majorly helpful errands, and she took photos that I love so much. She modeled gentleness and quietness with my baby, setting a tone I was so grateful to carry on. I will always cherish her influence on me with a full heart.
Anna served as our baby's nanny from the time she was just a few weeks old until about 8 months. Although she didn't serve us with postpartum doula care, I can attest that Anna is one of the kindest and most patient people I've ever known. She has a natural gift with babies that is immediately apparent and always put all of us at ease. If I were to ever have another baby and needed postpartum care, I would not hesitate to hire Anna. My experience working with her was 100% positive, and anyone in her care would be lucky to have her support.
