Manon was a LIFESAVER for me once I got home from the hospital with my baby. I was in touch with her quite a bit before I delivered too..she helped me with my baby registry and even came to an OB appointment with me! This communication I believe is what set us up for success as we were so in sync once I got home...which is VITAL. She was there to help guide me with regards to breast feeding, ensuring I had the proper food and nutrition so my milk would come in, showed me how to bathe my newborn, swaddle, soothe and so much more. If I got stressed out she was only a phone or text message away with a solution. She's like the Mama and baby whisperer.
Again: LIFE SAVER.
And a must have!!
Our labor doula, Domino, introduced us to Manon early on in our pregnancy. The connction was immediate -- the sense of ease, wisdom and grace she exudes was stunning. Not only would Manon become our Postpartum Doula but ultimately she would become our go to for all things baby and mama till this day (over two years later!) Manon’s energy, her wisdom, her dedication to teaching not just doing – meant everything to me as I journeyed through healing, recovering and the transition into motherhood. From the day we returned to our home after delivering our daughter, Manon was there. She taught, she mentored, she healed. She imbued onto me the confidence I needed to trust my mothers intuition. To know I’ve got this. Her stunning sense of calm, her unshakable strength, all bestowed onto us with a guiding hand in what inevitably is one of the biggest transitions in life – becoming parents. Which as we know has no rule book. To know you can count on the wisdom of those who’s experience brings LIGIHT to the journey – answers to the questions, calm to the storm – is everything and more.
